If you’re not a huge sports fan, then injuries probably don’t sound like a big deal. We certainly thought that was the case until we started following the NBA more closely. And wow, a single injury to your ankle can leave you sidelined for the entire season.

Selski here. Even a person of his credibility—a three-time Olympic gold medalist and a breaker of multiple world records—can have a bad day.
