Default Re: whenever I play ball my knees hurt

I've always had bad knees but weight-training helped immensely.

I have to be extra careful with landing after jumping as high as I can. This is why I haven't practiced dunking in years.

A big key for me is warming up slowly before adding stress to my legs/knees. I get the blood flowing for 5 minutes first before even jumping off the ground.
