The woman received flowers and a heartfelt note that read: “Lindsey, I’m sorry for the ball hitting you at the game on Saturday! It was not intentional. I hope you are feeling okay. Paul George.”
Presumably, she’s a season-ticket holder, and thus George didn’t offer her tickets to another game.
Overall, though, it’s good for the young star to handle a difficult situation with such class. His post-game comments after the event were quite mature, but his team did happen to win by almost 20 points that night.
He said he expects a fine for his actions, but it’s unclear when or if that fine will be assessed. Head coach Nate McMillan hopes that a suspension won’t be enforced, though a punishment that severe is possible but not as likely as a mere fine.
