KD is why you don't rush Cam back....

Recommended Posts

KD WAS the best player in the NBA, then the Warriors got desperate, Bob Myers accelerates his timetable from limited 5-5 practice to full-tilt NBA finals

slow-mo of this injury is terrible to watch, that's an achilles folks

Then you get a crocodile tearing executive trying to be the victim

the hell with you as you fight back crocodile tears!

 

Cam is a generational dual threat talent, you don't rush him, soft tissue and tendon injuries are much different than bone fractures, they take longer to heal and when torn can be devastating.

 

I am rooting for KD the person, contract year and he just suffered an injury that will alter the player he once was

You just want Cam to sit out so Tom Terrific can get another ring.

Sad day for basketball fans and an awful look for the NBA. I know the fans share blame in this too, but the NBA and the media have created a culture where they villainize the player for sitting out. See Kawhi last year. These doctors give their "medically cleared" opinions and the pressure to play starts. This has to stop and the athletes need to listen to their bodies. The scans don't show everything imo. 

That slow-motion video puts a pit in my stomach. The history of the NBA for the next 5 years just changed drastically. If an achilles tear is the kiss of death for a 5' 10" football player built like a brick poo house, can you imagine trying to run, jump, spin, and cut on a dime with a 7 foot 250 pound frame? He won't play a single minute next season and will probably be a shell of what he was when he eventually tries to return in the Fall of 2021. 

What does he even do now? Just sit out? Who's going to sign him? Who's going to pay for the surgeries and PT and rehab once his contract expires? Maybe the Warriors throw him a new good contract since they screwed him over.

Not similar situations whatsoever.

It depends on the narrative you want to spin.

what's pathetic is you still live with your mom at 38

 

Now... If you paid attention last season, it was quite obvious Cam played for nearly a month and had the same zip on the ball as an 82 year old Peyton Manning. He was playing injured with cartilage damage

Since we’re talking about the game last night, let’s talk about those classless fans who cheered when KD got hurt...

I believe kd was done this year regardless if he came back game 5 or game 7, I think it was similar to the Richard Sherman injury years ago, partial tear and only a matter of time before a complete tear occurred. I believe the sentiment was to bring kd back game 6 or 7 depending on if the warriors could tie it up 2-2 or go up 3-2, but they found themselves in do or die so kd came back earlier than expected and empty the tank before his Achilles tore

I saw a video of a whole bar in Toronto trolling him and cheering. Terrible look for them.

That was an edited video. They took the video of a bar reacting to what was originally a soccer goal (I believe) and just edited the KD injury over the projector screen. Notice how there is no one wearing a Raptors jersey and the projector screen itself is somehow quite shaky during the clip.
