Sports News Without Access, Favor, Or Discretion

Atlanta Hawks swingman Thabo Sefolosha hasn’t revealed much since he broke his leg while the NYPD arrested him, and today’s statement released through the team doesn’t go into much detail, but he did publicly hold the police responsible for the injury he suffered.

Most of Sefolosha’s message is unremarkable, but the last sentence is key: “I will simply say that I am in great pain, have experienced a significant injury and that the injury was caused by the police.”


The NBA’s players union has already voiced their displeasure with the treatment of Sefolosha, and the NYPD has reportedly started an internal affairs investigation into the officers’ actions.
