Shawn Bradley now paralysed
Very sad news for the 7'6" giant who spent a couple of years living in Australia doing missionary work before being drafted by Philadelphia.
It's hard to forget Shawn Bradley — all 7’6″ of him — if you watched him play for the Dallas Mavericks (or Philadelphia 76ers, or New Jersey Nets) during his eventful 12-year NBA career. Through a lot of ups and downs, he played the game with joy — you could see it in his face.
Bradley announced Wednesday that he suffered a traumatic spinal cord injury in a bicycle accident a block from home in St. George, Utah, which has left him paralyzed.
