A small guard tried to drive the lane and threw up an awkward shot right into him. He barely had to do anything except stand there lol.
George had to quit college basketball because doctors were forced to amputate part of his foot due to a MRSA infection. I think he was able to rehab it though and played professionally overseas for a year or two.
Not that anyone really wanted all this information.
I went with my buddy from college in 2007 to see UNCA play Winthrop at Winthrop. Got to see big George in action. He mightily struggled to get up and down the court, but when he did they just fed him the rock and Winthrop could not defend it.
