The LA Clippers have been having a decent enough season, working their way forward even without Kawhi Leonard on the roster.

George, however, seems to be looking for some other kind of fun while on the road. The 31-year-old even looked happy, excited about the team being away for a while. Let’s take a look at what George was carrying as the Clippers get ready to face the Memphis Grizzlies.
