Paul George re-signing with the Oklahoma City Thunder was something just about everyone, myself included, though was a pipe dream. No way George re-signs with the Thunder after pushing his way out of Indiana because he wanted to return “home” and play for the Lakers.
But at the crack of midnight on Sunday the news came forward that George would indeed be re-signing with the Thunder, in fact he agreed on a four-year deal worth around $137 million. It seems Sam Presti and crew also through in the tears of the entire Lakers fan base in the deal as well because “We didn’t want you anyway” Twitter was in full force.
Here is a look back at the No Way Paul George Re-Signs tweets that now live on in cold take infamy.
Here is the always right Jason McIntyre proclaiming there is no shot.

Whose waiting for the tweets from Woj saying, “ LeBron James and Paul George agree to team up in Los Angeles to play for the Lakers”. “Kawhi Leonard has been traded to the Los Angeles Lakers”

Sometimes you shouldn’t trust that gut feeling.
I have a feeling LeBron, Paul George, and Deandre Jordan will be Lakers next year. Just a feeling.

Paul George will be renting a house in OKC not buying. You all get that, right?
