This is what happens when you return too soon from injury. Rose had all the time in the world to heal, get rest, take some time off, etc., but instead he just had to rush back.

This makes absolutely no sense since it was his OTHER knee that was injured.

What is it about Portland's arena and knee injuries though? Was it erected on some Native American burial ground?

I don't get how many sports superstitions are blamed on the premise of Native American burial grounds. Angel Stadium of Anaheim. Qualcomm Stadium. Talladega Superspeedway. I don't get it at all.

Yeah, the knee Rose has been putting more weight on (whether it be walking, running, jumping, etc.) ever since he tore his ACL.....

It's easy for folks that have never had a torn knee ligament to say how easy it is to recover from one. What people don't realize is that these injuries are way more mental than physical. It takes a long time to get over the mindset of "If I walk, run, turn, whatever....can my knee not get hurt?".

We see one freak athlete return to playing form soon after tearing knee ligaments, and suddenly everyone believes that all players can perform like Adrian Peterson has. Just doesn't work that way.

Great points made, not everyone is AP, you can't expect everyone to come back after 8 months and be the same as before. Peterson has ruined the expectation for ACL injuries.

I was going to post about the Clippers destroying the Bulls then I remembered Rose was out.

Don't worry; the Bulls destroyed themselves in investing time and energy to an unfortunate, injury-prone player. Kind of how the Blazers invested heavily on Oden. Kind of how all the Lakers fortune right now is dependent on Kobe returning from his Achilles tear.

No, the Lakers are geniuses on counting on Kobe, that way when the Lakers blow up into fiery hell, they can ride out on a horse with Andrew Wiggins.

Easy on the "fiery hell".

Kobe signs two year extension.

Umm...it's a running joke about this classic trope....

Kobe's two-year extension will STILL make him the highest paid player in the league. Laker fans should be furious, since Kobe's selfishness is going to cost them a chance at one of the big-name free agents next summer.

This.

If all that matters is that 6th ring you have a funny way of showing it Mamba.

They were in the market for two big time stars and now they are lucky if they get one. Not that I'm complaining. At the end of the day Kobe is still just a player trying to get his so I can't be mad at him. The Lakers organization on the other hand should know better. They should know his new deal should be worth half that, not as a stab at Kobe, but as a means of surviving after he is gone in 3 short years. It's not like they feared him going somewhere else for even less so why do this?
