Frustrated NBA player punches team bench, breaks arm

Nobody likes playing poorly, but Enes Kanter of the Oklahoma City Thunder made it so much worse for himself Thursday night when he punched the team bench out of frustration and, in doing so, broke his arm:

Forearm breaks like Kanter's typically take about two months to heal. "It's tough, man, especially to do it the way he did it, it's very unfortunate," said the Thunder's Russell Westbrook after the game. "He's a strong man, and he'll be back better."

The Thunder ended up winning the game anyway, beating the Dallas Mavericks 109-98. Kanter lost to the chair, 1-0.
