Phoenix Suns swingman Gerald Green has a good three-point shot and great hops.
What he doesn’t have is 10 fingers. Well, 10 full fingers.
You may not know this, but Green is missing the majority of his right ring finger. He lost it during an accident when he was in sixth grade attempting to dunk on a makeshift basketball hoop. He was wearing a ring at the time, it got caught on a nail and ripped his finger apart.
Anyway, it clearly hasn’t stopped Green from going on to a successful career in the NBA, and has become a badge of honor of sorts. In fact, the Suns are going to honor Green and his missing digit with a foam finger.
Always fun when a crazy idea you threw out in a meeting becomes reality. pic.twitter.com/4sez9gJXWZ
