Paul George

After seven years with the Pacers, Paul George wants out of Indiana and hopes to land with the Lakers in 2018. Naturally, that report has rubbed many Pacers fans the wrong way, leading one clothing store in Indianapolis to give away all of its PG13 apparel for free.

We made a couple of updates to the website. Have at it. #byepg13

Sorry, folks. Everything has already sold out, including Paul George himself if you ask some Pacers fans.

George had a good run in Indiana, making two Eastern Conference Finals and even taking LeBron James’ Heat to seven games in 2013. Sure, he’s said some inflammatory comments about the franchise that probably never should have left his mouth. But you can’t blame him for wanting out as he sees other stars have bigger success elsewhere.

The Pacers haven’t made it past the first round of the playoffs in three years, and they have no clear direction with a relatively old roster filled with average talent.
