Courtney Lee: I Could Have Lost My Life Tonight

New, comments

Apparently, Courtney Lee was involved in a car crash following the Houston Rockets 97-84 win over the New York Knicks last night. Here's what he wrote on his twitter at 2:41 am:

Thanking God right now!!! Thanking Cadillac for airbags!! Without them I could have lost my life tonight and two others close to me.

Via Jonathan Feigen, this wasn't incidental contact.

"The other driver ran a red light doing like 100 mph," Lee said via a text message on Sunday.

Heavy stuff. Please, if you're out driving late at night, try to avoid smacking Courtney Lee (or anyone, for that matter) with your car. The Rockets' bench requests his presence at all times.

Lee is averaging 9.3 points per game this year. He's been a crucial key to the Rockets' success and remains a valued two-way commodity as a wing stopper with explosive hops and three-point range. Glad to hear he's OK.
