Default Paul George Seriously Injures Leg

*WARNING* Pretty graphic if you don't like injuries.

This was during the Team USA showcase. The game was called after the injury.

From some of the stuff posted on a sports card site I'm on, the players were concerned before this happened. Something about the support for the basket being so close to the court.

They were talking about that on ESPN. Something about FIBA rules having the basket closer to the court or something.

Feel bad for him. That looked really painful. Reminds me of the Kevin Ware play.

Had the game on at work. Gruesome injury. It's going to be a long recovery process. I hope he comes back from it and can play at a high level again.

i only caught a bit of the espn report, but they were saying it was the arena's dimensions itself that caused it to be that close to the court or something.

from a pure basketball perspective this sucks, i really wanted to see if he could take his game to the next level this year. he has the tools he just needs to become technically better and more aggressive. rooting for him, awful awful injury.

You're right. He has improved every season. He just needs to clean up that sloppy play he has sometimes. Hope his recovery goes well.

People harped on some of the players like Lebron, Shaq and a bunch of players over the year for not wanting to play for the national team. This is the reason that many don't. I don't know how their insurance works for getting hurt and loss of future earnings if they are playing outside of the NBA.

I'm pretty sure most, if not all, NBA contracts are insured. I would think most player contracts are fully insured. George just signed something like a $90M extension, so he should get at least that much. He'd have to have some kind of private insurance to guard against future earnings after that contract though. Who knows if he has that or if that's even offered to the players?
