Pacers F Paul George on the opportunity to play for Team USA after the horrific injury he suffered in Las Vegas: "It's been a whirlwind. It's been a roller coaster. But I think when you have goal as a kid, it's hard to knock it and it's hard to shy away from it because of an injury. It's something I've always wanted to do since I was a kid, so I'm just fortunate and grateful that I was able to return to form and come back to the player that I was to get this opportunity again to play for a gold medal."
