    Wow Russel again... I thought he was fine. 3rd knee surgery in the past 6 or 7 months..

    Injuries should force NBA to shorten season, but you never know... there is way too much money at stake.

      Al Horford tears pectoral muscle, possibly out for the season. (that injury usually takes about half a year)

          It is possible, but if owners and players can't agree on this before new season starts... then we'll have another lockout.

            No offence. But that's stupid. It's always been 82 games season(well unless there's a lockout). Why change it now? because of injuries?? come on, give me a break.

              Agree with TRex. There's no bloody chance in hell that the owners shorten the season. Lose out on all that extra cash?

              Look at the NFL and it's injuries, they're talking about expanding their regular season!

                Lockout season was successful, surprisingly. David Stern loved it and he promised that owners will consider to shorten the season when the time is right.

                  Boo.

                  Worst knee-jerk reaction.
                  No.

                  Point to preparation.
                  Point to what a freak of nature Westbrook is (could any body support what he has put his through without injury? Rose begs the same question).
                  Point to the fact that atheletes are being forced to push their bodies further than ever to compete with others doing the same.
                  Point to whatever physiotherapy practices are currently being used (constantly changing).
                  Point to diet.
                  Point to sleep.
                  Point to genetics.
                  Point to chance.

                  Don't shorten the fucking season.

                    The ONLY reason they won't shorten the season is profit. Shortening the season would make games more meaningful and decrease injuries, but that isn't what drives a money driven business

                      I think players should do almost zero work for 3 to 5 months other than shooting drills. A lot of these injuries smack of overtraining.

                          If anything lengthen the regular season. Give these guys the same amount of games, cut a week or two off preseason (because what good is it anyway) where you only need 4-5 games to prepare, tops. Diminish the amount of back-to-backs. Diminish tight travel schedules. Try to avoid adding actual extra week(s) so you don't actually lengthen the calendar of the season.

                            The amount of injuries this year has to be breaking some sort of record... this is getting ridiculous.

                              "The Pelicans said Friday morning that point guard Jrue Holiday will be out indefinitely after being diagnosed with a stress fracture in his right tibia."

                              You've gotta be kidding me...
