On the Short Story Long podcast Paul George commented that "L.A. was pissed with me. I didn't give Magic [Johnson] a meeting, which I understand. But at that point, I knew I wanted to give it another shot [with the Thunder]. I didn't want to prolong it and waste people's time."
P.G. to L.A. was one of the most widely anticipated moves this summer in free agency, especially after the Lakers signed LeBron James early on, but it was not to be. George was the No. 16 ranked player in 8/9-cat last season, and without Carmelo Anthony's usage in the way, he'll have a good chance to beat that ranking this season as he reprises his role playing off of Russell Westbrook.
