Paul George: Not 'Championship or Bust' in OKC

Paul George

The league said the tampering stemmed from inappropriate communications between Lakers general manager Rob Pelinka and George's agent, Aaron Mintz. "That's not my focus". It was an experience that George after the game voiced much pleasure in being able to play in front of his parents and five or six of his close friends in attendance at Staples Center.

In mid-June, George told the Pacers he would not re-sign in IN when his free agency arrives in 2018 and that his preferred destination was to play in Los Angeles. He has since said one of the reasons he told IN management he didn't plan on coming back a year IN advance was to help the Pacers get something for him. On Monday, Jordan Clarkson led the team with 20 points off the bench, Julius Randle added 15 points while Brandon Ingram chipped in with 14 points as the Lakers lost to the Timberwolves by 114-96. "I would love to go back home and play for my city".

"I've got a lot to think about", George told ESPN prior to Wednesday's game. There wasn't a gunpoint to the head 'send me here, ' I just stated somewhere I wanted to go play. "You could see, they got basket after basket, we had no resistance on them on the defensive end and offensive end. I would have loved to go back home and play for my city, so no regrets at all".

"So, no regrets at all".

Back to George. Suddenly, the once-struggling Oklahoma City Thunder are 20-17. "Westbrook was joined by teammate Nick Collison and Thunder assistant Royal Ivey and apparently "[asked] Durant what he could do differently" to get the eight-time All-Star to stay. Previous year boasted Westbrook's solo act. George will also continue his good form, wreaking havoc at both ends of the floor, while Anthony appears to have accepted his role as third fiddle in what is an important development for the Thunder.

It can act as another reminder to George that "forever" is a complicated concept in the National Basketball Association.

"It comes down to being just grateful and happy where you're at", George said of evaluating future options.

George feels this story is what it is and he cares less about the attention it draws. You never know. You've just got to be grateful and live in the moment. It's best to stick with what we have and work on building. We've only been together a couple of months. He can, and is expected to, exercise his player option and opt out of the final year of his contract and enter unrestricted free agency this summer.

George grew up in Palmdale, about 60 miles north of Los Angeles.
