Paul George with OKC Thunder

After playing for the Pacers for 7 long seasons, PG13 knew he needed a change in scenery. A trade to OKC Thunder followed. Paired up alongside Russell Westbrook, George truly showed his incredible potential in his second season.

After a disappointing first round exit against the Utah Jazz, PG was a man on a mission. Averaging 28.0 points, 8.2 rebounds and 4.1 assists per game, PG13 was one of the top candidates for the MVP trophy in the 2018-19 season.

But the playoffs certainly were a very big disappointment yet again. Despite having the superior star power, the Thunder were simply outclassed by Damian Lillard and the Thunder. With the team's exit, George's exit followed and in came the Clippers.

Paul George with LA Clippers

After acquiring arguably the biggest free agent in Kawhi Leonard, the Clippers knew they had to add another star. In a clear win now move, LAC gave away some of their most talented young players and multiple picks to add George.

While the duo of Kawhi and George looked decent in the regular season, PG13 had a post-season run to forget. In the second round of the playoffs against the Nuggets, George only averaged 21.7 points, 5.4 rebounds and 3.6 assists shooting a horrendous 43.5% from the field and was even called Pandemic P.

But the now 31-year-old certainly redeemed himself in the 2020-21 playoffs. While the team lost Kawhi Leonard through injury in the middle of the second round, it was PG who led the Clippers all the way to the Conference Finals. While George's brilliant form continued, a stacked Suns roster comfortably beat LAC.

With Leonard out for the 2021-22 season, the Clippers have been reliant on 'PG' to shine for them. And he has been putting up encouraging numbers.
