Could the Thunder have back-to-back MVPs?

Paul George, the All-Star forward who was traded to the Thunder this summer, was at the unveiling of the new Thunder statement jerseys Friday (I like the OKC ones).

While there he spoke to NBATV and was asked about the MVP.

Can George put up the numbers it would take playing next to Russell Westbrook? Possibly. How well those two stars mesh will determine if George has a shot at postseason awards (and how good the Thunder are in general). Goerge says he is there to help Westbrook.

All that with the “is he going to the Lakers next summer?” question hanging over his head all season. It’s going to be an interesting season in Oklahoma City.

At least the new uniform look is sweet.
