Paul George explained why he left the Indiana Pacers in a Knuckleheads podcast with Quentin Richardson and Darius Miles. George suggests the best power forward in the NBA in 2017 wanted to join the Pacers to play with George. “I ain’t gon’ say the names, because I’m going to keep their business private, I’ma just say it like this,” said George. “I had at the time, the best power forward saying he wanted to come to Indy and team up with me. “They’re like, ‘we’re a mid-major, we’re a small market, like, we can’t do it, we’re a small market, we can’t afford that.’ I’m like the best power forward wants to come play here, like, y’all can’t make that work? They didn’t want to do it.”
