Paul George

Suffers Horrifying Injury

(WARNING: EXTREMELY GRAPHIC)

8/1/2014 9:29 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



You gotta send one up for Paul George -- the NBA superstar suffered a gruesome broken leg during a Team USA scrimmage Friday night in Las Vegas -- and this video of the injury is NOT for the weak of heart.

The Indiana Pacers small forward was attempting to block a James Harden layup, and his right foot landed right against the backboard stanchion -- immediately snapping somewhere above the ankle … it appeared

Coach Mike Krzyzewski called the game out of respect for Paul and his parents … who were in the arena.

Paul was taken to a hospital, where he's reportedly having surgery.

THIS SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM "TMZ,ESPN,ALL SITES.ETC", WHAT HAPPENED TONIGHT SHOULDNT BE VIEWED BY KIDS, LET ALONE ADULTS. REMINDS ME OF WHEN I WAS A KID AND SAW JOE THIESMAN GET HIS LEG BROKEN BY LAWRENCE TAYLOR BY ACCIDENT ON MONDAY NIGHT. JUST NOT GOOD TO SHOW THESE TYPE OF INJURIES FOR THE SAKE OF THE INJURED AND FAMILY. THIS CAN RUIN A CAREER OR CHANGE IT DRASTICALLY. HE WENT FROM RISING STAR TO, TRULY UNCERTAIN FUTURE IN THE NBA AS A PLAYER. HIS LIFE WONT BE OVER, GEORGE SEEMS TO BE A BRIGHT GUY, HE CAN BE AN ANALYST/ETC., BUT, HE HAD A BRIGHT FUTURE, HEARTBREAKING INJURY THEY NEED TO TAKE DOWN OUT OF RESPECT FOR GEORGE AND HIS FAMILY/FRIENDS!!!! l LGNM

ESPN didn't need to do a slow motion replay. That is low class. But, then ESPN gave up on being classy years ago.
