Livingston was an incredible young talent, but on this night in February of 2007 his promising young career took what looked like a tragic turn when he dislocated his left knee awkwardly landing after missing a layup. In addition to the dislocation, he tore his ACL, PCL, and lateral meniscus, and severely sprained his MCL; it was bad enough that doctors warned him before surgery that they might have to amputate his leg. After learning how to walk again, Livingston remarkably returned to NBA action in 2008 as a reserve for the Heat, and continues to play today.
