Yesterday was supposed to be a fun, light hearted scrimmage that should showcase the type of talent that the USA will be sending to Spain soon.
That happened to perfect for 3 quarters and about 3 minutes.
Then, one of the gnarliest injuries of all time.
He was chasing down James Harden and went up to block his shot. When he came down his foot landed on stand that holds up the basket. His ankle proceeded to nearly snap in half.
I have seen a few gruesome injuries in my day and this has to be top 5. It’s not nearly as bad as the Shaun Livingston injury a few years back, but it’s still terrible.
George was looking to improve on his career year last season, but now it is recovery time. No word yet on the extent of the break, but it’s safe to say that he won’t be ready October 31st for opening day.
Best of luck Paul in your recovery. Can’t wait to see you on the court again.
