This kind of injury has happened more in the past 3-4 years than all of the previous 15 years I watched the nba.

Yea. I agree. I mean it happens, but it should not happen every yr. It's possible. Mainly your shit should break at the ankle level. I mean it should give. Like I majorly ****ed my ankle all the way up my my calf was swollen and bruised, but it's not like my shin snapped. Some dudes just have weak bones, some dudes jump super high. Like that Hayward shit was hella force. I didn't see this one. Don't want to. Saw Hayward live.

But even then you're right in that it should not snap like that. There are reasons I can think of why it would snap. Some peds as well as supplements. I think if you boost your testosterone too high and limit your estrogen you can weaken your bones a lot.

In middle school we were jumping off this box and dunking and my friend jumped up And kinda slipped his hand on the rim and fell and broke his collar bone. That's the only time I've seen anyone noticeably break something in ball, but that was a huge fall and we were kids.

The Derrick Rose curse

He was on the court for PGs, Haywards, and Leverts broken leg injuries

Damn what a shame, been a huge U Michigan sports fan for awhile now (it was my dream school but I realized that after the deadline to apply in senior year years back lol). I always thought LeVert was a solid player there and had a chance to be a solid role player in the league.

Hopefully he recovers well, praying for you bro.

It's a crushing blow for us. He was by far our best player and he was in the running for Most Improved Player.

It's absolute damn shame cause he clearly put in the work over the summer to get stronger, faster, a better shooter and ball handler.

Hopefully he comes back the way Paul George comes back, but it's a damn shame. He was head and shoulders better than our next guy, despite all the naysayers who want Kenny Atkinson fired cause he prefers LeVert over Dlo.

He "just" dislocated his ankle and foot. So no broken bones.

A lot better than what is appeared to be.

looks like it just dislocated with minimal ligament damage. definitely looked worse, but good for him. Glad that's all it was.

This sucks for the organization..... they were playing pretty good of late as well.

I'm thinking that the eating habits of today's youth had a lot to do with injuries. Look at all the Tommy John surgery in MLB these days -
