Can It Get Any Worse? Paul George Burglarized, All-Star Ring Stolen
BY: John “Hennry” Harris
Indiana Pacers leading scorer Paul George has had an exceptionally trying few weeks. He has been allegedly “catfished” by a gay man and sent him pictures of his, well … you know, on the eve of the playoffs, teammates Lance Stephenson and Evan Turner got into a well-publicized fight, Roy Hibbert was benched for the 2nd-half of a game after he was caught watching King of the Hill during halftime as the #1 seed in the Eastern Conference has seemingly been imploding, unraveling and embarrassing themselves right out of the playoffs after a promising regular season.
It is now being reported that George’s home was reportedly burglarized during the Pacers 107-97 loss to the Atlanta Hawks on Monday night. Reportedly, one of the items missing is George’s platinum NBA All-Star ring.
According to news reports, George’s parents, who live in the home, discovered that things were missing from the home and notified the police shortly before midnight. More than $15,000 of items were taken including: Paul George’s platinum blinged-out NBA All-Star, a watch, a pair of Air Jordan 4 ‘Toro’ shoes and a $20 bill.
Police say that there are no signs of forced entry into the home and believe that the theft occurred sometime between 7:15 p.m. and 11:45 p.m., which covers the time period of the game.
Investigators revealed that security footage from the home is being reviewed.
George’s parents also revealed that they did not lock the door of their son’s home due to the fact that they did not have a key, nor was the security alarm on the home set.
Can the Pacer’s pull it together to avoid becoming just the 6th No. 1 seed to lose to a No. 8 seed in NBA playoff history? The season showed so much promise and is slipping away fast.
This robbery could either be the last straw that broke the camel’s back or be the motivation he needs to lead his team to victory.
