As much as I love basketball any time I can get it, the gruesome Paul George injury raises some questions about NBA players participating in USA basketball. I understand that these guys want to play for their country but Paul George gets paid millions of dollars to play for the Pacers during the NBA season. Hypothetically, as an owner, would you want to see your star and $90 million player breaking his leg in a meaningless international scrimmage? This injury could start a trend as to who actually decides to play for team USA in the future.
I love this guy. He may not be the most talented or skilled guy out there, but there is never any quit in Josh Harrison. He reminds me of playing ball when I was a kid, giving it all you had no matter what. That rundown today against the Rockies and the the clutch homer were just incredible. I don’t know how long he’ll last in the big leagues, but he is by far my favorite player to watch. HFor me he is what baseball is supposed to be about, having fun!
Totally agree. Harrison is such a fun player to watch. His scrappy/underdog approach is really refreshing to watch in any professional approach. I wish all players had that kind of mindset when they step out onto the field.
