Warning: You can’t really unsee the insane injury that Paul George sustained during fourth quarter of the USA Basketball Showcase in Las Vegas. Fighting a fast break, George came down HARD on his leg, seeming to snap his leg as it hit the stanchion. The replay was shown on the live telecast, but not shown again for how terrible it was. The game ended on that note, with everyone in attendance upset. Via Pro Basketball Talk:
“With the serious injury that we had … and out of respect to Paul and his family, the scrimmage is done, and we want to thank you for your support,” said USA Basketball head coach Mike Krzyzewski, addressing the crowd at center court.
Honestly, it’s so bad that I don’t feel right showing it here on BroBible. You can find it on other sites (Deadspin has it) and definitely on Twitter, but it just doesn’t feel right posting it. You need to know it happened, hence this post, but nothing but prayers and vibes to Paul George.
