Monday night sucked for Paul George.

He went to work Monday night and his Pacers got stomped by a better shooting, better prepared Atlanta Hawks team that is playing with passion and like a unit. The Pacers legionary collapse is on the verge of becoming a reality.

Then he got home to find his home had been burglarized while he was out.

Among the items taken was his All-Star ring, reports the Indianapolis Star.

A diamond-studded NBA All-Star ring, worth about $15,000, was among the items stolen from Indiana Pacers player Paul George during a burglary Monday night…. Aside from the ring, a $700 Flux watch, a pair of red Jordan 4 Toro tennis shoes and $20 also were missing, according to an Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department report.

The report also says there was no forced entry.

This also happened to Nick Young recently (not during a playoff game, he played for the Lakers last season). It happened to Chris Bosh last year.

Note to NBA players: Alarm systems. You are gone for extended periods of time for work, alarm systems are good investments. Also, try locking your doors and windows. Just a thought.
