On March 31, 2018, Golden State Warriors guard Patrick McCaw had a scary fall that potentially put his career in doubt.
The highlight of the play is on Youtube. McCaw goes up for a dunk and lands on his back and is visibly in pain. He clutches his lower back, is immobilized in a cervical collar, and taken off the court on a stretcher.
Afterwards, we learned that McCaw experienced numbness in his legs. So how is this different than Michael Porter Jr.’s injury that has the NBA Draft world abuzz?
