Hoop and the Harm

My biggest pet peeve in basketball these days is that anytime a player gets knocked to the ground, they have to lay motionless on the ground for a few minutes as if they're on the brink of death. If a skinny WR can bounce up after being drilled over the middle by a free safety, then Dwyane Wade can pull himself up from the floor after driving the hoop. Sadly, it doesn't look this trend will be ending anytime soon:

i saw livingston pull the same move the other night in the clippers game. annoying.

this is the reason i can't watch soccer. everything else about the sport is cool, but the minute they get banged in the shin, they roll around on the ground crying for five minutes.

I remember that play too. It seemed like the cameraman got the worst of the collision, but Livingston was the one that went motionless.

Basketball players have become a bunch pussies... They whine and cry about everything. Boxers make less money than they do, and they never flop like little fairies, or complain...Bunch of nancyboys...

Hey, soccer players don't roll around 'cause they're wimps; they stay on the ground because there are no timeouts in the game and that's the only way they can give their midfielders a breather.

Are you guys fucking idiots? The kids entire body momentum and weight got stopped by his leg at a horrible angle! He probably tore some tendons and popped his kneecap out of place. I'm an all-state basketball player, and I've torn my ACL (ligament in my knee) twice, having two surgeries to recover from. It's a horrible pain, and a rough surgery to go through. That kid's leg got fucked up, give him a break. He won't be able to run for 9 months.

And you want him to just get up? Too bad he can't support his own weight on that leg now, so call him a "pussy" for beign injured. What a bunch of fucking dipshits.

Why'd you put your leg in the hoop the second time if you knew how much it hurt the first?

You don't have to put your leg in the hoop to tear your ACL. That was a dumb ass comment.

I really don't make a habit out of mocking anyone that leaves a comment, because I really do appreciate everyone that takes the time to do so. However sometimes people just beg for it and I can't help myself...

I know you are "the man" and all; and hey, you were even an all-state basketball player. But after you tear your ACL twice, it might be time to start working a little bit on kicking the cobwebs out of the skull and using your brain for a change. Do you think it's possible that these people leaving comments are just joking and everyone (even those who never got to do an "elephant walk" with fellow all-staters) actually realizes it's probably a serious injury? Ya think maybe they're just being facetious with their remarks? I dunno--I guess you do know better, having scored 40 points for Polk High and all. Anyway, I know you have work to do, so I won't take up more of your time. But do you think on your way to the back, you could see if you have these in a 10 1/2? Thanks.

damn...what great friends. I think what really did this guy in was the fact that his buddies essentially threw him back down onto the trampoline.

Listen carefully as he hits the trampoline....CRACK....*shudder*

So, I guess noone's interested in photoblogging, or 'myspace turned inside out,' or any of the other somewhat lame GoogleAds that were attached to this post. Oh well, looks like my dream of buying a sports' franchise is still a ways away. Tho the Royals can't be all that expensive these days (do they still count as a sports' franchise?)

Damn, I knew I should have included the word "boobs" in my post!

Actually, it really doesn't hurt when you tear your ACL. It feels a bit akward though, and it'll limit what you can do, and it'll definitely hurt if you try to jump with a torn ACL, but the actual ripping usually doesn't hurt, at least from my experience.

that pop when they dropped him was not his leg. it was the goal hitting the ground.

Let me tell you, blowing out your ACL doesnt hurt immediatley. Only when you try to move your leg again. Then you are talking about some real pain. Im totally Serial!

That was great, the kid was stupid for doing it in the first place, but his friends are even dumber for not instantly calling for help.
