NBA 73 43 The Hall of Infamy: Sports statues we'll never see 31742860 You won't see these sports statues anywhere else You+won%27t+see+these+sports+statues+anywhere+else NBA

Derrick Rose's slow recovery from an ACL injury has been the subject of much debate among NBA fans this season. One website created an instant web classic when they turned it into a joke in early May with this statue. But it also got us wondering: Which other classic sports moments deserve permanent enshrinement in the Hall of Sports Infamy? These are the sports statues you'll (unfortunately) never actually see.

NBA 73 43 The Hall of Infamy: Sports statues we'll never see 31738637 Steve Bartman — Wrong place, wrong time Steve+Bartman+%26mdash%3B+Wrong+place%2C+wrong+time NBA

The stage was set. The Wrigley faithful were fired up, finally ready to celebrate the first World Series trip for the Chicago Cubs since 1945, yearning for a shot to win for the first time since 1908. Leading the 2003 NLCS three games to two, the Cubbies held a 3-0 lead over the Marlins in the eighth inning of Game 6. But a lazy fly off the bat of Luis Castillo drifted toward the seats by the left-field foul line. And from the moment the headphoned Steve Bartman reached out and infuriated Cubs OF Moises Alou, the Curse of the Billy Goat came alive as Florida scored eight times in the eighth, winning Game 6 and the series the next night. The Cubs have not won a playoff game since.

NBA 73 43 The Hall of Infamy: Sports statues we'll never see 31741392 Bill Buckner -- Curses! Bill+Buckner+--+Curses%21 NBA

It's a good thing the Boston Red Sox finally did break the Curse of the Bambino, winning World Series titles in 2004 and 2007 after a near-century-long drought. Otherwise, those scars from his Game 6 error in the 1986 classic against the New York Mets would remain excruciatingly painful, open wounds. Seriously, why didn't manager John McNamara have defensive sub Dave Stapleton in the game in the 10th inning? It's a wicked shame.

NBA 73 43 The Hall of Infamy: Sports statues we'll never see 31738597 Jose Canseco -- Jose, can you see? Jose+Canseco+--+Jose%2C+can+you+see%3F NBA

If this play would have happened to an average player with a more modest personality, it probably wouldn't have stood the test of time. But 20 years ago, on May 26, 1993, the juiced-up, bigger-than-life, former Madonna boy toy Jose Canseco served up what "This Week in Baseball" called in 1998 the best blooper of the show's first two decades in existence — actually heading a fly ball over the fence for a HR while playing outfield for the Texas Rangers. And watching it still makes us LOL.

NBA 73 43 The Hall of Infamy: Sports statues we'll never see 31741391 Mark Sanchez — The butt fumble Mark+Sanchez+%26mdash%3B+The+butt+fumble NBA

You almost feel bad for Sanchez (well, as bad as you can for a multi-millionaire who dates supermodels). Now that Tebow's gone, Sanchez is the unquestioned whipping boy to blame for the Jets mess. And nothing comes closer to summing up the misery than the infamous "butt fumble" play during a humiliating 49-19 Thanksgiving night 2012 home loss to rival New England. It's hard to describe, so just watch for yourself.

NBA 73 43 The Hall of Infamy: Sports statues we'll never see 31737946 Chris Webber -- The timeout for eternity Chris+Webber+--+The+timeout+for+eternity NBA

He is a former NBA Rookie of the Year and five-time All-Star who earned $176 million over his 15-year career. Pretty strong stuff. Too bad he's still a punchline for his mega-blunder in the 1993 NCAA title game while with Michigan, when he helped cement his Fab Five's second straight championship game loss by calling a T.O. in the final seconds with his team out of timeouts and trailing North Carolina by two. And he'll be hearing about it until the end of time.

NBA 73 43 The Hall of Infamy: Sports statues we'll never see 31745360 Bobby Knight -- The Chairman Bobby+Knight+--+The+Chairman NBA

He retired in 2008 with more wins than any college basketball coach in history (he's currently third). He led the Indiana Hoosiers to three national championships. He's Robert Mongomery Knight — aka "The General." His notorious temper is partly the reason. It's part of the reason he was eventually fired at Indiana. It's definitely the reason for this epic clip. Why throw the chair? He says he saw an old lady who needed to sit down on the opposite sideline. Aww, how thoughtful!

NBA 73 43 The Hall of Infamy: Sports statues we'll never see 31744018 Raiders QBs -- Commitment to excrement Raiders+QBs+--+Commitment+to+excrement NBA

One of the NFL's most storied franchises, the Oakland Raiders have gone 10 straight years without a winning season. The biggest reason? Since Rich Gannon got old, their taste in quarterbacks has been terrible. When a journeyman like Jason Campbell (center) can be considered your best passer in a decade, you've got a problem. And JaMarcus Russell (left), possibly the worst of any NFL Draft busts, followed in the shaky footsteps Todd Marinovich once laid the prior decade. Late legendary owner Al Davis is likely still cursing from his grave.

NBA 73 43 The Hall of Infamy: Sports statues we'll never see 31747646 Randy Moss -- Full moon at Lambeau Randy+Moss+--+Full+moon+at+Lambeau NBA

Randy Moss (156 career touchdown catches, second in NFL history) has always caused opposing teams nightmares. But especially the Green Bay Packers. The long-time Vikings wideout has torched the Pack more than any other team, with 14 TD receptions in 15 regular-season games. In the 2005 NFC wild-card playoffs at Green Bay, Moss got under the skin of Packer fans (and Joe Buck) by pretending to drop his pants in the end zone after his second score in a Vikings win. Safe to say he won't get a monument next to Vince Lombardi in Cheesehead Country any time soon.

NBA 73 43 The Hall of Infamy: Sports statues we'll never see 31744017 Nick Saban -- Stone-faced lies Nick+Saban+--+Stone-faced+lies NBA

Dolphins fans thought they scored the ultimate Christmas present in 2004 — the day the title-starved franchise lured LSU's Nick Saban from the college ranks with big-league money (five years, $22.5 million). But it took just two seasons for Saban to jump ship, despite repeated public claims at the end of 2006 that 'I'm not going to be the Alabama coach.' About two weeks later, he was the new Alabama coach — where he has won three of his four NCAA championships.

NBA 73 43 The Hall of Infamy: Sports statues we'll never see 31738584 Sam Bowie — Blazers step in No. 2 Sam+Bowie+%26mdash%3B+Blazers+step+in+No.+2 NBA

Bowie has been called by some the worst draft pick in pro sports history. Don't blame him. Blame the Trail Blazers, who made the mistake of drafting by need over talent at the gifted 1984 NBA Draft. After top target Hakeem (then Akeem) Olajuwon was chosen by Houston with the No. 1 pick, Portland plucked the former high-school legend and college star Bowie with the second selection. You see, since the team had drafted shooting guard Clyde Drexler the year before, the Blazers had no room for Michael Jordan (who went No. 3 to Chicago). Guh. And Bowie had missed two entire seasons in college with leg injuries.

NBA 73 43 The Hall of Infamy: Sports statues we'll never see 31760238 Mark Sandwich — err, Sanchez Mark+Sandwich+%26mdash%3B+err%2C+Sanchez NBA

Sanchez has become a pariah in New York and a symbol of all that's gone wrong for the New York Jets. But apparently it's open season on him around the league. All-Pro receiver Steve Smith of the Panthers went on WFNZ and said “I wouldn’t let Mark Sanchez throw me a paper-bag sandwich.” That's colder than cold cuts. And not the only shot at Sanchez that inspired a statue...
