No Pain, No Gain: The Most Horrifying Injuries in the NBA


Excited about the sixth game of the NBA Finals today between the Miami Heat and the San Antonio Spurs? This game promises to be a good one as the players from those two great teams will try to outwit, outdo, and outplay their respective opponents to win the coveted championship ring. Will San Antonio finish this off or will Miami hold on for dear life and live another day? The game later has the answers.

While looking for articles about the coming game later, you probably have come across the earlier article we have posted about the worst injuries in the history of the NBA. Now, let’s continue with the list.

  • Andrew Bogut’s elbow injury. It’s common to see sprains and bones dislocated while watching games on the league. Three years ago, former Milwaukee center Andrew Bogut got injured quite badly. After he finished a fast break play by slamming the ball hard, Bogut fell hard awkwardly. The fall dislocated his elbow, broke his hand, and sprained his wrist. That injury sidelined him for the rest of the season.
  • Jamal Crawford’s really bad fall. We’ve seen players jump up high and fall. However, the Bulls’
    Jamal Crawford had a really bad fall. As he tried to defend against a shooting player, he fell hard with his neck breaking his fall. Lucky for him, Crawford only suffered from a sprained neck and was released from the hospital the next day.
  • Knocked out Marquis Daniels. This has to be one of the scariest injuries that the NBA has seen. Daniels was trying to make a move down low when his head collided with another player. He then fell straight to the ground. The scary part is when Daniels laid there for a couple of minutes without any movement at all. After what seemed like an eternity, he finally moved and was brought to a hospital. Doctors said he suffered from a bruised spine.
  • The knock-out punch. In a scuffle in the game, Rudy Tomjanovich of the Houston Rockets tried to break the fight between his teammate Kevin Kunnert and the Lakers’ Kareem Abdul Jabbar and Kermit Washington. Washington, who saw Tomjanovich running, immediately hit the latter with a roundhouse punch. Tomjanovich suffered a broken skull, cerebral concussion, a broken jaw and nose, and leaked blood and spinal fluid into his skull capsule. Personal injury lawyers believe that Tomjanovich could have filed a complaint against Washington but the latter believed that this incident should just be forgotten.
  • Shaun Livingston’s bended knee. Okay, so what’s the big fuss about bended knees? Well, Shaun Livingston’s knee bended the opposite way knees should bend. This injury almost ended his career as he was sidelined for two years.

All-important games (like the Heat and the Spurs’ championship game later) can make players give everything they’ve got just to get the ring. A Los Angeles attorney however, reminded players that intentionally hurting another player should not be one of them.
