Stevenson's Re-Spun Knees

DeShawn Stevenson is expected back in the Nets lineup Wednesday with knees that could be described as re-spun. While out the last seven games, Stevenson underwent the same therapy Kobe Bryant swears by.

The blood-spinning treatment involves removal of a athlete's blood, spinning it into a growth hormone-rich plasma that is then injected back into his knee twice a day. "I don't feel none any of that swelling. None of that," he said. "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)," added Stevenson. "Yeah, my knees feel real, real, real good."

How did it come about? Bryant, who underwent the tretament and says his knees are 90 per cent better, recommended it to Gilbert Arenas. Arenas didn't travel to Germany like Bryant and Rodriguez but was treated by the German physician's associate in New York, Dr Edward Capla. Arenas then recommended the therapy to his former Wizards teammate, Stevenson.
