Despite everything that’s happened to him in the last few days, Kevin Parrom is still flashing a sense of humor.
He tweeted at Isaiah Thomas, “Idk what hurts more your shot that went in at the end of the game or the 1 i got this weekend smh lol”
Thomas drained a buzzer beater last spring to lead Washington over Arizona in the Pac-10 championship game.
In a development first reported Sunday night by SNY.tv, Parrom was shot over the weekend in the right leg in his mother’s home in The Bronx in an apparent dispute over a woman.
No arrests have been made in the case, and Parrom has since flown back to Arizona from New York.
“Thank you to everybody who reached out to me showing love i love all of yall for that !!! Now its all about recovering! Zona Where U At ?!” he tweeted.
Parrom averaged 7.6 points and 3.4 rebounds last season for the Wildcats, who reached the Elite Eight of the NCAA Tournament.
“Kevin Parrom returned to Tucson last night [Monday],” Arizona coach Sean Miller said. “He will return to classes this week and also begin his rehabilitation process. We will know a lot more about his return to basketball activities in a month. At this time our focus is to provide him a comprehensive support system to allow him to progress to his full potential. Kevin, first and foremost, is fortunate to be alive.”
