Shawn Bradley performed at Sports Illustrated

Some items of note from the piece:

Story Highlights:

  • The story details how his paralysis — he is paralyzed from the chest down — is made even more difficult because of his 7-foot-6, 350-pound frame (the story says such a situation is “without precedent in modern medical history”).

  • Regarding a meeting with former Dallas Mavericks teammate Michael Finley, Bradley said, “It’s hard for me to let them see me like this. It’s the challenge of remembering what once was … and knowing it’ll never be the same.”
    On being able to transfer from his motorized wheelchair to his bed and back, Bradley said, “That’s something we all think is possible. We’re not there yet — but we’re getting there.”
    His wife Carrie said, “It’s not just the person that’s involved in the accident,” Carrie says. “It’s a domino effect. Our family has been forever changed.”
    The Bradleys plan to relocate from Utah to Dallas.
    Bradley is now able to feed himself with special utensils after not being able to following the accident.
    Bradley is “determined” to help others in similar situations and wants to help educate on the importance of bicycle safety.
