Hold That said:
I still think it will take years away, since the injury is still new he can probably tolerate it 3 more seasons, but I wouldn't be surprised that anything after that it would become unbearable. 82 games, with practices and then off season work outs, it's going to take it's toll. Different from a person who probably played in minor leagues, and small pick up games like yourself, from a person who's lively hood is basketball, and plays it so much through out the year.
I can't see him playing much longer than that anyway if he even plays that long. Dude's body is breaking down.
