Tough break, pardon the pun


LAS VEGAS — Just as we were discussing top draft picks who will miss Summer League due to injury, we get word of another one to add to that list.

From Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! Sports:
Shane Larkin, the Dallas Mavericks' 1st-round pick, broke his ankle in summer league practice, sources told Y! Could be out 2-3 months.
Any injury is obviously tough, but this might’ve been Larkin’s only chance to get some court time in considering all of the additions the Mavericks made at the guard spot this offseason.

Dallas signed point guards Jose Calderon and Devin Harris, and then went out and got a dynamic scorer at the position in Monta Ellis.

Larkin was selected by Dallas with the 18th overall pick in this year’s draft. The team’s other two rookies, Gal Mekel and Ricky Ledo, will be a part of the Summer League roster. http://probasketballtalk.nbcsports.com/2013/07/12/mavericks-first-round-pick-shane-larkin-suffers-broken-ankle-out-2-3-months/

That's what happens when you get crossed over by Westbrook in a pick up game.

How the hell do you break your ankle during practice?
I'm telling y'all, Pat Riley must be into voodoo or some crap.
Put a curse on Dallas after Miami lost to them in the finals.
He also must've made their GM stupid because none of their moves so far make any sense.
