He should just retire

Should have done this with the Magic when it first occured...
oh well with the Sun's staff I could see this benefiting his career.

Not sure if this is for sure though, I've only seen that mentioned once. I think he was playing fine in Orlando lately anyways.

Not my decision. but I at least wanna see a Debut or two!

Maybe this explains his incredibly passive play...

Knee surgery is never good...especially not good for a 33 year old who has played well over 800 games in his NBA career.

I'm sure it'll be fine with modern surgeries. Kobe has more games played and is only a little bit younger than VC. It's not like just because he's Kobe, surgery is less bad.

I wonder if the Magic knew. Seems to come out of nowhere.

I hope this doesnt lead to something more serious

Im nervous because for years now VC hasnt had any lingering problem. This isnt a lingering problem, but every time these guys undergo these surgerys they have a lingering knee problem...

Dont want VC to be like that. so stressfull

Suns probably knew this before getting him or learned at the physical.
I was listneing to the radio earlier for KTAR and they said even if we just learned about this, there's no way they are cancelling the deal. You get rid of Hedo and Gortat was who we wanted. No way you pull out of the deal for an expiring.

Plus if they say it's just a month he'll be gone for, then it can't be all that serious. Maybe they're just cleaning something up.

There is no way the Magic fleeced the Suns here. They had to have known about it. He had to take a physical, and if they didn't know about it...I'm sure we'd hear some backlash from someone. A month of no VC probably is still worth it for PHX.

It is just arthroscopic, so yes, they are just cleaning it up. It is not serious knee surgery.

Work ethic comes into play.

We know that Kobe works hard and VC is a lazy ****, so there is a greater chance he won't comeback right.

He is not getting Surgery. He will be out 1-2 weeks though.

Yeah there's no way the Magic swindled the Suns either. Teams know everything about a players health before taking them on.

hey now dont hate on my favorite baller.

but hey Ive heard recent news that it is 1-2 weeks or 2-3 games he'll be missing and under Phoenix Suns knee treatment rather than surgery. Miracle workers I hope that knees been messed since last year mid season.

and Magic are SHADY. You say they didnt pull anything shady in this deal? VC in his interview at practice said he mentioned to the Magic staff how he might want to get the swelling looked at in his knee. He said THAT DAY the Suns Magic trade went down.

haha that is sketchy you gotta say Orlando is desperate right now. Even though I think the Suns got the better deal.
