Worst NBA Injuries of All TimeMasonOcker *If any video links are presented below, note that these injuries are gruesome.
Even though it's reputation is not the same as football or boxing, basketball is still quite a dangerous sport, especially on the level of the NBA. These athletes put their bodies on the line day after day, and sometimes, that mindset can cost them years they will be forced to sit out. Here is the list of the worst NBA injuries of all time.
The Top Ten
I personally put Livingston at the top spot, because of how scary this injury was, not only to his career, but to his life. As stated by SBNation.com, "Livingston tore his ACL, PCL, MCL, and meniscus and dislocated his knee. There was legitimate concern that his leg would have to be amputated." Because of how his injury almost ruined his life, I think it's safe to say that this injury truly was the worst of all time. - MasonOcker
