Wow. Has the guy turned into Sam Bowie already???


Seriously though, talk about a kid who went pro at the right time. Imagine if he waited another year. With these injuries, he may never have been #1

It's microfracture surgery, the worst knee surgery. It takes about 18 months to get back to full strength and people are usually never the same.

As A Knicks fan hearing the word micro fracture surgery brings two words to my mind... Allen Houston.

Would the Blazers really draft Mayo? That would seem like a return to the Jailblazers days.

Amare has half the explosiveness he had before the surgery though. Great player, not the player he was.
