    And, 5 minutes into the season and Hayward breaks his leg. That was not pretty.

    My son came running in to show me the injury on his phone. Disgusting. Reminds me of the Louisville player a couple years back, without the skin breakage.

    Not nearly as bad as that, IMO, mainly because the actual footage of the break was obscured by other players. That Louisville player's break happened in fully view of everyone watching.

    His agent is denying the break until Gordon’s Player’s Tribune article about it comes out.

    Ainge traded the possible #1 pick in the 2018 draft for Kyrie because he thought with Hayward he could win the Eastern Conference this year and maybe compete for it all next year after Jaylen Brown and Jayson Tatum come into form.

    Well, so much for that.
    Part of it is based on academic grounds. Among major conferences, the Pac-10 is the best academically, largely because of Stanford, Cal and UCLA. “Colorado is on a par with Oregon,” he said. “Utah isn’t even in the picture.”

    Oh, man. That's too bad that a player that cold-hearted left my favorite NBA team breaks his leg in the first game with his new team. Really hate to see that.

    It looks like Connor Barwin had a similar injury several years back and he came back the next year and eventually played well enough to be a second team all pro. That said, different sports which make different demands on your ankles. In particular will he ever be able to regain his leaping ability.

    While many mention the Louisville player as the most gruesome sports injury on live tv, a very, very strong second is Napoelon McCallum of the Raiders on a Monday Night game vs the 49ers. I believe it was in the same game that Jerry Rice broke the career td record.

    MCCallum was very, very bad. Another one was Joe Theisman's broken leg, courtesy of Lawrence Taylor. THe injury ended up not being as severe as some other fractures (although plenty bad) but it looked horrible.

    McCallum's leg was bent at a 90 degree angle at the knee in the wrong direction.

    The Louisville player transferred to another school and led that team to the NCAA tournament. McCallum almost lost the lower half of his leg, supposedly.

    Mcallum was the one I was trying to think of. That was the most grusome one I had seen.

    Fultz' shot is ugly, but not nearly as ugly as Gortat's Trojan warrior helmet haircut.

    Jeez, nobody remembers Paul George? That's what Heyward's injury reminds me of.

    I really like Thon Maker. He’s the NBA caliber version of what Chris Boucher did for Oregon last year and the perfect compliment to Giannis. I hope they stay together.

    Giannis is amazing. I think he might be the best player to come into the league since LeBron.

    I knew Doc Rivers was a bad coach, who lucked into Garnett and Ray Allen. I didn’t realize he was this stupid.

    has there ever been a more impressive meaningful last second shot in playoff history, considering time on the clock and degree of difficulty than the Middleton three to tie?
