    You'll never hear me complain about the fly aways again.

    The stanchion style is way too dangerous.

    I get that this was a fluke injury, but it happened making a normal basketball play due to there being an obstruction so near the court.

    For those with strong stomachs...

    Or you can just read the article without the graphic images. http://espn.go.com/olympics/basketb...ent-serious-leg-injury-team-usa-showcase-game

    They are probably gonna have to put pins and **** in that. That's the type injury that can end a career, he's young though, maybe he'll be ok?

    Was reading this morning that the stanchions at the Thomas and Mack Center are closer to the court than usual NBA courts. Some people were saying that the stanchion was at least a foot closer to the court than regular NBA arenas.

    Disturbing video and picture....awful for him because he was just starting to really become a dominate player. Wishing him good karma and a recovery as close to 100% as possible

    The Louisville kid comes to mind. Either way, that's not good for him. Just hope it heals up well.

    After reading last month about Shaun Livingston's long road back to NBA relevance that may be a best case scenario for breaks like this. PG has a long, expensive, and painful way to go and I wish him the best. Pacers were already in a year when there were questions about their window closing and this is really going to hurt.
