There is no bitterness from Paul George.

Thunder fans may feel very differently. Understandably. A year ago, George said he would stay, this summer he forced his way to Los Angeles to team up with his friend Kawhi Leonard. That’s a punch to the gut of Oklahoma City that has the Thunder organization thinking hard about tough choices and what comes next.

George, however, has nothing but love for OKC and said so in an Instagram post, which includes a Russell Westbrook shoutout.

George, no doubt, means every word.

That’s not going to stop Thunder fans from booing him when he returns in a Clippers’ uniform.
