The Chicago Bulls figured got exactly what they needed when they signed Carlos Boozer. A potent scorer and fierce rebounder, Boozer planned to start the 2010-2011 NBA season as Chicago's first All-Star big man in decades.
The key word, sadly, is "planned." Boozer still hasn't seen the court.
Why? According to the power forward, he tripped over his gym bag while going to answer the door, and, while trying to prop himself up, heard a pop. Turns out that he actually broke his hand because he has the grace of a drunken manatee.
Whether or not this is the truth (and there has been much debate in that regard) isn't relevant, but it does bring up a good question: How many other ridiculously embarrassing injuries have their been in sports?
Could Boozer's mishap really top the list? To find out, just keep on clicking.
But don't get carpal tunnel in the process, or you might find yourself on the list.
