“Broken ankles” has turned into a typical term in basketball vernacular. For Kevin Ferrer, it’s strict.

Amid the Williams Jones Cup in Taiwan, Japan, this week, the Filipino player burned Iraq’s Hussein Talib with a crossover move in the end seconds of an 84-75 win. Talib went down in torment and must be carted away the floor.

This is not to celebrate an injury—we hope Talib is OK—yet truly harming an opponent’s ankles is one for Ferrer’s resume.
