    Scrimmage in Vegas tonight.

    I think Paul George just snapped his lower leg in half. Almost reminded me of the kid from Louisville a couple years back....not as gruesome, but probably just as bad. Pacers were just dealt a serious blow...in a scrimmage of all things. Sucks for Paul.

    Yeah from everything I've read it was really, really ugly. I almost don't want to watch any video of it if it exists.

    I was watching that at the time. That injury was brutal to watch.

    That could be a career ender if he severed enough things...just brutal...good kid too

    I'm really shocked no ones ever thought about how close the stanchion is to the floor...these are rediculous athletes

    I just can't believe it happened to a star like that.... Really puts things into perspective. The guy went balls to the wall for a block on a meaningless lay up in a scrimmage, and now who knows what happens with him.

    He was lucky all he did was break his leg. Reports said he didn't tear anything. Hope he has a speedy recovery. And it was nice to see Hartline come out and say what he said. I didn't know he had a injury just like this his senior year of highschool
