Paul George's Road Back: Reliving the Nightmare Ep. 1

BR StudiosFeatured ColumnistJanuary 28, 2015

Indiana Pacers star Paul George has become one of the elite players in the league. He proved himself against LeBron James in the postseason a few years back and was a potential MVP candidate coming into the 2014 NBA season. 

On August 1, 2014, George suffered a traumatic leg injury on live television playing for Team USA during a scrimmage. The game was canceled from that point, and Paul's basketball career has been on pause as he recovers from surgery and rehabs to get back into basketball shape.

Bleacher Report has been filming George over the last few months and will be creating a multipart video series about his return to the NBA. 

The Road Back: Part One is the first time George has gone in-depth about the injury, as well as his surgery and rehab. We get his perspective, along with that of his family, who was there during the distressing injury in Las Vegas.
