With free agency drawing near, Thunder small forward Paul George has a big decision on his hands, and all eyes are on him with multiple views and a lot speculation surrounding the topic.
George released a three-part short series highlighting his free agency giving viewers an in-depth look at his thought process, and people had plenty to say about it.
Take a look at all that’s being said as NBA fans from all over anxiously wait to see where Paul George decides to continue his career:
Sources on ESPN: Oklahoma City Thunder star Paul George informs franchise that he is not opting into final year of his contract and will become an unrestricted free agent. https://t.co/skRquzhnjb

I don’t know if Paul George is staying in OKC or leaving, but anyone trying to spin him opting out as news doesn’t get it. Opting out just means he smartly wants more money. No matter who he plays for…. Nothing to see here folks. All of this was expected.

LeBron James, Paul George, and Kawhi Leonard is no doubt appealing for LA, and immediately puts the team in title contention, but trading all the young players (outside of Lonzo) seems unwise for what could be a short window of opportunity #Lakers

I know we here in Cleveland bemoan the possibility of only winning one ring with LeBron, but:
if Paul George leaves OKC, triggering a rebuild if someone offers a ton for Russell Westbrook, the Thunder will have lost KD, Harden and Russ with one Finals appearance to show for it

If the Lakers could pay Paul George 40M more than the Thunder, do you think there’s a chance in hell he would even consider staying? Uh, no. OKC’s only shot to keep him is the 💰edge. Stop with the Westbrook/PG are “really connecting now” nonsense.

Woj says on Sportcenter that Paul George became “comfortable” playing in OKC. Added he likes Sam Presti, Billy Donovan, and playing with Russell Westbrook. Woj says a year ago it was assured he was going to LA. Woj added, PG’s “thinking has changed” since then.
