re: Before and after Achilles injuries in the NBA
Are those all of the Achilles injuries to prominent players?

And is that VORP in the subsequent year or for the rest of their career?

Why are they overlooking Stanley Roberts Achilles tear in 1994 with the Clippers ?

re: Before and after Achilles injuries in the NBA
There are no real examples of a player like KD with this injury. I tend to think he'll always be able to shoot well, even if he misses a step, but you just never know.

KD can still play 8 more years in the league if he wants to. Even if he’s a complete statue out there, he’ll be able to shoot over any defender. It’ll look like Dirk basically

His game doesn't really rely on explosiveness. I tend to think he will be pretty close to the same player when he gets back. Still a risk, though.

I feel bad laughing at the Elton Brand. I expected to see something like that for Isiah.
