Former NBA star Ray Allen suffered some bad injuries in a bicycle crash over the weekend, sharing the scary details of the incident on Instagram...
quote:

Yesterday as I approached the end of my bike ride, I was cruising through my neighborhood and a car pulled up slowly behind me. I sped up to get out of the way. As I looked back behind me, the car was gone, but, the minute I turned my head back to what was in front of me, it was too late. I ran over a tree branch that was in the road and my front wheel went haywire and threw me from the bike. I landed on my face, shoulder and hip. i got up immediately and walked about 100 yards back to my house in shock. When I got into the house I lost my breath and almost passed out. My wife immediately took me to the hospital to make sure that I didn’t have any internal bleeding. Had my vitals checked and a few X-rays taken and all was ok. Thank God for my helmet because as you can see in the picture my head hit the ground and I didn’t even realize it. I wasn’t riding fast at all but the ground still took its toll. When you’re riding you can’t take your eyes off the road because something bad could happen! My helmet saved me from a far worse fate. I didn’t want to post this at first because no one wants to show their missteps in life, but as you get older, you learn that life isn’t always about being cool or perfect. It is ok to be vulnerable! More importantly, I had to post this as a reminder for everyone to please wear your helmets when you ride! #scarstoyourbeautiful #wefalldownbutwegetup #whenyoufallgetbackup #helmetsafety #ouch #scarstellyourstory

The video of him busting his arse would probably be funny as hell. People crashing bicycles always are.

The close-up of the finger pulse monitor is a bit much.

Hope they checked that AC joint!

I expected to see his helmet destroyed -- it's only got some light scratches. No fun falling off a bike, but this is hugely overblown.

Same. I love the dramatic pics.

My kid has done worse in the driveway, and walked it off with a popsicle.
