    Jermaine O’Neal’s passport goes missing so he misses game in Toronto

    Golden State could have used Jermaine O’Neal Sunday night in Toronto.

    However he was back in the Bay Area not making the flight with the team. Not because of injury rather because he couldn’t find his passport, reports Monte Poole of CSNBayArea.com.

    (Warriors’ coach Mark) Jackson during his pregame news conference told reporters he was unclear whether O’Neal’s passport was lost or stolen or whether the veteran big man was facing another issue. O’Neal, who played 68 games as a Raptor during the 2008-09 season, is expected to reconnect with the Warriors prior to Tuesday’s game against the Pacers in Indianapolis.

    Losing his passport isn’t going to win any fans with Warriors management. It’s also going to ruin his future chances of being a contestant on The Amazing Race.

    Toronto showed better poise down the stretch and beat Golden State 106-98.

    This is even funnier since he used to play there

    The second to last paragraph is the most random statement. My response, "Oh, Okay??"

    Seemed like he "lost his passport" every other game while he was a Pacer.

    I think he called it a sore ankle or something while Tinsley referred to it as a "sinus infection"

    "Food Poisoning" is a reason i have heard in a while and that one seemed to be used quite frequently.

    I remember a game in Chicago where like 4 of the starting four Pacers missed the game because of food poisoning.

    Ruined his plans to dominate the Canadian border.

    I'm sure glad he doesn't need a passport to come to Indy. We could use him in the game.

    Makes me wonder what would happen to a player who couldn't get a passport.

    What I don't get is why they couldn't fly him to another city and just drive to Toronto.

    I'd check out his play lately before saying that.

    Over the last 10 games his points and rebounds equal Roy Hibbert's - 11.3 pts, 7.4 rebs, 58% FG. Before anyone says it, yes I know he's only averaging 1.1 blocks and isn't as good a rim protector as Roy.

    Larry is not coming back, he didn't have a meeting with Orlando for not reason, yeah he is coming back to the NBA but not to the Pacers, the notion that he is a taking a year off and then come back is absurd.

    Umm ... because you still need a passport to get into Canada?

    They did away wi9th the other forms of identification being acceptable some time ago, and the card that you can get instead of a passport is essentially just a compact passport.
