What's in the water in Portland?
First, it was Jeff Pendergraph lost for the season with a torn ACL. Now, the reports are Elliot Williams has a patella injury and will miss the season.
Something isn't right in Portland. Injuries are a part of the game, but this is crazy. I've never seen so many injuries, especially knee injuries on one team.
I remember one of my more unpopular post was when I said that Portland's overall talent was overrated. People hated me for saying it.
There must be something there, maybe slippery practice courts? Alot of there injuries been leg/lower body injuries
Mr Knick I find it interesting everytime something unexpected happens you "made a thread about it and got ripped for it"
LOL, I actually did this time! No lie, I'll look for it and bump it.
OR maybe Portland's team doctors and training staff just aren't doing a good job diagnosing the players they draft. The reports are that Williams had a couple of knee injuries in college, but they were supposedly just bruises.
I mean, even Brandon Roy had plenty of knee injuries in high school and college.
May I just ask what overall talent has to do with injury? Because honestly, see very little connection. Basketball players get hurt. It happens. Being hurt has nothing to do with your level of talent. It could effect it over time, but youth seems to be on the Blazers side.
One of the reasons I put there was injuries. I should have explained that. My apologies.
oh add fabricio oberto to the list...he just retired today
Damn right now our bigman are Aldridge, Camby, and Cunningham (more of a small forward).Any free agent BIG MEN ANYWHERE!!!1
E-Will won't be there long sad to say. It will be a matter of time before they ship him off too.
Gotta be someting they eat, maybe not enough milk down there?
Their team is underrated not overrated. How many teams can have so many injuries and still be contenders?
Rudy Fernandez is injured and not playing today, not sure how serious.
Time for ''pretty boy'' Luke ''dirklone'' Babbitt.
Paul Allen needs to fire the medical staff and hire the ones in Phoenix.
You honestly think that "slippery courts" would be the reason why? My god...
