The Warriors’ backcourt is in Spain, trying to help the U.S. team win the FIBA Basketball World Cup. During the tournament, shooting guard Klay Thompson is exclusively sending The Chronicle excerpts from his daily diary. In his first entry, Thompson talks the devastating Paul George injury, the West Point cemetery and playing golf with some of the game’s greats. It’s funny to think it’s been a month since we reported to Las Vegas and started competing every day. It’s been a lot of fun, and I’m thankful for the experience of being around players with this much talent, because...

At his first press conference since suffering an open tibia-fibula fracture, it was evident that Paul George views his setback as something that will only make him stronger both professionally and personally. "The whole injury is behind me," said the Pacers' star. "I'm trying to use my best foot to move forward." Ushering in laughs, it was a jovial comment few likely expected to hear uttered by a professional athlete present for the express purpose of discussing a severe and currently debilitating injury; yet, at each turn of the press conference, the quip seemed to perfectly epitomize Paul...

Switching his number from 24 to 13, Paul George's new nickname is sure to be "PG-13." More importantly, let's all just hope that his game can one day again be Rated R. What was once mere speculation is now set to become a reality. After weeks of speculation by bloggers, reporters, and the Twittersphere, ESPN's Business Correspondent, Darren Rovell, reports that Paul George will, in fact, be changing his number from 24 to 13: Paul George to become "PG-13," change jersey # from 24 to 13.

What Paul George's horrific injury means for G-Time. Also: Trevor Booker's potential, Bill Simmons' plan for a midseason tournament, your FanPosts, and more. You never want to see an injury like the one Paul George suffered. (Seriously. You DON'T want to see it. I'm not even linking to it here. I was caught unawares when I first saw it while checking Twitter after seeing Guardians of the Galaxy and I nearly hurled the entire large popcorn I ate during the movie because I am a fat person.) (Okay, most of that is a lie. Where were we? Right, Paul George. Ugh.) Despite the injury to the...

I asked Kenneth Faried about the horrible Paul George injury and if he thought it would negatively impact NBA players’ willingness to participate in future USA basketball events.
