Stevenson Praises Knee Treatment
DeShawn Stevenson said his arthritic knees feel as good as they did eight years ago after undergoing the controversial blood spinning treatment.
Stevenson, who has missed the last seven games because of the pain in his knee, said his blood was drawn from his arm, frozen, spun, and injected back into his knees twice a day by a doctor in New York.
“I don’t feel none any of that swelling. None of that,” said Stevenson, who is expected to return Wednesday against the Grizzlies. “It was very expensive, but it was worth it. The Nets took care of my right knee and I took care of my left knee — $12,000 apiece.
“Probably 2004 (was the last time my knees felt this good). Yeah, my knees feel real, real, real good.”
