Yeah I highly doubt Paul's x-ray is going to be released by anyone. No party involved wants that floating aorund for a myriad of reasons. Just use common sense on stuff like this.
I actualy think what made the injury so gruesome may actually be Paul's saving grace....the sheer force with which the bones broke is part of why the bend is so graphic but it also may be why he had such a clean break and such minimal ancillary issues.
Was he wearing his shin sleeves? I wonder if that also helped
Those x-rays are not his. Also, why would you post that image? Some people may not want to see that if it can be helped.
Yea you should probably post a warning about that image.
I'm on tapatalk on my phone, so perhaps I can't see. But were the photos inside a spoiler tag? If not, anyone just scrolling down will see them.
*edit: I can see spoiler tags elsewhere in the thread on my phone, so I'm assuming not.*
Sorry don't mean to jump down anyone's throat here, but I've seen LOTS of individuals express that they are trying to avoid seeing the injury. It's a little inconsiderate to post them in that fashion.
I just got back from a mini-vacation. I promised my wife "no computer, no phone, no TV" for a 3 day weekend.
I was thus unaware until Saturday, when a restaurant bar had ESPN on... it almost made me ill seeing the news
The poster "pacertom" since this forum began (and before!). I changed my name here to "Slick Pinkham" in honor of the imaginary player That Bobby "Slick" Leonard picked late in the 1971 ABA draft (true story!)
so I posted 2 links, with a big red warning.
I apologize if anyone trying to avoid the incident was exposed to the pics because of my post
I was watching the game and had to leave to go meet my friends after the 3rd quarter. I got to the bar and they had the game on. The game was stopped, all the players looked extremely somber, and Coach K started talking. From just watching sports I knew some sort of awful injury had happened. Then I see PG get rolled off in a stretcher.
Needless to say I had one too many beers that night.

I still have not seen it. Probably will at some point. But I noticed last night on ESPN or any of the local channels when they showed it they blurred it out, so you couldn't see it. I mainly wanted to see the reaction of the other players.
Also I know NBATV was scheduled to replay the game several times over the weekend and they never did.
I still haven't seen it and don't want to.
I got so angry this morning when I switched on my radio to the awful Miami Heat homer morning shock jocks (I live in south Florida). The first thing I heard from them: "You'd have to think that Frankhole* is relieved, since now there is now no way he can ever be fired next year"
*Frankhole = their name for Frank Vogel.

Or throw in a first-round pick and flip it for a max-level point guard...
