    Amazing how injury prone nba players are. Game is the least physically exerting sport and they miss weeks at a time. Football and hockey literally behead and cripple each other weekly and they good to go the next game no problem. Basketball got the weakest culture. Soccer players flop but least they play.

      @Ray Brown Among all sports, men's football accounted for the largest average annual estimated number of injuries (47,199) and the highest competition injury rate (39.9 per 1,000 athlete-exposures). Men's wrestling experienced the highest overall injury rate (13.1 per 1,000) and practice injury rate (10.2 per 1,000)

    its so obvious that labron and ad are resting saving themselves for the playoffs when they are well rested. this is also why they want other great players to pick up the slack while they rest most of the season on fake injuries.. ad is the most injured "star" ever in history! nothing but coat riders who want to get paid but dont want to play the whole season.. all while telling their teammates to do the dirty work for them so they can just show up come playoffs time..

    There is know way that AD will come back and contributeContribution after missing almost half the season the other players right 1 to 2 steps ahead of him I don’t care how good you are the type of injuries in his size frame is not going to justify him to come back and be in the shape like that of 6’3” guard it’s not going to happen.

    When you saw a Bulls vs Hawks game in the 90's you could put money on the fact that MJ, Pip and Nique would be in the game. These days when you watch Nets vs Mavericks you might get Kyrie, James and Luka or a G-League team vs the ball boys and the ticket guy. You just never know anymore.
