He’d be the anti-GS offense
Nov 18th 2020

      In this Swamp Land you speak of could Wiggins drive the fan boat?
Nov 18th 2020

Nov 18th 2020
13
      It was the right decision.
Nov 18th 2020
16
Reports are coming that it may be a torn achilles.....
Nov 18th 2020
14

achilles confirmed: out for the year
Nov 19th 2020

Fuck. He's likely done for good.
Nov 19th 2020
32
I think he'll be able to recover
Nov 19th 2020
38
      He may.
Nov 19th 2020
42
      Fam this isn't about him proving anything
Nov 19th 2020
43
Damn man......
Nov 19th 2020
33
Well, that officially fucking sucks.
Nov 19th 2020
34

Nov 19th 2020
35
Bruh. I'm hurt over this one
Nov 19th 2020
36
the difference is regardless if he can move the same KD is still...
Nov 19th 2020
39
      but, when has Kev ever been a stand in the corner...
Nov 19th 2020
40
           I get all that I'm just saying I think his margin for recovery is a lot....
Nov 19th 2020
44
                you right, we don't really know....
Nov 19th 2020
52
                     right I just feel like KD at 85% is still at least 2011 Dirk
Nov 19th 2020
54
wow...
Nov 19th 2020
37
is it just me, or are there more achilles tears than ever?
Nov 19th 2020

           goodness...
Nov 19th 2020
51
                an ACL tear used to be a similar, career-ender. Not anymore
Nov 19th 2020
55
Out of curiosity
Nov 19th 2020
45
The word was, yes, he was recovering
Nov 19th 2020
48
does the training staff take heat for this?
Nov 19th 2020
50
You know I thought about this too
Nov 19th 2020
60
      idk
Nov 20th 2020
61
Woj also said that Klay was told he can expect to make a full recovery
Nov 19th 2020
53
That's great news if true.....
Nov 19th 2020
56
I had a full rupture 3 yrs ago...
Nov 19th 2020
58
don't almost always say that?
Nov 19th 2020
57
I think it’s a semantics game.
Nov 20th 2020

I know he was fine enough during a lost season, but he’s been bad his entire NBA career. Zero trust in him.

I'm somewhere around stage 3 right now. cuz forreal, FUCK THIS. Maybe it's not that bad? It wasn't the leg he injured last year, i heard. maybe that's a good sign. But this is BULLSHIT!!!


Shock and denial. This is a state of disbelief and numbed feelings.
Pain and guilt.
Anger and bargaining.
Depression.
The upward turn.
Reconstruction and working through.
Acceptance and hope.

They're trying to be the Spurs, and build for the long term. Panicking and picking someone who wasn't in their plans or they thought won't fit in would have been a mistake.

TBH the fact that you're even a mod here fits squarely within Jag's narrative of OK-sanctioned aggression, bullying, and toxicity. *shrug*

In response to Reply # 32


  

          

His defense might not be as good, but he's always been a catch and shoot player, so I don't think that will go away.

Regardless, he doesn't have anything to prove to anyone.

And agreed - if his career ended tomorrow, a 3x champ, 5x all star, one of the best shooters of all time, 2x third team, etc is not only an incredible career but also one that was FAR beyond what was expected of Klay. And he's not a slasher like Derrick Rose, but his defense will suffer and he'll be slower. Still a knockdown shooter, and still a valuable piece if he can stay healthy, but it won't be the same with 2 years off, coming back at 31-32 years old, plus just the mental hurdles he'll have to go through. It's so sad.

His legacy as a champion, an all time great shooter, an all time great two-way player, all that shit is secure.

This is about wanting to see him continue his career in peak form. This still renders an incomplete picture.

I hate seeing cats get cut off in their prime.

Klay isn't gonna be the same after this. Warriors are kinda done for the forseeable future if not for good. We'll see. But man. I have never seen injuries ravage a contender like this.

and wait for the kickout shooter? One of the things that's so terrifying about him is that he's that tall with handles. He usually sets his jumpers up with a couple of bounces and then pulls up and no one on Earth can block his shot.

I saw some video of KD dribbling and shooting and he looked cool...but, that was on a court by himself. Who knows what he will look like in the heat of an actual game with defenders on him.

seriously asking.

when i was younger, i didn't pay as much attention to injuries, so i don't know if it's always been there and i was just uninformed or what.

but lately? seems like so many achilles tears.

used to feel like it was rare...like one a year.

I mean in the last 6-7 years we've had: Kobe, Durant, Klay, Boogie - and that's just the star tier. Then there's Wes Matthews, Rudy Gay, Rodney Hood, etc. It just doesn't feel like this is happening at the frequency we're used to, AND to younger players too.

In response to Reply # 51


  

          

That's a part of the reason it's gonna be so important to see how KD fairs. Boogie was different because he just carries so much weight. But if KD can be old KD, then Klay might be able to do the same. Hopefully with new medical treatments, these can be set backs but not career enders moving forward.

In response to Reply # 50


  

          

Especially in light of KD's injury and Boogie's problems.

Klay's recovery seemed slower than expected. Even in their brief mini-bubble training camp, some of the staff seemed let down by Klay's progress. They maybe thought he would have been back near his peak by then.

Is some of that because of the training staff? Or could Klay's body simply have needed more time to heal than many athletes coming off an ACL?

I struggle to blame training staffs for these freak injuries. Especially given how much mileage Klay and the rest of the team had over the previous five years. Not everyone is LeBron and even he's good for taking 5-10 games off a year.

KD's and Klay's injuries were severe and career-altering but given how few injuries the team had over their run and the volume of games they played, the staff did reasonably well, I suppose.

I partially tore my achilles about 7 years ago. I was on unemployment at the time and took a bad step going down some stairs. Needless to say I didn't get the "proper" medical attention. It healed but I still feel a little tweak every now and then.

Klay should be fine if it wasn't a rupture.

Got the surgery, did the PT and I'm still fairly certain that I'll never be the same.

Now, I'm not a world class athlete with the resources of a pro franchise behind me. Not even close.

But it's a devastating injury (physically & mentally), ain't it?

I've been rooting against Golden St. since their rise but I have the utmost respect for Klay & his game. I hope he can make a comeback.

To me, fully recovered says the injury will heal after surgery. Not that he’ll be the guy he was pre injury.

Healing doesn’t take as long in most cases. The rehab with strengthening and flexion are what typically take forever.

Y'all buy those labels, I was born supreme
