Turner injured - out 8 weeks

According to the ABC scroll just now, apparently Evan Turner fell making a dunk in today's rout. He broke two vertebrae and is out for 8 weeks. Bad, bad, break for Turner and the Bucks.

didn't mean to duplicate your post. there wasn't one in here about it when i first started to type mine up. yours is more like a short-but-sweet just to get it out there twitter post so we might just want to have the mods combine them. you can have the first one. doesn't matter to me.

I will gladly defer. You did more work than I did. Mine can just be nuked. Sad situation, though, I was just starting to really look at Turner as a potential NBA player (which is why I bothered to post). He has/had a lot of potential.

That was one of the scariest falls to the floor I have seen in a while. I am happy there wasnt more damage done to the young man.

I was in high school and jumped off a bleacher to slam dunk. I held onto the rim for some reason and my legs went horizontal. My momentum pulled my hands off the rim, and I landed on the lower part of my back. I jumped up and acted like nothing happened because the gym was full of fellow students during lunch, and I was embarrassed to high heaven. I hurt like hell, and the next day there was three circled bruises, where I had hit. I have had back problems ever since, but I played through it, because I was so embarrassed to tell anybody about it. Hopefully Turner heals up well, with treatment.

For myself, I don't know where I was more stupid. The act itself, or the lack of seeking treatment. Live and learn I guess.
