    NBA General Discussion Thread 2017

    What a gruesome way for the Celtics to start the season. Poor Hayward.
    Just be you. You is enough. - K, 4/5/10, 0:13.8 to play, 60-59 Duke.

    Man, how quickly a season can potentially change.

    Is 6 minutes into a season the shortest a sports championship contention has ever lasted?

    It will accelerate Tatum and Brown's development. Plus, if it is just a break and not ligament damage, he could be back in 4 months or so (I could be wildly wrong about this), just in time for him to play the final 6 weeks or so of the regular season and still make a playoff run.

    I'm being as optimistic as possible. Really feel for the Celtics on this one. Dude played all of 6 minutes for you... horrible.

    Why are you wasting time here when you could be wasting it by listening to the latest episode of the DBR Podcast?

    Did you see it? Gruesome. Gruesome. Gruesome. I hope his career isnít over. I canít imagine what it will take just to put his ankle back together but Iíll be surprised if it doesnít involve lots of plates and screws.

    Bummer on so many levels. Would have been interesting to see that team develop over the season.

    I don't care at all for the Celtics and fake hate their fans and Boston fans in general, but I feel for them on this one too. I would imagine they were pretty hyped about this season, and then six minutes in that's taken away from them. Now you have to wait a year (probably) to see Hayward play and you probably have no realistic shot at contending. A whole year of watching games with an eye towards contending...gone. Just like that.

    I feel bad for the NBA too. Who can realistically challenge the Cavs in the East?

    It was nasty looking but probably less gruesome than Paul Georgeís injury, hopefully Hayward can also make a complete come back however long the recovery takes!

    I just rewatched the Kevin Ware injury since he's now trending on Twitter because of course he is. Jesus. Time made me forget how nasty that was.

    It's the Denver Omelet curse. That's what I had for breakfast this morning, and that's what caused Hayward's injury. Me eating a Denver omelet. The Denver Omelet curse.

    I really hate that Gordon got hurt. I haven't seen the injury, hope I never do. I can still see the Ware and George injuries. Some things you can't un-see.

    Brown and Tatum both looked solid. Brown was impressive and may be a better defender than Hayward. He has a good looking 3-point shot. The key is consistency but Brown is going to be called on now.

    Brown looked spectacular! Heís certainly a better defender than Hayward. However, heís very much a 3nD player right now. Hope he develops more of a driving game.

    Tatum looked good but clearly a rookie. He got lost on D a bunch of times and both Lebron and Crowder went after him hard. Tatum is weirdly long. Donít remember him being that lanky in college

    I hope Dr. Mark Myerson is still practicing and available. He was The best at feet and ankles.

    I only caught some of the game but wasn't Brown the primary defender of Lebron?

    Dislocated ankle and fractured tibia, says Brad Stevens. Yuck. No fun...

    But also reports of no ligament damage. Hard to know if they know (and release) everything this quickly...
