The only other guys in KD's tier talent wise that had this injury was Nique and Kobe. Nique bounced back and Kobe was 34 with a ton of mileage and other injuries.

KD is a unicorn. The same rules don't apply to him. He'll be back.
dont work like that..

I said this before kd got injured. To me he’s the only player that could get injured and still dominate the league. Dude 6’11 he really don’t need to be that explosive. All he needs to do is find his spot. And he’ll have enough lift to still be able to score on anybody.

Another user alerted me to Nique being only player to ever really recover....yeah Durant built like very few are with a game to match it, but the odds are not on his favor....not to mention this is a damn tendon & not a bone just rehealing itself.

Best case scenario look like he won't be back (wherever he go, which now gonna make FA even more interesting til All star Break at the EARLIEST....that's a long a*s time)

The upside to him, at least we know he ain't gonna gain no type of weight, so should help being that he got a naturally slim frame. Only time will tell

Still has to get up & down court...has to play some type of defense...will have to develop into catch & shoot type player. Cause even with his length, without that explosiveness (albeit he wasn't very explosive) it will change the way he plays.

Take a player like Greek Freak....he will NOT be able to score on him like that. Maybe if this was 2000, but this a new age in basketball. Plus he has never suffered seriots injury, this gonna fu*k with even the best mental when they resume. That's why it's not a good idea to rush players back to normal just cause theyre 'healed' (see Gordon)

This is why its tough to break that Kareem's scoring record.....a lot of things have to go your way as a bonafide scorer!
I been said that. Its impossible, because mf's get injured and washed before they even get close! Bron may not be able to do it either!

Basically what we saw in game 5 before the injury. This.
Yeah, he was basically on his way to 30 points swishing 3s still injured with no type of brace/sleeve on that ankle. Once he tried to move laterally pass Ibaka, his bum achilles gave out. Still worth the risk as a max guy.

KD is 6-11 with a 7-5 wingspan. His game was never reliant on explosion or even physicality.

As long as he can run and jump relative to before, he'll be fine. Don't expect much lateral movement on defense from him tho.
His scoring off the dribble came from explosion

Shouldve did all athletes. Hell NFL players would literally rather have a neck or back injury than an Achilles injury.

Before the injury: Jennings had played for Detroit and Milwaukee as a backup point guard and may have been headed out of the league anyway.

Yea that was cold coulda at least brought up the 50 piece.

KD will be damn near 33 when he’s ready to come back fully and n*ggas talking about: He’ll be just fine” The days of KD being “KD” are over. The thing that made KD special was the ability to take defenders off the dribble at 7 feet. There’s plenty of tall n*ggas in the league that can shoot.

the good thing is kd is knock down shooter. i dont expect him to be 100% ever again but i think he will still be one of the best players in the league when he returns

How can one prevent that? That sounds like a straight up curse.


I feel bad for KD, at least he got two rings though but damn.

Never had elite bounce he was just agile for a 7 footer.
I shouldíve said explosion. He has a always had a quick first step & pop when attacking the basket & finishing at the basket. Just like Giannis it doesnít look as impressive on TV because heís so tall & long. If thatís gone then I donít know what to tell you but the guy averaging 27 PPG for his career wouldnít be there.

Thatís not getting it done when not on the court with 3 All Stars & getting double teamed.

But on topic

I think this would be a good time for him to transition to a Dirk Nowitzki type game

He damn near 7 feet he could do that easily
Nowitsky worked specifically on that fadeaway since he was in his teens.

It took him many years to master that. You don't switch over to it easily, and be like Dirk.

Good news is that people will now probably put some respect on KD's rings.
