    Tough Break for Lin....out for the remainder of the season....he will never be the same after this knee injury and probably the end of his NBA career.

    Dude. Really? This is just not the time for that.

    I hope to see a ban in your future.

    This is a sad thing and your commentary should take a backseat to this.

    This is just heartbreaking. You could tell by his facial expression how bad he wants to play and that his worst fears might be coming true. I feel absolutely terrible.

    That is a tough break especially at his age because regaining his speed from a raptured ACL at his age is tough........

    I had same feeling when I watched Yao hurting and laying on the ground several years ago. Patellar Tendon rupture for a player like Lin is devastating because he is not exceptionally skillful, he need his speed and explosiveness to penetrate. He will never be the same. A year from now he will be 30, the same age when Yao retires. :(

    If you knew anything about me, you would know I'm not a fan of Yao. I'm far from a LOF. Regardless of my opinion, it's sad to see any player go down with an injury like this.

    You're stupid. GTFO with the "Lin Trolls" crap. This is devastating to a player, any player. And second of all what his fans does has nothing to do with him.

    Given his age and history of ACL's recovery rate to back to what bit was prior to to the injury it might not finish his career but it will probaly never be the same again.
