    I just hope it isn't serious. I swear there's some sort of Rockets jinx when my family goes out of town on a vacation. Last spring we went to Sea World and that was when the news of Bev's knee injury broke. Tomorrow we're flying to Orlando to visit Disney World. If the news is bad about James, we're never taking another trip between November and June again.

    Jesus christ why do all of you ****s expect the worst outcome every-time? It's like you enjoy disappointment.

    Some of you people don't deserve good things

    I recall Kobe shooting his free throws with a torn achilles before he walked off the court to the locker room.

    I hate it when athletes go down without real contact because of a knee injury -- it's rarely minor.

    ...

    Let's hope he just banged that knee and has a cramp or bruise.

    Bruised knee. Thank God. I don't know if I want him to return though.

    This is the replay... his reaction as he walked off (when they show the replay at halftime) suggested this could be serious. Glad to hear the good news...

    Uh, no. Do NOT put him back in this game. Take the damn loss and let him heal up so he's ok for Chicago on Wednesday.

    Screw it, let him sit it out. I don't mind losing this game rather than risk Harden on two shaky knees on the second night of a back to back.

    This guy. I guess you weren't around much during the Yao-Tmac era to know that we legitimately believe that we are cursed.

    Look at Dwight. Look at 0.9 seconds. It wouldn't be too far out of he question for something bad to happen.

    Pretty sure that was his right knee. This bruised knee is the left one.
