Former Louisville guard Chris Jones shot in Memphis last night

Former University of Louisville point guard Chris Jones was shot Tuesday night on a basketball court in his hometown of Memphis.

Steve Forbes, Jones’ former junior college coach at Northwest Florida State, told CBSSports.com that the injuries are not life-threatening. The report says he was shot in the leg after a fight on the court led to gunfire.

You probably best remember Jones as the UofL guard who performed the worst flop in the history of basketball in the Kentucky game. He was later dismissed from the Louisville program in February that same season and has spent the last two years playing professionally overseas.

    I bet he didn’t go down as fast as he did when Dakari ‘hit’ him.

    Dakari got fouled by three U of L players on that rebound with no call.

    I was playing pickup at Seneca one time and a dude said he had a shotgun in his trunk, and threatened me and my friends that he was going to get it — because we beat his team. Literally no other reason. Stuff like this is exactly why I just hoop with my buds now. Crazies out there.

    A few people said he should be shot for a flop like that. I don’t think they thought his homeboy in Memphis would actually do it!
