On top of it all, Paul George’s house was burglarized during Game 5 loss, All-Star ring taken

Monday night sucked for Paul George.

He went to work Monday night and his Pacers got stomped by a better shooting, better prepared Atlanta Hawks team that is playing with passion and like a unit. The Pacers legionary collapse is on the verge of becoming a reality.

Then he got home to find his home had been burglarized while he was out.

Among the items taken was his All-Star ring, reports the Indianapolis Star.

A diamond-studded NBA All-Star ring, worth about $15,000, was among the items stolen from Indiana Pacers player Paul George during a burglary Monday night…. Aside from the ring, a $700 Flux watch, a pair of red Jordan 4 Toro tennis shoes and $20 also were missing, according to an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department report.

The report also says there was no forced entry.

This also happened to Nick Young recently (not during a playoff game, he played for the Lakers last season). It happened to Chris Bosh last year.

Note to NBA players: Alarm systems. You are gone for extended periods of time for work, alarm systems are good investments. Also, try locking your doors and windows. Just a thought.

    everytime i read about pro athlete’s houses being broken into, i laugh a little. they get paid millions every year, yet they cant spend for a good system to protect their houses.

      Yeah, because alarm systems always stop thieves.

    All-star rings? That’s lame anyways.

      I didn’t know they existed lol

    This meltdown is almost tough to watch. I feel sorry for some of these guys,

    – from a bulls fan.

    • au1978 - Apr 29, 2014 at 3:31 PM

      Y’all are having a meltdown of your own. Wait, what am I saying? So is my team. Smh.

        Well while I’m disappointed the bulls arent making it out of the first round, we never were contenders and I expected a similar run as last year. Pacers were the 1 seed, and viewed as contenders, maybe even favorites to come out of the east before they just collapsed. really sucks for indy fans. Id like to know what the main source of this is. I know its not the granger trade. sure it may have hurt a little but, not enough to make them suck this bad.

    so in other words nothing valuable was taken. after the way he has played the second half of the season he did not deserve it anyway.

      Kinda like how your comments deserve ridicule and pity.

  5. joshm5683 - Apr 29, 2014 at 12:45 PM

    I like how it also says they lifted a $20 from him…………like of all the other various things they probably could have swiped……..they saw a 20 sitting on a nightstand or something and decided to swipe that.

  6. southbeachtalent - Apr 29, 2014 at 12:45 PM

    Damn, that sucks.

  7. pharohislife - Apr 29, 2014 at 12:47 PM

    That’s cold, they took the $20 too.

  8. Legacy112 - Apr 29, 2014 at 12:47 PM

    “And $20 also were missing”

    Lol. Really, $20 was worth reporting stolen.

    I hope that’s a typo.

  9. misremembered72 - Apr 29, 2014 at 12:47 PM

    the burglar took $20 as well! Too far….

    When it rains, it pours.

    This is probably explains Roy HIbbert’s disappearance.

    • asimonetti88 - Apr 29, 2014 at 1:03 PM

      LOL! Not like he can corroborate with a story of where he was… Tape don’t lie, he hasn’t been at this series at all!

      You win the comments

      • kinggw - Apr 29, 2014 at 1:19 PM

        Agreed. Can’t stop laughing.

  12. azarkhan - Apr 29, 2014 at 1:03 PM

    “This also happened to Nick Young recently (not during a playoff game, he played for the Lakers last season).”

    Nice way to twist the knife!

  14. blackman24 - Apr 29, 2014 at 1:23 PM

    That might explain why Roy Hibbert disappeared from the floor during the game. Hibbert is robbing the Pacers for millions of dollars now he is robbing his own teammates

  15. deeballer - Apr 29, 2014 at 1:30 PM

    The Ring God didn’t think he deserved the ring in the first place and realize they made a mistake so they sent someone to repo it.

    • jimeejohnson - Apr 29, 2014 at 4:38 PM

      Now I know what happened to mine. Ring God: I will make a sacrifice in the form of CantonBound’s pea brain! It’s small and non-functional but it’s still a brain.

  16. packergator - Apr 29, 2014 at 1:55 PM

    Turnabout’s fair play – they’ve been stealing from their fans for the last three months.

  17. cubb1 - Apr 29, 2014 at 3:05 PM

    These are probably the same criminals that kidnapped Roy Hibbert 3 months ago.

  18. lalifer - Apr 29, 2014 at 4:15 PM

    His last $20. He went home and couldn’t even order pizza. Damn.

  19. jimeejohnson - Apr 29, 2014 at 4:37 PM

    He’ll miss that $20.

  20. john242322 - Apr 30, 2014 at 12:25 PM

    Hawks are always getting lucky somehow. Not that Pacers are playing well or anything but last win, Teague steps out of bounds and hits a huge ridiculous 3 in a key moment. Now this game, Scott comes off the bench draining 3 after 3. What else? Hawks are playing way above their level
