What is the worst basketball injury you have ever seen ?

I have seen a lot Basketball injurys and these two guys sticksout Andrew Bogut and Shaun Livingston. I remember watching the games for both, when it happened seeing it being replayed on ESPN in slow motion, seeing bones braking slowly. Andrew Boguts was him falling onto his back his arm snapping more than once. The other is Shaun Livingston falling from a dunk I think and his knee completely collapsing. Both made me cringe.What is the worst basketball injury you have ever seen?

It has to be Shaun

It has to be Shaun Livingston, I've seen arms breaking before, but Livingston's leg collapsed like it was made if rubber

It was also absolutely unexpected, I mean it seemed like an absolutely ordinary play until the leg broke.

Last year, this dude at my

Last year, this dude at my gym had been complaining of a "headache" in his leg and was slightly limping untill he'd warmed up... after months of jump training. He was having a really great day. Dude was owning it. After the first hour, he was running back on D and grabbed a rebound close to the hoop. He landed fine, but there was a defender behind him who gently nudged him to help stop his own forward momentum... I guess my buddy was pivoting and applied counter force at the same time and then I saw his leg break in half! Right in the middle of the shin... I was close, I could hear the break/crack in a full gym... the bone was sticking out sharply like it was trying to break its way through the skin. I don't know how it didn't... skin is tough! It stretched alot and then there was him just letting loose this crazy uncontrollable scream. He fell on his butt and he picked up his leg to take the preasure off it and it flopped down at the wrong place... it was pretty disturbing.

Lesson learned though, train smart. Eat right, listen to your body and for gods sakes... don't over train!

Jorge garbojosa had a similar injury. Chase down block attempt, landed weird and his shin snapped in half. It was super gross and painful looking.

Its not on Livingston level but remember

wgen Blake Griffin blew out his knee on that dunk his real rookie season. In slow motion it just crumbled in the inside. One doctor said it exploded in his knee. Biggest one mite a been actually Rudy Tomjanovic getting punch in the eye. He was in the hospital for like a week.

Marquis Daniels' neck injury

Marquis Daniels' neck injury was very scary, anytime a guy is carried off the court on a stretcher it's not good. I thought he might be paralyzied.

Shaun

Shaun Livingston was awful. When Tomjanovich got punched that was awful too. I read a Slam article about that a couple years back that was pretty interesting.

I agree with JoeWolf. I was

I agree with JoeWolf. I was watching the game in which Daniels hurt his neck, and it was scary. It was a very routine play: Daniels was in the triple-threat and he bumped his head on an opposing player as he performed a rip move. It was very little contact and his neck didn't snap backwards much at all, but any neck injury can be so bad.

How about

Amare reaching out his right arm to boguts right arm to help him up...looks like thats not happening. Must have been a real slow awkward uhhhhh from having that hand out to retrieving it. But overall if you count getting punched as a basketball injury, Rudy T's is by far the worst. He almost died.

Livingstone looked the worst,

Livingstone looked the worst, but Rudy T's was the most severe. Apparently after he got hit he could taste something bitter in his mouth which turned out to be spinal fluid that was leaking. Took a number of surgeries to save his life. There's a great book about Rudy and the guy that hit him, Kermit Washington called The Punch.

@dave14

Their is a segment I think it's called Behind The Story on the incident on ESPN. It has all sides talking about it and about an hour or two long.
