What would happen if he flexed his calf?

It would be like a crossbow

There is no way that is a freak accident, he must have had brittle bones or something. The way he landed it should have been his knee or ankle; this is highly unlikely.

If you have a pencil shaven down a tiny bit, it's damn near impossible to snap. But a brand new full-length pencil is much easier to break. The same physics applies to long legs. Tall lanky basketball players certainly have long legs. If you also take into account their heavyset weight and the force of coming down from that height, it's not as surprising seeing that his bone snapped.

Stress injuries in the legs, feet, and ankles are relatively common in basketball (though this is a statistical outlier in terms of severity).

By the way, for those brave enough or just interested in seeing a more gruesome (but still reasonably viewable) injury, here ya go: /watch?v=plvKlnguJVE
> Warning: Involves the severing of a major artery, where blood is seen spewing on a hockey rink for several seconds. If you're stomach-queasy or blood-repulsed, don't watch.

Surprisingly, player Clint Malarchuk was saved by a head trainer who sealed the severed artery with his bare fingers as soon as he got there, just plugged 'em in there. His decisiveness and knowledge ultimately saved the dude's life. Malarchuk eventually recovered and got out well. Not sure about the several reported heart attacks in the audience though...

He had a stress fracture and played anyway

so ******* gruesome. I'm kind of a person who can watch shock videos. But this is just.. whoa. He needs to drink more milk. haha

Isn't that what a freak accident is? Something highly unlikely happening?
User avatar #47 to #46 - smokedmeatlog (04/03/2013) [-]
Well if he had brittle bones than it wouldn't be that unlikely, would it? Oh, and I meant highly unlikely for someone without brittle bones; sorry for lack of specification. Its likely for someone with that.

No worries man, I understand! Just wanted to make sure we were on the same page. I agree, but nevertheless, this was horrible to watch happen.

That was the most gruesome and disgusting injury I have ever seen watching sports, I just couldn't.....STAND it

It didn't pop out or anything, x-ray's confirmed it. So my muscle took a trip to Oblivion.

WHY WOULD YOU PULL A 180
#18 to #17 - Lewx (04/03/2013) [-]
I DON'T KNOW.   
I'M NOT EVEN SURE IF THAT'S WHAT THE MANEUVER IS CALLED.   
I'M BAD WITH BASKETBALL TERMINOLOGY.

Why were you facing your basket?

that happened to me a few years ago when we played vollyball with these large all inflatable balls, I sprained my ankle pretty bad, and the hospital didnt give me **** . had to borrow some crutches from a friend for a few days. They did take x-rays though, it was just a terrible sprain, it still sprains and dislocates frequently

this sports injury is worse in my opinion

If you think about death, yeah. But visually? no, in my opinion Kevin's injury is worse.
User avatar #31 to #28 - hockeykicksass (04/03/2013) [-]
believe it or not he actually didnt die, he just came very close to it, he was playing again about a week later, but both injuries were brutal
#33 to #31 - napkinlover (04/03/2013) [-]
Hockey and basketball's atmosphere are crazily different though. And when this guy's leg decided to blow up, people in the stands were crying and throwing up. At a hockey game, the crowd would be chanting  "HACK THE BONE." So ya know, just bringing up that point.

People were vomiting at the Malarchuk incident too.
#90 to #33 - anon (04/05/2013) [-]
Don't tell me the audience took that Malarchuk incident well. There were several reported cases of fainting, vomiting, and heart attacks. Most people aren't numb to blood suddenly squirting out of a man's throat, especially if you were to witness it live in front of you.
User avatar #60 to #31 - killerliquid (04/03/2013) [-]
I know he didn't die. A guy (an EMT I think) quickly went to him to put pressure on his jugular to stop the bleeding.
User avatar #58 to #23 - hahahahahahah (04/03/2013) [-]
Agreed... Poor Malarchuk. Only us Buffalonians have this kind of luck. Pretty miraculous that he lived... Nice acquisition at the deadline in Mason, btw.
User avatar #88 to #58 - hockeykicksass (04/04/2013) [-]
i liked what they did at the deadline this year, which was pretty much nothing other than mason, its gonna be nice to have a backup that you could start a game or two and not throw the game away

the most sad thing about it is that guy he attempted to block still made the shot, so he snapped his leg for nothing.

Louisville still won though, so it wasn't all for nothing in the end
