Paul George pokes fun at himself by taking to Instagram to say his fiancée got a ring before he could win an NBA championship.
The Los Angeles Clippers were the most hyped up team going into the 2019-20 NBA season. With the Clippers signing reigning Finals MVP Kawhi Leonard and MVP candidate Paul George, expectations were through the roof for the Clips.
However, their whole season came crashing down in merely the 2nd round as they blew a 3-1 lead to the Denver Nuggets. Paul George was especially miserable, notching just 10 points in game 7.
His abysmal performances earned him the nickname ‘Pandemic P’ and he was continuously bashed online.
Now, with wedding bells in the near future for George, he looks to find some levity in it all.
