Paul George has blocked off users from commenting on his Instagram pictures following all the hate he has been receiving for his ‘Pandemic P’ playoff performances.
The Clippers star has been at the centre of all the hate from Clippers fans, owing to his dismal showing in the NBA Playoffs. With the Clippers stacked up against a highly talented Mavs side, fans had expected the ‘PG-Kawhi’ duo to brush aside the ‘Doncic-Porzingis’ challenge.
And while the series is still in the balance, it seems as if the Mavs could run away with this, if Paul George does not come good offensively.
Paul George blocks comments on his Instagram
Kawhi has had to shoulder a lot of the offensive burden, as Paul George has the worst Field Goal percentage amongst all players that have taken at least 25 shots in the playoffs this year.
Owing to that fans had started bombarding his Instagram with hate comments, due to which he has had to block all of them off. It seems as if the playoff pressure on and off the court is getting to him and he needs some time away from all the criticism to come good.
However, with the 2 days turnaround time in the Bubble, the Clippers will have to ensure Paul George is in the right frame of mind soon, or else, the series could drift away from them very quickly.
