Default I Fear the Day Lebron Gets Injured

Is he the only superstar to never have sat out a long stretch of games due to a concern worthy injury?

These are just 2 that come to mind:





If your talking about current players, I'd say Dirk hasn't always been out for that long, until after he exited his prime.

Did Tim Duncan ever have to sit out any hugely significant stretch? I know in the middle part of his career (maybe 2004-05), he did sit out some games, but I don't remember it being anything really serious.

Not going to happen. Dude is a TANK. But I'd love to see him develop that jumper more along with that post game as his athleticism declines.

his only serious injury was a pinky injury that sidelined him for like 2 weeks. dude just walks off ankle rolls, knee collisions like its nothing. lets face it, the man was born to play on the court and stay on it.

He missed the playoffs because of injury in 2000. Does that count ?

Hmmm... Yep. I guess that would constitute a major miss due to injury, even though he played 74 games that year and the Spurs played just five playoff games without him.

It was a torn meniscus and Pop made the decision not to play him in the playoffs. Smart, in retrospect... The injury occurred in the 78th game of the season, btw. Terrible timing.
