The Most Painful Injuries in NBA History

It is that time of the year again. The NBA Finals is almost winding up and Game 6 of the San Antonio Spurs and the Miami Heat is happening today. San Antonio is just one win away from bagging the coveted Finals trophy. Today, the Spurs can take it home to San Antonio while LeBron James, Dwayne Wade, Chris Bosh, and the rest of the Miami Heat will move heaven and earth to ensure that there will be a game 7 and that they’d be able to defend their title.

Championship at all costs

Any basketball player is envious of San Antonio and Miami players’ position now as they are one win away from getting a championship ring in their fingers. Every year, each NBA player strives hard to get into the position that these players are in now. Some of these players even hurt themselves in the process, suffering from injuries that can be simple or life-threatening. Here is a list of some of the most devastating injuries suffered by NBA players.

·         Joel Przybilla’s knee injury. During one of their games, former Portland Trail Blazers center Joel Przybilla landed on his right leg after a try at getting an offensive rebound. Unfortunately, he has ruptured his right patella tendon. This happened after the Blazers have lost another center Greg Oden. Talk about a series of unfortunate events.

·         Josh Howard’s sprained knee. Almost everybody sprains their feet and everybody would agree that it hurts. Now imagine how painful it is for the Washington Wizards’ Josh Howard after he had sprained his knee. Did we mention that he needed surgery to fix that?

·         Steve Nash pops nose back. What is scarier, seeing Derek Fisher getting Steve Nash’s nose dangling from his face, or Nash popping his nose back on his face? Yes, Nash did try to pop his nose back in front of cameras zooming in on his face.

·         Tony Allen’s torn ACL. You’ve probably heard about how serious torn ACLs are. You would have to undergo surgery and months of painful therapy to get things right and be able to play again. We’re sure that Tony Allen would have instead taken a simple lay-up or jump shot if he knew that attempting to dunk the ball would have had his ACL torn.

These are just clear proof that an NBA player would do anything they can to win championships. While most get injured because of self accidents, there are times when an individual’s actions or negligence causes one to get hurt. In such instances, you can ask a good Los Angeles accident attorney to help you file and injury and hold people responsible for your injuries accountable for their actions, or the lack of it. A good Los Angeles lawyer can assist you in doing so should you wish to pursue a complaint against an individual.

In the second installment of this post, we will be tackling more devastating injuries in the history of the NBA.
