i dislocated my left knee when i was about to turn 13.
i was playing on an uneven (not entirely flat) court and probably stepped on one of the bumps as i was getting down from a rebound. i was surprised why i fell because i felt i landed good at first, didn't even feel any pain. but then i tried to get up and felt something from my knee and when i looked at it, the little bone in my left leg came out of my kneecap. thats when i first started feeling the pail lol. my buddies told me i turned white and was suddenly all sweaty.
i practically stopped playing ball after that, for about 3 years. i'd never forget that day, july 19, 1995. it was a week before my birthday (celebrated it on crutches) and at the same time was also the first time i asked somewhat out without getting turned down (practically the reason why i was bouncing all over the court and driving against guys over 6" taller than me).
injuries suck, kinda remembered this after hearing bout bynum. hope he's okay. so what do you guys have to share?
