Kenny George Had Part Of Foot Amputated

The 7-7 UNC Asheville center underwent several surgeries at one time to fight a severe staph infection. Part of his right foot was amputated three weeks ago, and his coach hinted George’s playing career could be over.

    Ahem, Dajuan. And sucks (in fact, really sucks) for George, but it wasn’t like he would’ve earned millions playing the game. Think I’ve seen enough to say his body wasn’t gonna hold up. Muresan was athletic compared to him.

    I think the headline means “amputated”

    Being freakishly tall must suck

    When I initially read the headline I thought they were talking about Gheorghe Muresan. Sucks regardless.

    The weird thing is there seems to be no other reports or anyone else having it. It says its transmitted through skin to skin contact, you’d think someone else at the camp would have it and it doesnt sound like something you can keep quiet.

    I get the jokes,but on a serious tip, this is just really sad. I hope that UNCAsh hooks him up with a job at the program or something. Kenny seems like a genuinely nice dude, who had a big impact on the court last season.

    Damn, this sucks.

    That is a shame. I seen him play UNC. Dude is a giant. Maybe he could dye his skin green and work for marketing vegtables.

    Think the headline means amputated, but thats cool. Leave it as it is. Shame though for Kenny.

    I think Ben and I are going to be the saddest people in the SLAM Dome to hear this news…

    Lang beat me to the above comment by 100 minutes. Agreed 100%. Get well soon, Kenny!

    I feel very bad for him because he as a man obviously affected with a pituitary condition would have benefited greatly from having a couple of years in the NBA to pay for a lifetime of medical assistance. Get well big man.

    Doesn’t matter who you are, but you never want to read such things about anyone. Well wishes.

    This is sad for Kenny. However, he is a good guy and a great student so he should bounce back.

    For some better videos of Kenny, see my website:

    I went to UNCA with Kenny but graduated this past May. I am really out of the loop b/c I just found out YESTERDAY that this happened. I’m so upset. He’s such a sweet guy and he’s already had a lot of unluck the last few years with his health. I hate it for him. Hopefully they can figure out a way to help him so he can play again….people do marathon races with two fake legs. There has to be something that can be done with a foot. All the technology these days!
