Indiana Pacers star Paul George is just four days into what is expected to be a lengthy recovery from a compound fracture in his right leg suffered during a Team USA scrimmage, so he needs a reason to smile.
So, Los Angeles-based luxury car company Roadstarr Motosports furnished a Ferrari 458 Italia Spider for the recovering NBA All-Star. He posted a picture of the impressive machinery on Instagram with the caption:
Shoutout my guy @roadstarrmotorsports for gettin me right again.. He hooked this one up! Although I can’t drive for a while I can still look at it!!! #FerrariBoyz #458 #OneofOne #CantWaitToGetBetter #AlwaysWantedOne #Italia #DreamCar #NowIGotIt #Blessed
As George notes in his social media share, it'll be some time before he can put enough pressure on the gas to get this thing going, but at least he feels "right again" and "blessed" after that horrific injury. In the meantime, whoever gets to drive George home from the hospital is one lucky person.
It's unclear how the Ferrari came to be in George's possession, but this model starts at $257,412. Considering George's five-year, $91.6 million extension kicked in this summer, he can afford it. Or maybe Floyd Mayweather dropped it off as a get well soon gift during his recent hospital visit. Either way, enjoy.
