Iím wondering if certain supplements these guys are taking is making bones brittle or lessening density. Limbs should not be snapping in basketball.
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.
