Bro nobody cares, this is clearly a way to win back some of LA albeit with pity points. You were trash before your leg injury, and you are trash now. Air balls in a game 7?! I can’t believe doc didn’t bench you? Costed that man his job, and then you COMPLAIN needed more time handeling the ball?!? When your time possessing the ball increased?! The man that coddled you because of the stressors of the bubble?! Please, you were trash when you were on Indiana and you are trash now. Lebron beating you 7 years ago and sweeping you in the East, and here he is 7 years later old as shit still embarrassing you. Clippers I’m glad you locked up this playoff bust. Can’t wait for you to choke again this year

Would be interesting to see what type of conversations Paul George had with Gordon Hayward when he also had a compound leg fracture a few years later but I get that it could be private.

Jay پیش ماه
@Jaibands yep..I have a rod inside the middle of my femur bone with 2screws at the bottom & 2 at the top..look up femur fracture on IRpost you'll see how they do the surgery.its pretty interesting to see
Jaibands پیش ماه
@Jay so was it a rod and nail surgery
Jay پیش ماه
@Jaibands yep that's exactly how it was, those type of injuries will get 1st priority in the matter if you got insurance or not. I was flown to a different hospital and soon as I touched down I was getting prepped for surgery. 4hrs later I woke up🤷🏽‍♂️
Jaibands پیش ماه
@Jay so it was like an ER thing like if you got shot type thing no setup just straight to surgery

@Nowhere But Everywhere but just because people or professional athletes have gone through some shit, it does not mean that the media or the people can not criticize that individual... imagine using that logic to justify any action... we can criticize Paul George because he went back on his word and took games off due to load management. Just like we can criticize anyone. Each person alive has been through hard struggles in life. Some more than others, but using that struggle as an excuse to not find fault with, is thoughtless. We as a people have to take responsibilities for the social criticism of behavior of the people in the spotlight. Even though, I must admit, there is a fine line between social criticism and cynical criticism, we must do so... and if we must do so, I would love to laugh at it, like I did at the first comment lmao

@ellzthegod I had the same injury so I know how the process works and what gets affected. yes everyone heals different but you act like the guy was all world before he broke his leg. Was an above average player, who consistently comes up small in the playoffs.

@jeremy john he didn’t lose it. He’s just scared to attack the rim like that. Broken bones heal back stronger nothing physically was lost
Terrance Carmichael

@Gee Andrezzi No what I meant by "by your logic" is that if he was saying how his athleticism slowed him down and impacting him yet he went crazy just 2 years ago, imagine what he'd do that year with it.
Gee Andrezzi
Gee Andrezzi پیش ماه
@Terrance Carmichael yes. That’s what the other guy was saying. You said “by your logic....” as if it wasn’t possible for PG to go off if he lost his athleticism. He went off cause he saw the game better. His athleticism had nothing to do with him going off lol
Terrance Carmichael
Terrance Carmichael پیش ماه
@Gee Andrezzi Of course, I'm saying if he had the added element of athleticism that he lost then imagine how much better he'd be to what was already an elite season. Not really hard to understand...
Gee Andrezzi
Gee Andrezzi پیش ماه
@Terrance Carmichael ......some of the best players in the league weren’t ELITE athletes. I don’t get what you’re saying lol. He went off cause the game slowed down for him that year.
