Violence touches Simmons in Israel again

Former Husky Tre Simmons is finishing up his third full season playing pro basketball in Israel.
And for the second time in as many years, he’s become unwittingly involved in an attack that’s found him in the newspapers.
This time, according to this report, Simmons was watching after the son of a teammate when he discovered the teammate bleeding and unconscious after being attacked, then took him to the hospital. Sounds as if Simmons was unharmed.
In November 2007, Simmons was on the court playing when a game was interrupted by the explosion of a large firecracker. Here are some details on that incident.
Simmons is playing for Maccabi Tel Aviv, with whom he signed after helping lead another Israeli team, Hapoel Holon, to the Israeli League title last season.
But this season hasn’t gone as well as he has been averaging just over four points a game and this story from a few days ago said his Maccabi won’t make the playoffs.
