Paul George’s horrific leg break is hard to watch, so why am I watching it over and over again?

Like most people, watching Indiana Pacers small forward Paul George snap his lower right leg in two set off a loud ‘Ohhhhh’ upon watching it for the first time.

But for some strange reason, I can’t stop watching it again and again, even calling over people in the room to partake in some gasps like ‘hey, wanna see something gross?’… Call it the train wreck theory I guess.

Of course, in our GIF-obsessed internet world, it makes it quite easy to watch it over and over again – a continuous loop of morbid fascination…
