"Without the setbacks, the comebacks aren’t as sweet."

After suffering a devastating leg injury in Team USA's scrimmage last week, Paul George is recovering from surgery in a Las Vegas hospital. Showing support for one of their own, Nike Basketball has just released an inspirational ad, anticipating that George's best years are still ahead of him.

Last season, George averaged a career high in scoring, made his second All-Star Team and was named 1st Team All Defense and 3rd Team All-NBA. Doctors are positive about his recovery, but he'll likely miss the entire 2014-2015 NBA season.

Check out Nike's ad for George and comment below.
