Ex-Knicks SG Alexey Shved hospitalized after being severely beaten outside of a restaurant in Moscow

Former Knicks star and CSKA Moscow guard Alexey Shved was recently hospitalized in Moscow after being attacked by a hooligan outside a restaurant. The attack left him with a serious head injury, and he had to be taken to the hospital by ambulance.

In a statement released by CSKA Moscow, the team confirmed the incident and expressed their support for Shved. “Our team’s guard Alexey Shved suffered from a hooligan attack committed on him last night at the exit of one of the Moscow restaurants.

Alexey suffered a serious head injury as a result of a fall and was taken to the hospital by ambulance. The player contacted the police to investigate the incident. Due to the injury, Shved will not be able to take part in the next games of the team. We wish Alexey a speedy recovery.”

Shved’s teammates and coaches visited him in the hospital, where he is seen wearing a neck brace but appears to be recovering well. The incident has sparked an investigation by authorities, with Shved himself lending a hand.

Shved returned to CSKA Moscow in 2021 after spending six seasons with Khimki Moscow. He started his career with CSKA, playing for the team from 2006 to 2012 before moving to the NBA. The attack has left Shved unable to take part in his team’s upcoming third-place seven-game playoff series against Zenit Saint Petersburg.

Fans and fellow players have expressed their shock and concern over the incident, with many taking to social media to wish Shved a speedy recovery. One fan wrote, “Sending love and healing vibes to Alexey Shved. Nobody deserves to be attacked like that. Get well soon.” Another fan added, “What a terrible thing to happen to a player who has given so much to the sport. We’re all thinking of you, Alexey, and hoping for a full and speedy recovery.”

The attack on Shved highlights the dangers that athletes can face both on and off the court, and serves as a reminder of the importance of safety measures and security protocols.

Ex-Knicks Alexey Shved’s NBA Stint and Return to Europe: Exploring the Factors Behind His Decision

Alexey Shved’s basketball career began with CSKA Moscow in 2006. He played for the team until 2010 when he declared for the NBA draft but went undrafted. He returned to CSKA until 2012 when he signed with the Minnesota Timberwolves.

During his time with the Timberwolves, Shved played for two years and averaged 6.5 points, 1.8 rebounds and 2.5 assists per game. He was then traded to the Philadelphia 76ers in 2014, where he played for 17 games and averaged 9.9 ppg, 1.3 rpg and 2.7 apg. Shved was then traded to the Houston Rockets, where he played in nine games, averaging 3.2 points.

Later that season, he was traded again to the New York Knicks. His best stint in the NBA was with the Knicks, where he played in 16 games and posted 14.8 points, 4.6 rebounds, and 3.6 assists. However, he decided to return to Russia rather than sign another NBA contract.

In a 2015 interview with the VTB League, Shved revealed that the constant trades were a factor in his decision to return to Europe rather than stay in the NBA. “Today you’re in one city, tomorrow you get a call that you need to move somewhere new and join a new team. I didn’t always like my situation,” Shved said. Despite having offers from Spanish and Turkish EuroLeague teams, he wanted to play at home.
