Paul George on free agency: ‘I hope I make the majority of the people happy’
But he can sign with only one team this summer.
George, via ESPN:
Even Kevin Durant – the ultimate people pleaser – went into his 2016 free agency stating a need to be selfish and separate himself from Russell Westbrook while considering options. (Durant didn’t fully abide by that, but at least he set a tone.)
There are 30 teams in the NBA. About 29 of them won’t be happy with George after this summer. Even if he picks the Lakers and their large fan base, the math is working against him.
If George reconciles that, maybe he won’t find free agency so stressful.
