Paul George compared his former teammate in the Oklahoma City Thunder Russell Westbrook to the legendary Michael Jordan.

The star of the Los Angeles Clippers said Westbrook has the same competitive spirit that Jordan used to have.

“A lot of tendencies that I see in MJ, I see that same fieriness in a guy that I played with Russ. Russ wants to win at all costs and you love him as a teammate. He’s a guy that every time he touches that floor he wants to win and he’s going to give everything he has. And I admire that,” George told Adrian Wojnarowski of ESPN.
