Paul George Drops KCP & Gets “We Want Paul George” Chants From Lakers Fans
Is it obvious the Lakers and the city of Los Angeles want Paul George?
From tampering fines, to Wednesday’s trades, to giving him a standing ovation during player introductions to actually chanting “We want Paul George!” in the middle of a game, it’s very obvious they want PG-13 (and LeBron James) in a Lakers’ uniform next year.
For now, the Lakers are just going to have to settle with handing him a L and winning their fourth game in a row and 8th at home. Granted, George was playing without Westbrook and Melo but a 106-81 victory is a 106-81 victory!
In his one-man show, George scored a game-high 29 points (22 in the first half) and had the highlight of the night when he dropped Kentavious Caldwell-Pope with an ankle monitor breaking move before throwing a lob to Aquaman.
In KCP’s defense (no pun intended), if you look at the replay closely, it looks like George got away with a push.
