Stephen Curry’s scary fall gives former Lion Jahvid Best concussion flashback

Former Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best knows as well as anyone how Golden State’s Stephen Curry felt following that scary fall in Sunday night’s NBA playoff game.

Best, 26, hasn’t played in the NFL since the sixth game of his second year when he suffered a series of concussions.

When Best saw Curry’s collision, he had a flashback — sort of — to a similar incident.

It came during Best’s final season at the University of California in 2009:

In reality, that was the beginning of the end of Best’s football career.

So after he saw what happened to Curry, Best tweeted: "That Steph fall reminded me of mine … I think, I don’t really remember mine."

Curry, assuming he doesn’t develop concussion symptoms in the next day or so, apparently escaped serious injury, passed the brain-injury protocol and eventually was able to return to the game.

Best, a first-round pick by the Lions in 2010, wasn’t so lucky.
