Paul George 2022: Net worth, salary and endorsements

Seven-time NBA All-star Paul George was born on May 2, 1990, in Palmdale, California. He played high school basketball for Knight High School and then two seasons of college basketball at Fresno State, before being selected by the Indiana Pacers as the 10th overall pick of the 2010 NBA draft.

After staying with the Pacers for seven seasons, George was traded to Oklahoma City Thunder. He played two seasons in Oklahoma before he started the 2019/20 NBA season with Los Angeles Clippers.

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 in his first year, 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 superior star power, the Thunder were simply outclassed by Damian Lillard and the Blazers. 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 43.5% from the field, and garnered the nickname 'Pandemic P'. The Clippers blew a 3-1 lead as George had a horrendous performance in Game 7.

But the now 32-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 franchise's first-ever Conference Finals. While George's brilliant form continued, the Phoenix Suns comfortably beat the short-handed LAC.

With Leonard out for the 2021-22 season, the Clippers were reliant on 'PG' to shine for them. However, George faced many injury issues throughout the season and could only suit up for 31 regular season games. The Clippers still managed to finish 8th and clinch a Play-In spot but they couldn't make the Playoffs after losing to the Timberwolves and the Pelicans. George's absence proved to be vital.
