I don't remember seeing this, but Lin ruptured a patella tendon and is done for the year.  This changes my outlook a bit on the Nets being better and the pick for Cleveland not being as good. 

Thoughts and merge if thread already created, I didn't see it.

Yep, that's bad, guy can't catch a break with injuries lately. I wouldn't wish this on LBJ. These guys work hard and risk their bodies for this, it's sad to see their seasons cut short because of injuries.
It takes me 3hrs to get to Miami and 1hr to get to Orlando... but I *SPIT* on their NBA teams! "Bless God and bless the (Celts)"-Lady GaGa (she said gays but she really meant Celts)

so many injuries on just the first two days of the NBA

has anyone really came back from a ruptured tendon, I remember Kobe ruptured his Achilles tendon, and he hasn't really been the same after that.

Would this be career ending for Lin?

Probably wonít be career-ending:

Quote
Immediate surgical repair of the ruptured patella tendon is recommended for optimal return of function. Outcome after repair is closely related to the length of time between injury and repair. If the tendon is repaired immediately, most patients experience nearly full return of knee motion, quadriceps strength, and preinjury activity levels. [22, 23, 24, 25]  Persistent quadriceps atrophy is common but is not considered a complication, as the atrophy does not prevent the return of strength.
Reasonable function can be obtained in most individuals, especially in the acute tendon rupture that is repaired immediately. Multiple authors have attributed an earlier return to preinjury activity to a more aggressive rehabilitation program with an emphasis on earlier range of motion. [26, 27, 28, 29]
Because of the relative infrequency of patellar tendon rupture, the sample sizes in all the studies are rather small, and a meta-analysis has yet to be performed to further delineate the statistical significance of an aggressive rehabilitative protocol. Nonetheless, there appears to be a definite trend toward aggressive postoperative rehabilitation for earlier return to preinjury activity, much like that observed with the repaired Achilles tendon.

I would certainly expect him to exercise his option next year, however.

Not a career-ender, but he's not going to be the same.
Thank you, Isaiah!!!

Oh man this sucks for J.Lin, dude is a class act.

They were quick to take Lin out for the year, but have they shut down Hayward yet? If not there's a legitimate chance he's back before year's end no?

I agree. I loved the way he responded to Kenyon Martin recently. Definitely a class act.

Lin was pretty wild during that short stretch with the Knicks, then fell back to earth as a pretty avg NBA point guard. Still, he's made quite a career for a NBA player from Harvard (quasi D1, prob more like D2).

And whatever they could have gotten for him wouldnít have made a difference anyway.
