The NBA playoffs season is turning into what seems to be the most career threatening set of games we’ve seen in a while.

The latest player to get hurt is NY Knick point guard Baron Davis. After suffering a gruesome knee injury during Game 4 of the Heat vs. Knicks game, it appears that it could potentially end his career. Baron ripped up his right knee and tore his anterior cruciate (ACL) and medial collateral ligaments (MCL) during the third quarter of his teams first win over Miami.

The 33-year-old will undergo surgery and is expected to sit out a minimum of 12 months. Ironically, Baron became the starter after Jeremy Lin had surgery to repair torn cartilage in his left knee. Now that both stars are out, Mike Bibby is expected to start in Game 5.

Hopefully they can conjure up some sort of miracle for the upcoming games.
