Free agent G/F Kelenna Azubuike needs anther surgery on his troublesome knee.
It's a really bad turn of events for Azubuike as his first patella tendon operation was botched. "They put his knee back together wrong," a source told the New York Post. Now Azubuike has another long uphill climb to get back on the NBA radar.

Poor kid. He's very talented but probably won't ever be the same b/c of this. Way to go surgeons.

Now it makes sense why nobody even showed interest in him after the Knicks cut him.

He was supposed to contribute in a big way for the Knicks but never got out of a suit because of this. He is talented and I hope he can salvage whats left of his career after another rehab stint.

that sucks, I remember his being a great story after the Warriors called him up from the D-League. Hopefully he can find his inner Chad Pennington and just keep coming back.

Man, that's terrible. I really liked his game last season, and was hoping he'd recover more quickly. Hope they get the 2nd one right. :/

That's really sad. Like Brandon Roy sad. Best of luck to Azubike; he should sue if he isn't able to return to NBA forum.

Dude im sure he had one of the best surgeons in the world. Sometimes things don't go as planned or complications happen that are out of the doc's control. Im not saying they ****ed up but a surgery can be "botched" for a lot of different reasons

Too bad for him, he's a very special talent.

But how the hell do you 'botch' surgery? I mean, I know you can have complications after it or something, but I never heard someone 'botch' surgery. If I was KA, I would sue that surgeon.

Which is why we cut him. Its sad that we did though. When healthy he could have easily been our best player at the 2 guard. Wish him luck

Wow That's a bad deal for him. Not very often you hear of botched surgeries on athletes. Hopefully some teams give this guy a chance to come back when he heals.

I think you would be surprised how often mistakes are made during surgeries - there are so many different things that could go wrong. You just don't see it too often with athletes because they have access to some of the most experienced orthopedic surgeons.

Either way I feel bad for Azubuike...hope he can get back on track.
