Whose career-altering/ending injury do you remember?

    I never saw the Sayers debacle, but that would be one of the top ones.

    For me, though: Mike Davis smoking Kellen Winslow's knee in 1987 (guy killed the Browns and the Chargers)

    Ron Harper, who was so dominant - just below Jordan, blowing out the knee in a non-contact situation.

    Here's the one that might get me laughed out of the room (as if that has ever troubled me...):

    The Bullets' John Williams blowing out the knee. He had so many facets to his game. He got out of shape after the injury and became a Hot Plate joke.

    Oooh, ooh, Moises Alou.

    Not an ender, but he didn't swipe many bases after that ugliness rounding second.

    Bernard King. He came back, and was really good for one year with the Bullets. But he was so dominant before he hurt his knee (agianst the KC Kings?) and was never the same.

    Not a gory injury like a Krumrie or a Kauffman, but a huge impact on a rabid Knicks fan.
