Erik Karlsson, defenseman from the Ottawa Senators got his Achilles sliced with a hockey skate in February is already back on skates and looking smooth. Not near game level yet, but they say he'll be back in 3-4 weeks, meaning he missed what, 3-4 months total? They're getting way better at dealing with this injury.

LMFAO what a terrible analogy. Beckham had just finished a season from the MLS and was on loan at Milan for another 2-3 months, including playing in the Champions League (top level club International tournament). Football (I won't even call it Soccer for any American), a full contact sport, that requires athletes to run 90mins PER MATCH, with 45 min halves and only 15min rest, and you think Kobe puts in as much work as footballers?

As much as I would love to respect Basketball and I sure think they def put in hard hard work, not even closely comparable sir!
True and I'm not even a Beckham fan

dominique wilkins came back from the same injury and put down 28ppg
Also we are in 2013 that has better medical treatment than 1992. There are some positive things to look forward to in regards of Kobe coming back and still being a top 10 player in this league. I do think his days of being in the top 5 are finished though.

Best example of a top NBA star with this injury coming back strong was Dominique Wilkins. He tore his achilles in 1992 at age 32 and came back the very next season and was scoring 29ppg having his best PER of his career.

If this is what k!lls careers in Basketball or becomes this huge calamity, you guys should see the injuries footballers get, playing with dislocated shoulders (Frans Beckenbauer), broken legs (Djibril Cisse), or even the infamous Roy Keane injury. Torn achilles heels (and usually ligaments that hold joints together) used to be pretty common (that's why bans can result from tackles from behind now).

With all due respect ppl r diff, Kobe could make a quick comeback, with specialists he could be in tip top shape again, Ronaldo came back from bad knees and became a World Cup top goal scorer, age is Kobe's worst enemy at this point, not the extent of the injury

if that was a sarcastic question which it seems to be, don't be an idiot.

if we're talking top leagues like the epl, la liga, serie a, bundesliga.. around 38 league games.. even mid tier leagues are in the 30's.

that's not including teams that qualify for champions league. got your fa cup, euro league, etc. you've also got friendlies (pre-season + world), dudes can play upwards of 50+ matches a year.. at 90 minutes a game (some get subbed, but they still play more than an NBA player, even if they get subbed at the half).

don't be that daft american that makes us all look stupid and as if we all look down on football. the nba is fu*kin watered down anyways, who gives a fu*k if they play 82 games at 36 minutes a night of 'don't breath on me or send me to the line' ball. you even look at somebody wrong and the officials come down on you. the worst thing about football is the flopping, but that sh*t is peanuts compared to what we have to deal with.
I legitimately did not know how many soccer games are played a year, that's why I asked. That makes me an idiot? I don't follow soccer.

I get your point about everything else (except for the highlighted part) but people k!ll me when they make it seem like soccer is an American word for the sport. You do realize the term soccer is short for a.ssociation football right (and that English muthafu*kas came up with the term)?

even in south africa it's widely called soccer, No one said Americans invented the word, they popularized it and the English still called the sport football to this day. Btw reason it's called soccer in south africa is due to many south african players having played in the old American NASL, which influenced How clubs were named and the sport perceived by blacks under the Apartheid regime. E.g. Jomo Cosmos taking part of it's name from the legendary New York Cosmos team, Kaizer Chiefs from Atlanta Chiefs.

That was a statement meant more for ignorant Americans (as seen in above statements) who know nothing about football and would have a.ssumed I'm talking about American Football. Btw have a huge amount of respect for the MLS and were they are today, sadly most Americans don't for their own league.

btw my point was to keep on topic with the thread starter. Beckham till today still plays top level football back in Europe even after that injury. Won 2 MLS titles and could still play another season next yr, and still plays in a more demanding sport than Kobe. Kobe will be fine! He is not the first. His Biggest enemy would be How his own body reacts to the injury, i.e. Age, than guaranteed loss of form just because a ligament torn

I agree with everything you said EXCEPT you saying Futebol is a full contact sport. You are not aloud to body check or tackle ... only sweep for the ball. No intent to gain an advantage over the other team by using physical force. Contact sports. (hockey,football, mma etc. ) and futebol players are probably some of the pussiest people on the planet.

I was with you until you decided to pull out the pus*y card, and in the world at that?

you could have even said most players are soft and I would have agreed with you, but don't say stupid sh*t like that and not expect a rebuttal, because if you wanna talk about pus*y in SPORTS, and not the world.. the sport of golf and tennis would like to have a word with you..

and I noticed you left out the NBA as far as full contact goes
