It has become increasingly clear, especially in the past year or so, that what we fans -- and the NBA itself -- expect atheletically from star players, surpass the limits of what the human body was engineered to do. There have been way too many serious injuries. Yes, pro atheletes can generally be considered to fall in the 99th percentile of people who are physically skilled in those feats a particular sport requires. But the evolution of the body hasn't caught up with that of the game. An unusual player develops an unusual move -- and suddenly everyone is expected to be able to do it -- whether or not it's in the genes, or whether or not constant repetition will result in damage.
In one sense, it's self-limiting. When you break down, you can't do it anymore. But it's frustrating to root for a team, when any number of the players you root for can't be counted on to be able to play for significant portions of a season.
Is there any kind of anything the NBA can do to limit this? I can't think of it, but maybe if enough people are thinking about it, someone will come up with an idea.
