yeah they've had adjustments and know more about it (Tony mentioned he wore a special sock). from someone who's suffered from it, there's no real way to prevent it unless you use a real real comfy shoe (some players like different types of shoe, some like "quicker" shoes, others like "stronger" shoes, if you play ball, you'll kinda know what i mean).
but plantars fascitis could happen with any shoe you use that doesn't have the proper support or any surface you walk/run on. i bought some of those cheap $20 Protege shoes (the Al Harrington ones), it gave me it. once you have it, you credit Duncan for how he played in 2006. it's like a sharp hot knife/cramp like feeling when you try to be active. i still have them but wear Dr. Scholl's lol
anywho, i agree with you on that. plantars fascitis is an injury, but like Manu's broken nose, it's just a freak injury that can happen because of a number of factors that you wouldn't really think of.
