Video: Baron Davis Leaves Game 4 With Knee Injury

Davis’ right knee buckled on the break.

The Knicks lost Baron Davis for the rest of the series when BDiddy suffered a dislocated kneecap in the third quarter. Careful watching the video if you’re squeamish… Davis’ career may be over, but he helped New York survive with an 89-87 Game 4 victory.

    hope he gets well soon. the business decision to make it a 66 games in such a short time span was an idea of idiots. so much greed to sell as many tickets n tv rights as possible but now one “product” after another goes down and maybe the league lost its new darlin (rose) n never gets him back as the player he was. slow clap @ stern & co

  • Lan

    A temporary stepback for Stern & co, there’s always another superstar-to-be out there.

  • dan

    just doesnt really improve their image. theyd deserve to spent as much time in a wheel chair as anyone who went down this season. greed is definitely NOT good

  • What

    ouch, hope he comes back strong..

    Yeah, David Stern’s claim that the compressed schedule has nothing to do with injuries looks more and more believable every day. Can’t believe he can say that with a straight face. SMH.

    The NBA’s compressed schedule is defiinitely hurting their brand. I can’t remembered the first round of playoffs ever being so uninspiring. Even besides the injuries, you can tell that the season has an effect on the quality of play in the playoffs. Games have been weak thus far.

    However the players also are culpable. The more games they miss the lower their salary for the year, thus very few would have voted for an even shortere season. Players are just as business minded as the owners, and the season’s lenght isn’t entirely Stern’s fault. Would be interesting to see a study which looks at the effect of a shorter season, on prolonging careers and the benefit (if any) for players money wise of prolonging careers, however earning less per season (due to compressed schedule)

    Damn, anybody that tries to dispute the rigorousness of this schedule is foolish, so many severe injuries.

    Baron was never on a really good team, let alone great team. He’s had a couple good teams, but that’s it. And that sucks.

    He took that like a champ, I can’t believe how calm he was. Dude definitely deserves more than he achieved during his career.

    Damn, it was tough watching BDiddy go down like THAT. Juwan Howard’s reaction was priceless though. Get well BD.

    REAL TALK: BARON DAVIS WAS and STILL IS Since UCLA… One Of My FAVORITE PLAYERS Of ALL-TIME So As Soon As I Seen Him Go Down, I Was Hurt Like Muthafucka Cause I Knew It Wasn’t Good… He’s Been Thru TOO MUCH So It Would FUCKED UP For It To End For Him Like This… He Took It Like A G Though…lol, Cause The Whole Time He Was Laying There, He Was Telling Them To “POP IT BACK IN PLACE” …A TRUE WARRIOR FOR REAL!!!

    Damn. Baron’s knee looks like it collapsed in on itself. Good thing he has legit off-court interests. This might be the end. Also, this might be my chance to start for an NBA team. NY’s bench is non-existant at this point.

    Tough to watch but I too was surprised at how calm he was, even smiling when they got him on the stretcher. I would have looked down at my knee, screamed like a female, pissed myself and then passed out. I hope that’s not the last time we see him on the court.

  • Techie

    Baron is done. After yesterday’s fall, there’s no doubt in my mind that Baron has to think about retirement. An average patella fracture recovery time is between 6-9 months, the most, 1 YEAR. D.Rose and Iman Shumpert are both done for AT LEAST 6 months, and both will not be the same with their explosioness.

    Damn.
    That’s it.

    He took that pain like a champ. But I agree that the shortened season is EXACTLY the reason why all these athletes r getting these serious injuries. Makes u look at how the NFL players didn’t want the longer season plus the same amount of preseason games bc they didn’t want injuries like this to happen. So much pounding on players bodies without proper preparation, training and rest is the recipe for such injuries. NBA players r not superhuman, and although their strength and athleticism are far above the average person, their ligaments bones and tendons r not. I was told by a friend of mine who is a doctor the even if D Rose had sat at the end of that 4th quarter that his ACL was already hanging on by a thread and a tear was inevitably going to happen in the next couple of games. I love that us fans got an NBA season but it is sad that the players and fans r now paying a price with all these injuries. You can guarantee that a shortened and compressed season will NEVER happen again.

    BD took it like a man! But damn, it reminded me of when D.Wade & Rondo got tangled up and Rajon dislocated his elbow in last year’s playoffs. Just had to look away at the replays.

  • dan

    it wouldnt hve hurt any one of us if it wouldve just been 50 games -.- the oposite woudlve been the case. we wouldve seen even more intensity throughout the games coz every game wouldve counted even more
