While Friday’s Blue and White Team USA scrimmage will always be remembered for Paul George’s terrible leg injury, the night still featured some pretty cool moments.
Among the fun times: Golden State Warriors point guard Stephen Curry and Denver Nuggets power forward Kenneth Faried had a little dunk-off prior to the game.
The best part of the following video comes at the end, when Curry ponders trying to match a sick between-the-legs dunk by Faried before opting to simply put a jumper and concede defeat to Faried.
Funny and the right move by Curry. He’s a great overall player, but is obviously much more of a shooter than a high-flying dunker. Curry finished the game that was called early due to George’s injury with 9 points.
Pray for PG and his family! Pray for the Doctors overseeing his recovery and that he comes back stronger than before. #USA
