The year 2013 was filled with examples of athletic excellence. Los Angeles Clippers point guard Chris Paul set an NBA record with 13 straight games with at least 10 points and 10 assists to start a season. Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon set an NFL record by racking up 774 yards in four games, the most ever over that time span. Dwyane Wade did a cartwheel. Yet for every feat of greatness we saw this year, we couldn't help wondering how many more we would have enjoyed were it not for injuries that sidelined some of today's most talented athletes. As the calendar approaches 2014, we take a wistful look at six athletes whom we can't wait to see back in action next year.
