Paul George knew leg injury was bad when he saw bone sticking out

BY Jimmy Traina • August 15, 2014

Paul George met the media on Friday for the first time since suffering a compound right leg fracture during a Team USA scrimmage game on Aug. 1.

The Indiana Pacers forward was asked several questions about what was going through his head in those moments immediately after the gruesome injury took place.

He started off by giving the press a pretty basic answer.

George followed that up with another thought, which really doesn't need any explanation.

Anyone who saw the scene that evening knew the two-time NBA All-Star had to be in excruciating pain, but based on what he revealed today, it was worse than you could've imagined.

Let's hope George has nothing but a pain-free existence from here on out.
