Breaking News: Kenny George Has Foot Amputated.

Posted by Bob Biscigliano

Sad news came out of Asheville, North Carolina today. Kenny George, the 7'7 senior, freak of nature center from UNC-Asheville, had part of his right foot amputated about three weeks ago due to complications with MRSA, a difficult to treat and sometimes life-threatening antibiotic-resistant staph infection.

I've learned that the disease is usually spread by skin-to-skin contact or sharing an item used by an infected person, particularly one with an open wound. There is no word as to how he contracted the disease.

George, who was clearly on his way to the NBA because of his height, is supposedly going to return to school to finish his degree in mass communications.

It's unfortunate we will not see him play basketball. It was always a treat to see him take two steps to walk the length of the court and then reach up to dunk without ever leaving his feet. Best of luck, Kenny.
