In the pantheon of greatest understatements in human history, “When I saw the bone sticking out I knew it was bad,” is king. Watch the former-future superstar discuss his future after snapping his leg in twain during a USA Basketball exhibition game on August 6.

He also announced he’s changing his number to 13 because, ya know, Paul George can’t possibly have any worse luck at this point. We kid — the real reason has something to do with being called “PG-13” because he’d like to be a kids show or something. Either way, he’s expected to miss the entire 2014-15 season (though he would give no specific timetable regarding his return).

“It felt like gasoline was on my leg and lit a match…eternally on fire.”
