The latest episode of Cold As Balls: Cold Calls from Kevin Hart’s Laugh Out Loud featured the Los Angeles Clippers star Paul George who, among other things, talked about his relationship with Russell Westbrook and how it was leaving the Thunder. Last summer, the Clippers made a blockbuster move, by getting both Kawhi Leonard and Paul George.

“I love Russ as a brother. I have so much love for Russ. That was the first phone call after I had word of what was going on and the possibility of leaving. And I had that call with him and he supported me 100 percent. We talked it out. We made moves necessary to go elsewhere,” George told Hart.
