We were left with nothing but laughter, to later find out that he had torn his ACL. “My jump was excellent,” he said. “It was my landing I needed to work on. It was funny. It was part of my career. I talk about it all the time. You have to laugh about it.”

Top 4 Embarassing Stories in the History of Professional Athletes
By Keonna Burnett
Nobody's perfect, not even your dearest professional athletes. After discussing the history of pro sports with my colleagues, we've come to the conclusion that yes, we're all human, and we all have those days once in a while. Whether it be getting too humble of a bear hug and obtaining an injury, or sneezing too hard, and also, obtaining an injury, we are definitely prone to trouble.
After extensive research and countless hours of fact check, we have prepared a list of the top 4 epic fails in the history of professional athletes.
No. 1: Ryan Lochte Caught Peeing in the Back of a Gas Station:
Apparently, after not receiving enough attention in the Rio Olympics this summer, Ryan Lochte, swimmer from the one and only, team USA told Rio policemen and American reporters that he and his friends were robbed in a gas station.
"Hmmm... " I thought. And apparently so did a lot of other public figures. The aspects of the three swimmers' stories combined, didn't add up, and left viewers with a profusion of questions and concerns, leading to surveillance footage being released, ending in Lochte admitting the truth to the media. Now you would think that him admitting the truth would resolve the issue, but no. The surveillance footage didn't just show Ryan and his friends "not getting robbed", but it also revealed them getting kicked out of the bathroom of the gas station after vandalizing it, and getting into an intense argument with the owner of the store. And with the truth, Ryan included the part of the story that wasn't caught on camera of him peeing in the back of the gas station, and breaking an advertising sign. What a night, and an idiot!
No. 2: Nick Young Getting Dumped by Iggy Azalea:
Everybody makes mistakes, just, some are bigger than others. Nick Young, shooting guard for the Los Angeles Lakers, was caught cheating by his ex Fiancé, Iggy Azalea after she returned home and saw him with another girl on their home security footage. And quite frankly, Iggy isn't your average 'wife to be'.
The rapper, actress, songwriter, model and director has always been known to be fierce, but after kicking Nick out of the house, throwing his stuff out on the lawn of HER house, and having the 1962 Chevrolet Impala she purchased for him as a Christmas gift towed... she can officially add "savage" to her wikipedia page.
No. 3: Delonte West and Lebron James... Mom???
Briefly before King James went to South Beach to play for Miami, the rumor of the season was that Delonte West allegedly had relations with Lebron's mother, Glorida James. And even being a female, not currently on a championship winning NBA team, I know that there have to be some type of underlying bro code that circles the team. Though the rumors were never proven to be confirmed, West brought it up in a wide ranging interview:
“I named my son Cash after Cashius Clay and Johnny Cash…His middle name is Delonte but I didn’t want to name him Delonte West Jr. just because of that… I don’t want my son going to school and people making fun of him for something his daddy did, ‘Oh didn’t yo daddy have sex with LeBron James mama?’ Man, I don’t want to deal with all that . . . “
Sounds like a confirmation to me...
No. 4: Bill Gramatica's Celebration Inflicted Injury:
The Arizona Cardinals', Bill Gramatica got a little too excited after his team nailed a 42-yard field goal, early on in the game. He jumped and kicked in excitement, and painfully descended to the ground with a traumatic look on his face.
