Injuries can be the worse thing for any athlete or team since it can pretty much jeopardize a teams position of making a championship run. Right now The Golden State Warriors are facing that exact same problem right now. Last week they pretty much had their whole starting lineup injured (which consist of all-star players).
A huge blow that The Golden State Warriors are suffering right now as they have recently found out that Steph Curry has an MCL sprain and further MRI will be done to determine the exact amount of time he will miss. I personally would say Steph Curry should be able to come back in the first round of the playoffs but it is a delicate matter as you do not want to rush a recovery of player, but when you are at an all-star calibre like Stephen Curry, then you always want to come back and play so that they can make a contribution to their team.
Golden State Warriors are testing out new technology (I mean there are in pretty near Silicon Valley, a tech hub for the world) where they collect data from there players when in practice and games to see if the players are giving their 100 percent during games and practises. It has been said that the technology is a chip in the shoe and compares data from previously before. Some reports have been suggested that this device can even focus and see what muscles are working harder then other in order to see if they can prevent injuries. As much as that sound greats, currently I am very skeptical about it, and how it can sense what muscle the players are using and if it is been overused where an injury can occur.I think it would be great if the technology does exist, as it can prevent many serious injuries that can have a lifetime impact on the player’s career.
What do you guys think? can we really create a technology where you can place a chip and the chip can determine what muscles are being used (and to determine if an injury is possible)/ if the athletes are giving their full 100 percent?
Is it fair to the athletes? (risk of being accused of not giving their full 100% during game/practise when an athlete might be?) let me know in the comments! curious about what you guys think!
