Nearly 24 hours after being traded to the Los Angeles Clippers, Paul George said his goodbyes to OKC, the Thunder, and Russell Westbrook.
George wrote a lengthy post on Instagram saying, "Thank you Oklahoma for 2 great years, you took me in as one of your own from the day I touched down. Thank you to the fans who make representing those 3 letters mean something. Thank you to Sam and Clay for being the best management a franchise and player could ask for. Thank you to the friends within the organization that took care of my family and I whenever we needed help. The picture shown is a bond that can’t be broken I truly loved and enjoyed the race from start to finish. Thank you OKLAHOMA! You already know what it is @russwest44! Love brodie!"
Despite the questions about how the trade impacts Russell Westbrook, he quickly replied to the post saying, "Love Brodie!! You know what it is! 🏁💯"
