"When I first fell in love with the game and I'm outside playing in front of the house, I'm not picturing myself in an in jersey or picturing myself in a Thunder jersey", said George, who played his first seven seasons for the Pacers.

Paul George, long rumored to headed to the Los Angeles Lakers after being traded to Oklahoma City a year ago, decides to return to play with Russell Westbrook & Co.


George agreed to a four-year, maximum contract worth $137 million.

If this all works out and the Thunder do bring George back, it will be a massive success for Oklahoma City.

According to a KOCO 5 News report in Oklahoma City, the National Basketball Association star chose to stay with the Thunder for another season. George was shown sipping some wine with Dwyane Wade, and that's when he revealed the following.


For the Thunder, they'll not only be making money with the duo of Westbrook and George, they'll be spending it. George and Westbrook will cost over $30 million each. They get LeBron and Paul George and add another star somewhere in between?

George said then that he didn't yet know what he would do.

The Lakers seemed to be the frontrunners in the Paul George sweepstakes this week. But, I think there is a sense right now that the original plan is not in play right now. He gives the Mavericks a rebounding and shot-blocking presence they've lacked since winning their only title in 2011.


The Thunder took a gamble last offseason in acquiring George from the Indiana Pacers with no assurances that he would stick around.
