You don’t mess with a guy with two first names. You don’t mess with a guy who is comfortable showing up to a basketball game in green pants or a pink shirt to match his pink foams. You don’t mess with a rising (literally) NBA star. That oddly described individual is Paul George and those messages are for the odd individual with his own theme song courtesy of Shaquille O’Neal: “Birdman, Birdman, Birdman!”
In the final seconds of the third quarter of Game 2, PG13 blew past LeBron James then threw down a nasty XXX rated facial over the Birdman, who tried to take flight but was grounded. The contrast of expressions and reactions from the Pacers bench and the stunned Miami Heat crowd was classic. The dunk was the dunk of the playoffs so far and sure to also become a classic we will revisit on it’s anniversary.
