    This is the same PG that literally broke his leg almost a decade ago. If anyone can recover from this knee injury, i bet Paull George can. This guy is a warrior

      seriustraco 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +5

      Unfortunately PG was just caught up in the bad karma surrounding the Clippers, especially Kawhi, when he purposely entertained the idea of signing with the lakers knowing they would wait on him at the deadline and miss out on a lot of signings. He did that so they would be weakened and the Clippers would have a better chance, thats why lakers won a ring and clipper never will. Karma is like ghat

      We don’t need mvp russ .. but the russ that averages 6-8 assists..
      I hope pg takes his time to come back, no hurries.. we still got a KAWHI.
      And our roster is way better than it was last year.

    Giannis actually only missed one or two games in that series after that hypertension. That injury is one of the more mild yet scariest looking. So hopefully that’s the case here. Great info Doc.

    • Nick C.
      Nick C. 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +6

      It's most definitely not . Giannis was more than lucky + he is built different and he had no clean injury history up until this point . I hyperextended my knee and destroyed every ligament . You really have no idea how serious this injury could potentially be ( career ending ) . Giannis in a past interview told that he took him 2 months to run or jump after the finals .

    • Vimal Murthy
      Vimal Murthy 2 หลายเดือนก่อน

      @Nick C. I agree that the Giannis' knee injury could have been far worse, but there is no reason just yet to assume the worst for Paul George. I saw Paul Pierce carried off the court in game1 of the 2008 NBA finals...any Laker fan can tell you how that turned out

    I had the same thing happend to me at age 14, playing football, knee extended al the way back there, horrific feeling and insane amount of pain. Took me out the game for a full year, never was the same after that. My prayers go to PG.

  • just_matt
    just_matt 2 หลายเดือนก่อน

    I hyperextended my knee a few years ago, getting out of a pool during a swim meet. It was a minor hyperextension compared to these players, but it was still the most pain I've ever felt. I couldn't walk for 3 days. I wish him the best.

    As a Lakers fan who hates the Clippers, and who used to make fun of Paul George when everyone else did, I pray for his recovery. I've really come to appreciate his game and him as a person, and I wouldn't wish this on my worst enemy. It's unfortunate this happened in the same game that he did a 360 dunk that was arguably the dunk of the Year. I hope he gets better. Prayers up.

  • David Falterman
    David Falterman 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +32

    One thing I always appreciate about your videos Doc is how you never name the player the injured player came in contact with. Of course any reasonable sports fan knows there’s no intent to harm or anything, but keeping their name out of the discussion is a nice courtesy to show that there wasn’t intent or malice-just a part of the game.

    • ItsGamingFancy

  • Gurren Gougo
    Gurren Gougo 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +4

    It's also worth noting, in addition to the factors already discussed, that some people naturally have more or less amount of natural hyperextension in their knees, which I'm sure plays a role in the severity of an injury like this.

    • Loverofhumanity
      Loverofhumanity 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +3

      I agree. This is one of those injuries that usually looks worse than it is. The knee is very tough in that direction. The way it bent inward instead of side to side usually means it's not that bad. Its side to side movement that is typically a bad indicator from my experience. However, because it's the NBA I assume they'll take precautions so wouldn't be surprised if regardless of the severity he misses rest of season + playoffs.

    Hoping for his recovery. It’s sad to see players getting injured. I get that it’s part of the game, but it’s just sad.
    A part of me thinks that there’s a difference on this PG injury vs the Giannis injury and that is there was an outside force (Dort’s leg) that prevented the knee from bending forward/forced the leg to buckle and bend backwards.
    With Giannis, it was mostly about his positioning on that landing, the was no outside force.

    I hate defenders like that. If you’re landing and you widen your base with people around, you’ll either hurt yourself or hurt someone else. If everyone lands squarely without spreading their legs, there would be no injury like this.

    I just did my research and had to deep dive into his last big injury this was his surgically repaired leg. Now i may not be qualified to mention that but it coupd have something to do with the seriousness of his current injury. Could impact him now and moving forward. Hopefully he will be okay and recover over time but that leg snapped and its the same exact leg that broke from 2014.

    • Cameron No
      Cameron No 2 หลายเดือนก่อน

      Same leg. Different areas and weight-bearing mechanics. The lower leg snapped in the past. This injury centers at the knee. Both freak injuries but completely independent. The lower leg did what it was supposed to do here (provide support for the knee). The knee served as the fulcrum as the Dr explained. Further, bone healing is constant but about 80 percent of expected healing occurs over three first few months. Continued healing occurs over years. Either way, this is far enough out to unlikely be an issue even in the same area of the initial injury. Just fyi. No judgement, and good consideration in your part.

  • James
    James 2 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

    The worst case is this injury is similar to Shaun Livingston’s and he’s has a multi ligament damage; tearing his acl and pcl and possibly a femur or tibia fracture/break. The best case, he has a severe hyper extension and/or just has one of: acl or pcl is damaged or torn. Either way he’ll be out for the season, given the amount of games they have left.

    Nice work, Doctor. Yours is the type of niche channel that showcases TH-cam's true value.

    Actually tore my ACL the same mechanism off a severe hyperextension caused by contact the same way dort short-tracked PG from landing normally. Obviously unintentional and hope it isn’t as bad as it looks. If it is hoping for a great recovery with no roadblocks

    What I find weird, is that I’ve only ever seen athletic, thinner guys and gals have this happen. You’d think that larger athletes would hyper extend more. And I am a big guy and played pickup basketball a lot. But I’ve never seen a larger person have this happen. Which I find so weird because of the amount of weight that is coming down onto the joint.

    Can't big/strong muscles around the knee compensate for the ligaments almost entirely? My trainer was saying some new research is exploring the possibility that the knee ligaments aren't even needed for sports.
    It makes sense Giannis' knee held up better than anyone else's would, because his legs are strong. I could imagine PG coming back from this soon.

    Made me think of the injury Giannis against the Hawks. The Clippers will be lucky if PG can come back in that same timeframe. But, he's older and had that shattered knee with Team USA on that same leg, I believe.

      He didn't shatter his knee on Team USA, he had a compound fracture

      @Jay Curry true. I guess I was thinking I saw in the press that a doctor that looked at him described it as a leg injury you see in a car crash. It was the lower leg not the knee

    hate to see PG go through another serious injury. It def reminded me of Giannis hyperextension injury and also hope he has a similar recovery.

    The same thing happen to Giannis at play off a couple of years ago, he missed a couple of games or something and manage to come back.

    Hi There Doc! Creepy the injurie of George! Hope the recovering time be like Giannis`. Why don`t you make some videos about incidents on soccer focused on #MLS and #LigaMX. There`s a good number of people interested on such injuries. Enjoy your videos, really didactic! Saludos!

    When someone lunges at you, shove them to the ground or you end up like Paul George. It’s better to get a tech than lose a knee

    I could only watch the Paul George injury once --ONCE. Then I have to turn my head every time they show it because I know what happens. The only hope I see for PG (and the Clippers) is that this injury is similar to Giannis'. I thought Giannis was done for the playoffs, and he came back from that injury quite soon.
