ShoeGuy has an OK reputation so far
Default Has any player successfully come back from a torn ACL/MCL injury?

The impression I get is that an torn ACL and/or MCL injury is so severe that players are never the same athletically when they come back (unless you're a freak of nature like Adrian Peterson)

Has anyone ever regained their former self after such an injury?

Baron Davis in college, if you want an athletic PG like Rose comparison.

A lot of people dont even know Jamal Crawford tore his. He doesnt rely on his athleticism as much as others but hes been fine his whole career.

are all acl/mcl tears the same?

could you have a particularly severe tear?

if thats the case then comparisons are kinda stupid, since rose's might be much less/more severe than whomever we are comparing him to.

DeJuan Blair tore both of his and can still dunk and rebound like a beast.
