Thread: David West suffers knee injury, taken off in wheelchair

    Either way, I don't know why you guys are arguing that much about it. IMO I don't think we can take the risk on him now unless we are 100% sure he has a clean bill of health or he concedes some money when signing with us.

    We can all agree that it sucks for him and the Hornets though.

    Well thats 2 signs of old age creeping up on West. First his back problems and now he blows out a knee. I think i'll pass on him now.
    Yeah, pacer4ever really started showing his age creeping up on him when he dislocated his knee, too.

    This could happen to anybody.

    It doesn't have to do with age.

    Your original post makes it sound like he blew out his knee because he is 30 and not 24. Thats why people are calling you out.
    Oh please, so you all deny that being 30 years old doesn't increase his chances of blowing out a knee?

    I'm nearly 30 myself and while I'm physically stronger than I ever have been in my life. I can definitely feel the wear and tear on my bones just from playing basketball since I was 9-10 years old. I can't go as hard as my 20 year old self thats for sure. I've twisted my ankles more times than I can remember and that makes me even more prone to twisting them in the future. Heck just last year I jumped off the front porch and strained my MCL. Didn't even know I did it until the next day. I've jumped off that porch daily for the last 3 years.

    Hey look! We all have examples that prove our point now!

    Everyone in the NBA plays hurt. Whether its a nagging tendinitis or lower back strain like Foster. Thats why you see half the players in the leauge wearing ice packs while sitting on the bench. All your examples are of young players. West is 30 years old. You can't compare the 2. He is gonna take longer to recover than a player 10 years younger than he.
    Grant Hill. I rest my case.

    It could just be dislocated. Thats how i dislocated mine it just gave out and i thought i tore my ACL. Luckly i didnt but ethier way it is bad hope it is just dislocated.
    I bruised my knee when I came down hard diving for a loose ball once and that was the worst feeling.

    Any type of knee pain is the worst because you can't walk on it or bend your leg at all.

    Well sure I never said it couldn't happen to anybody regardless of age. What I have been saying is that West being 30 and blowing out his knee is a sign that his body is wearing down.

    Look its common sense, older bones are more fragile than younger ones.

    ya i couldnt walk on it for a few weeks. The doctor cleared me to play again after 2 months of rehabing. It happened again the very next time i played. The doctor said i have shallow knee caps so they fall out of place easy. So now I have to wear a brace if i want to hoop and it isnt the same i dont know if it will ever be 100% again.

    No one even confirmed that he blew out his knee.

    When you blow out your knee, that's another term for tearing a ligament which is a whole different story than just having a sore knee and being listed as day-to-day.

    He's only 30 and still has a good body and is still a solid big man.

    What about Grant Hill. He missed practically 4 seasons of basketball. Dropping some names of a few players doesn't prove anything. Older bones are more prone to injury than younger bones.

    So Amare blowing his knee out was a sign his body was breaking down at just 22? Surley not he has been fine ever since. that just doesnt make sense to me.

    I don't get why you guys are all jumping on his case so hard, this is stupid. In my mind it is like this:

    "Oh ****, this guy blew his knee out that isn't good...he's 30?? We should probably stay away from signing him long-term."

    He is just saying he is more at risk for further injury because he is older. Makes sense to me.

    Wrong. He sat for 4 seasons. Grant Hill proves it doesn't have to do with age. Sitting for 4 seasons and then coming back and has yet to bite another knee injury. How many games did he miss last year? This year? I rest my case. And don't take it so personal.

    But thats not what he is saying. He's saying that he blew his knee out because he's 30. Sure being older you are more at risk for injuries, but not blowing your knee out type injuries as they are the result of a freak accident.

    Also he keeps saying old bones, when blowing out you knee doesn't involve the bones, its ligaments.

    I would be willing to bet that blowing out your knee is a much more common injury for younger players than older players.

    Ever heard that exceptions are not the rule?

    What does not make sense to me is that you think "freak injuries" are not influenced by age. you seem to think that because you can name some young players that have blown their knee that it must mean that everyone has the same chances to doing so. I'm simply saying being 30 years old makes one more prone to do so.

    At the rate Hansbrough is hitting his midrange jumper, did we really want West anyways?

    Still, you never want to see anyone get hurt like that, and I wish him the best recovery.

    Idk, either way having a knee injury at age 30 isn't good for your near future. And when you are that old in the NBA, you typically don't last too much longer.

    Why don't we discuss the impact this injury could have on the Hornets, the playoff race, or what team he will be with in the future instead???

    Please quote where I said he blew out his knew because he is 30. I did not say this. I did not even infer this. You are not reading correctly.

    I merely said that his body has begun showing signs of wearing down now that he has blown his knee along with his ailing back. A 30 year old man is going to recover from these much slower and be more prone to have repeat injury issues.

    Sweet response, but that is more basketball related than talking about age and how if effects getting injured. Why don't you post something worthwhile instead?

    That was worthwhile. Seriously, no one is worried about the Hornets. They are a low level playoff team in the West that has no shot of making the Finals or dealing with the Pacers in any capacity. David West has been mentioned around here ad nauseum in regards to free agency and the possibility of him signing with us. As Pacer fans, it makes much more sense for us to ponder his free agency future than the effect it has on the Hornets, who weren't going to make a deep playoff run with or without him.
