Feel bad for the kid but...

While I do feel bad that he got injured, and pretty severely at that, I also feel it's a bit of Darwinism at work... He didn't have to dunk it, he was showing off (like so many of these guys do) and as a result he's now out 2 months and will probably have hurt his long-term goals vis-a-vis the NBA.

Lay-ups may not look cool to your homies but it's a lot harder to bust your spine when doing them.

If you're gonna break your back on a dunk, for Pete's sake make the damn thing. :-B

Glad he's gonna be ok. ;-D

Yikes! You're supposed to break the back board, not your back!
