Paul George opened up about how he would have handled being teammates with someone like Michael Jordan.

The star of the Los Angeles Clippers said he would not have a problem with that.

“You know what, I wouldn’t have had a hard time with that. I grew up with watching Kobe, right? I gained an appreciation with his will to win and his fieriness. Me being in Indiana, that’s kind of what I wanted to be.

I wanted to be an enforcer to let people know I wanted to win and win at all costs. So I admired watching MJ during his documentary. I would have loved to play with a guy like that,” George told Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
