I've never heard about another athlete tearing his ACL twice in the same knee with only a year in between. It's what I did at age 14 and then at age 15. My knee is fine right now; I have all the cartilage; I can lift weights and play run-and-cut sports all that I want. There was a time I thought I could've been a good athlete in college, but I gave that up. Michael Redd may have to give up being anything more than a standstill three-point shooter, a la Steve Kerr, if he wants to play in the NBA again.
MILWAUKEE -- Michael Redd's first season with a surgically repaired left knee ended the same way his previous one did.
Redd tore the ACL and MCL in his left knee for the second time in less than a year on Sunday night in the second quarter of Milwaukee's 95-77 loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.
