But, in theory, yes. It's their job to predict what outcomes are likely. And it's possible that a very good doctor would have predicted what happened and warned against it.
Unless, of course, the Achilles rupture had nothing to do with KD's existing injury. Doesn't seem likely but if that's your theory then so be it.
We have the only two facts we need:
-His own doctors cleared him
-The Warriors own medical staff cleared him
That's TWO different sets of doctors that diagnosed and cleared him, and these are doctors that work with prefossional athletes on a daily basis.
so, it's either we believe them and take them for their word, or listen to people on RealGM that was to drive garbage narratives.
definitely a tough choice.
Dude, do you not understand that doctors make mistakes?
Doctors give incorrect diagnoses on a daily basis.
Those very doctors, if you could ask them now, would probably say that they may have missed something. That if they had more advanced technology or better MRI's maybe they would have advised KD not to play.
The fact that they cleared him and then he ruptured his achilles is the point....take off your rose colored glasses man.
I understand doctors make mistakes.
But we're not talking about ONE doctor.
We're not even just talking about the GSW medical staff.
We're talking about TWO different sets of doctors, with enormous amounts of experience dealing with sports injuries and professional athletes. I highly, highly, highly doubt that two different sets of medical staffs got this wrong to this level. Sorry, I'm not buying it.
And even IF two sets of doctors got this wrong, at this point what do you want people to say or do?
