Don't most one-legged jumpers land on one leg?Rose had a habit of landing on one leg but I don't think that was a massive issue.
The play he tore his ACL was a simple hop step to which he still shouldn't have been in the game.
As a related aside, I find the commonality and rigidity of two-legged jumpers in the NBA to be a strange phenomenon. I remember Jason Richardson saying once in an interview that he legitimately couldn't jump one-legged, could only do a two-legged take-off. That just seems so weird to me. I guess having grown up in Australia, there's not that many kids catching alley-oops or dunking from standing starts, so most are one-legged running jumpers.
