Last season it was Kobe and Westbrook and Rondo.
Before that Rose and Dwight.
Before that Manu and Billups.

Every year a major contributor on a really good team goes down.

Could it be LeBron or Durant? Could it be Melo or Harden? Curry again? Deron?

I kinda think Westbrook may have started his string of injuries. Violent style and though meniscus isn't much, as far as surgeries, it's still the knee of a explosive guy.
On the East, it could be Paul George. Just got a bad feeling.

The team I see having injury luck is the Old Nets but Clips got a chance to fail too.

Wade for Miami

CP for Clippers

Kyrie for Cavs

 

 

I hope I am wrong. I hate to see anyone get hurt.

I have a feeling about Wade too. And I agree about Westbrook, because of his style of play.

Curry gets injured a lot unfortunately, man has glass ankles. And Chris Paul has been banged up as well.

Curry for GSW.

Irving for Cavs.

Williams for Nets.

 

Oddly enough all PG's.

 

As for a team, while nothing major I actually cannot help but think Clips will be a little injury ridden, nothing major but certainly noticeable.

Now, most of you picked guys who are often hurt anyway.

Blake G is often banged up.

Btw, can Hibbert big self hold up? So few C's stay healthy.

Why would I pick a guy who hasn't been hurt to suddenly get hurt?

I hate seeing major stars get injured. This last offseason would have been different with rose, rondo, Kobe, and westbrook playing healthy

I agree, at this age he's flexible, but I've seen him dunk a few times and land awkwardly, and it looks like a "Livingston" could happen at anytime

SMH. 

 

I Hope Howard is miserable in Houston and I hope he fails in every aspect of the game, but we should never wish harm or injury to ANY player.

So hoping someone fails in every aspect isn't worst than getting injured??? haha
