1. "fatigue exposes underlying issues" In response to Reply # 0 Sun Apr-14-13 09:42 PM by 3xKrazy
when you move like shit (or less than optimal), you'll move a lot shittier when fatigue sets in as your body strives to be more efficient. in addition to stamina/fatigue i'd add strength as another variable. if you're not strong enough to hold an ideal position then you move closer to injury threshold.
i think more injuries are preventable than many people realize. just my opinion though.

now when he got hurt in Atlanta that was like a warning, however in the game friday night against the warriors he had some serious crashes that it almost seemed certain something was going to go down.
the body taken that kind of beating and all of that movement isn't meant for that kind of punishment. now Kobe is physically fit and takes great care of himself, etc.. however that is a freakish accident and he turned one time too many.
i do feel he played too much and needed to pace himself. i do feel they ran him into the ground.
you gotta balance out minutes.

4. "Non contact injuries are almost always overuse" In response to Reply # 0
or the person has muscle or posture imbalances/weaknesses that at some point are just going to break down. Kobe appears to be more along the lines of overuse/being old/lack of recovery. A person having bad movement patterns(Nadal in tennis, Strasberg in baseball, and tons of other pitchers) also make injury much more likely.
10. "Overuse is absolutely true when it comes to tendons " In response to Reply # 4
If you simply look at the most common injury among athletes w/ high mileages in a non-contact sport such as Track & Field.....99% of the time it's some type of tendon related injury (i.e. hamstrings). It's as if when they hit 30, they all of a sudden start pulling out of races w/ a strained hamstring. The tendons just basically wear out like a break pad but our body doesn't repair it as efficiently as we age.

unless he had tendonitis or was playing through a specific ankle condition.
Funny thing is that ruptured achilles injuries usually happen in the beginning of the season or training camp cause it tends to happen when theres a sudden increase in activity that the tendon was not prepared for. Other than that, is when there is tendonitis or the tendon just snaps on some freak tip.
-The Knicks’ coaching search still includes a lone frontrunner, Kurt Rambis, whose qualifications for the position include a strong relationship with Jackson and a willingness to take the job.
