Chris Paul going down when he has may cost the Clippers their season.
There is no pushing reset (is that a thing anymore?), there is no rage-quitting (that is definitely a thing) either. The Clippers fate was inextricably linked to a sudden injury to their star player.
In video games, this may cause a riot to some sports gamers. Why that is, well that's anyone's guess. Perhaps its that we create narratives which we want to see played out -- and silly randomness, like injuries, ruins that.
For some, injuries may not be regular enough. In fact, many clamor for more realistic injury frequency and to have to deal with seasons' lost.
As a Texas Rangers and OKC Thunder fan, I know from very recent previous experience on how injuries can wreck seasons -- but how would you feel if those same scenarios (multiple debilitating injuries to key/star players) happened in your franchise?
