"A Smooth Sea Never Made a Skillful sailor"
George was told at the age of 11, that he might not play basketball, due to a broken leg. George loved basketball, but was just too ditzy and his coach didn't believe that anyone should wear glasses while playing basketball, because you could have the dilemma of getting them knocked off and broken. This lead to George getting cut from the team. When George broke his leg, along with being told that he might not be able to play basketball again, he was in bed for a year! George's dream was to play at Notre Dame, a division one college in Indiana. The coach talked to George, however it wasn't the response that he wanted, the coach told George that he was too slow and clumsy to play division one basketball, so off George went to DePaul. George was doing really well at DePaul, until the new goal tending rule was established, in a way it was a compliment to George, but George wasn't too happy because it dropped his average score by four. In all of George's professional career, he fractured both feet, legs, wrist, several fingers, and his nose. He received 166 stitches in all, a permanent limp, a lost knee cap, and he couldn't straiten his arms fully. From all of that you would probably say that basketball is a pretty rough sport, but he was really physical. After all, he wanted to win, right? Who doesn't? George got old as many people do, and he decided to retire, after a long time in retirement he was slowly dying, he had bad kidneys, and diabetes he was losing all of his money and fast, so he asked the league if they would give him some money because he was such a great player who boosted basketball from the fan point of view, also because he was a legend. The league rejected the request.
