Paul George on learning he was traded to Oklahoma City: “It f*cked me up”

Paul George was a guest on the latest episode of Cold As Balls: Cold Calls from Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud, in which he revealed his initial feelings of frustration after being traded from Indiana to Oklahoma City. He joined the Thunder on July 6, 2017, via a trade in exchange for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.

The 30-year-old forward recently shared a story ον how he decided to leave the Pacers. He asked to be traded after Indiana refused to trade for “the best power forward” in the NBA. Reportedly, it was Anthony Davis.

“OKC honestly came out the blue…When my agent called me and told me ‘I think you’re going to Oklahoma’ It f*cked me up. No knock on Oklahoma but I’ve been in Indy for seven years. Indy is lowkey, it’s quiet. I didn’t think it can get quieter than there. So I was a little f*cked up when he said Oklahoma,” the Clippers star said.
