Athletes are a talented bunch. But nobody has ever accused them of all being smart. Or having any real concept of common sense, decency, or consideration. Such is the case of Paul George of the Indiana Pacers. When we last spoke of Paul George, his leg was breaking every kind of which a way. Well today, he decided to share his thoughts on the Ray Rice situation via Twitter. And yes, you know how this is going to go.
Look, I don’t know how many times we have to say this to our athletes, especially the super inarticulate ones (like George), but ride slow homey. Pump your brakes and ride slow homey. Do not weigh in. Let the people who do the heavy mental lifting handle it publicly and you can speak your peace at home amongst people who love you and won’t judge you (too much). Clearly, somebody got a hold to him and he sent that last tweet and deleted the non-sensical ones. But still, we have GOT to give these talented fools more training or something.
