I mean he could do it and be happy, but I think he should take some time off regardless of the surgery just to adjust to being bone on bone in both knees.If he has the surgery no one knows what could happen. He could essentially be the Tommy John of basketball.

Yeah, well he is out "indefinitely". I bet he comes back for a few games and then they shut him down for the season. No point in damaging your knee any more. Overcompensating is an issue as well.

I totally agree with the Tommy John reference. If it works, he can come back and be the player he used to be(atleast 85% I'd assume) and help other players as well. Right now he's obviously not that.
