Durant Admits Paul George's Injury Triggered Withdrawal From World Cup

Kevin Durant withdrew from World Cup of Basketball after watching Paul George horrifically break his leg in a Team USA scrimmage in Las Vegas.

At the time of the announcement, Durant claimed that George's injury had nothing to do with his decision to withdraw.

“It took everything out of me seeing that,” Durant later told friend Randy Williams and a Nike executive at his camp of George. “Everything I had to play for Team USA, that injury stripped it away from me.”

After Durant is shown reacting on court to what he called a “freak accident,” the scene shifts to conversation with Durant in which he says, “When you see something like that, so gruesome, in front of you, of course you’re going to think, ‘This could happen to me.’ ”
