Paul George has more weight on his shoulders as he is expected to lead the Los Angeles Clippers since Kawhi Leonard is out due to a knee injury.

Most recently, the 31-year-old forward kept his team’s season going as he led the Clippers to Game 5 win in the Western Conference Finals series against the Phoenix Suns.

He had 41 points, 13 rebounds and 6 assists in 41 minutes of play as Los Angeles won 116-102. Former NBA champion Metta World Peace (currently Ron Sandiford-Artest) tweeted a hilarious tweet after George’s performance. “If Paul George wins a title this year, I rank him top 75 of all time,” he wrote.
