Pacers guard/forward Paul George managed to play a complete game Monday night against the Bulls without taking a single photo of his genitals or impregnating a stripper. Both exercises in self control represent a season-high for the young star.
“Very rarely does an NBA player go through more than one controversy at the same time,” said ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith, referring to George’s recent “catfishing” incident that resulted in naked selfies circulating online and rumors that he allegedly offered a Miami stripper $1 million to terminate their pregnancy. “The fact that George was able to avoid drama during Monday’s game in Chicago is an accomplishment that should not go unnoticed.”
Added Smith: “Sure his Pacers lost by 12, but at least he kept his junk in his pants.”
