Anyone that’s ever watched the E-league series that airs on TBS and still doesn’t think it’s a real sport, well here’s one more story in favor of that that says otherwise.
I mean, how can it not be a real sport when players actually get injured doing it?
And I don’t mean a hangnail or carpal tunnel syndrome—I’m talking an actual broken hand.
That’s what happened to two sport athlete Joel Berry II—and by that I mean he plays both for the UNC tar Heels basketball team and competitive video gaming.
And it’s that second game that led to him breaking his hand on a door after losing a video game to the team manager.
Yeah and I’m guessing his head coach Roy Williams is none too thrilled about that after learning earlier this week that the broken bone in his right hand will cost Berry the first month of the season.
And the team will miss the man that averaged 14.7-points and 3.6-assists per game last season and was even named the Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four after he scored 22 points to lead UNC to a win over Gonzaga in the national championship game.
Oh yeah, he was also named an ESPN preseason First-Team All-American.
Although right now I’m sure Tar Heel teammates are calling him a first-rate idiot.
