We all laughed earlier in the year when Paul George was on Jimmy Kimmel and read a mean tweet that said, “Personally I think Paul George could be traded for like hallf a bag of saltine crackers.” Everybody but Pacers fans laughed on Friday when the the Thunder traded Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis for Paul George; I’m not saying Dipo and the son of a legend are saltine crackers but they aren’t exactly Ritz crackers and Paul George is a Ritz (with the best hairline in the league).
Even though OKC might just be a temporary one-year stop until George finally makes La La Land his year round residence, it led to a lot of excitement in OKC and one great tweet from their police.
Equally great was this “Paul George Trade Group Chat with Russell Westbrook and Kevin Durant” by YouTube channel DD Toonz.
This is also a good time to revisit George dropping 45 on the Thunder last year.
And here’s some serious talk about George and the trade.
