Daniel “Booby” Gibson and our ankle brace for basketball
Daniel "Booby" Gibson was a very promising basketball player for the Cleveland Cavaliers of the NBA. Due to a variety of ankle injuries, he had to end his career prematurely. Despite multiple surgeries, Daniel Gibson couldn't get over the intractable injuries, which led to his retirement in 2015. However, he has since found a new role as coach of the Cavaliers in the NBA. Booby's path shows the challenges that athletes have to face and how much torn ligaments and other ankle injuries can affect the entire career and thus the life path of athletes.
