    Absolutely, but it doesn't change the fact that people labeling him as such after 2 freak injuries were dumber than a bag of turds.

    Is this your way of celebrating that you were right by calling him injury prone earlier?

    Great job. You must be really happy about being right after all.

    Also, there were a lot of morons who wrote off Derrick Favors as a lost cause after having several years of multiple knee and back injuries. Dude seems to be fine now, so the Exum haters might wanna hold off on breaking their hand by patting themselves on the back too hard.

    This is an injury that pro football linemen get fairly frequently. If it is partially torn we still may see him in the playoffs.

    Do the Jazz get any room to go sign another player with an injury exception for the playoffs?

    I don't really know him. He might be a fine young man. Might be a scumbag. When I talk about Dante it's always in how it relates to the jazz. Same with all the other players for the most part.

    From all accounts Ricky is super nice. Doesn't mean I won't give my true opinions on his play though.

    Not surprised. Xray is known to be as fragile as glass for a reason. I'm sure people are going to leap to his defense and shame others for their opinions. The truth is being paid 9m a year to effectively sit on the bench.

    These injuries are not life threatening and after this contract is done, he will have still have more money in the bank than a lot of people will have earned over a few decades. No pity is necessary.

    What bothers me more is that Dante is getting paid more than Randle, who BTW just dropped 45 tonight. I don't blame DL for taking Dante over him in the draft 5 yrs ago, but after all these years, who else now would offer Dante more money than Randle???

    Absolutely devastating and very sad. Nevertheless, those who expect him to be back, or to even have a successful NBA career, I think are in denial. It's obvious that Dante's body is not capable of withstanding the rigors of playing in the NBA. He's been out for how long, and I'm sure the trainers who worked with him weren't going to let him play until he was fully healed. And he's back three games, and he has another serious injury. How many times, how many years does this have to happen before we admit the reality of his situation? C'mon, read the tea leaves. This young man is not physically capable of playing in the NBA.

    The Jazz were paying Dante purely based on potential. It was a high risk/high reward move for sure, I hope the kid is like Stephen Curry was early on, plagued with injuries then ends up becoming great.

    Steph's injury history was not even remotely as bad as Dante's.
