Paul George dunks on LeBron James while mic’d up (Video)

Paul-George-dunks-on-LeBronPaul George provided us with one of the best highlights of Wednesday night’s heavyweight bout between the Indiana Pacers and Miami Heat when he dunked on LeBron James. George went coast-to-coast in the fourth quarter with Indiana trailing by three and took it right past LeBron for the slam.

The best part about the play? George was mic’d up, so we literally got a chance to hear what it sounds like when LeBron gets dunked on. The Pacers held off the Heat down the stretch and won a defensive struggle by a score of 84-83. We fully expect these two teams to meet again in the Eastern Conference Finals.

Paul George wears atrocious leather outfit

Paul George leather outfit

Looks like Paul George is trying to give Russell Westbrook and Dwyane Wade a run for worst-dressed athlete in the league.

After his Indiana Pacers lost to the Chicago Bulls 89-77 on Monday night, George shared the above photo on his Instagram account. Yes, that’s George wearing a leather shirt, leather pants, gold-spiked shoes and a chain over his blank long sleeve undershirt. He’s tucked in at his waste and his boots.

I think all he needed was an eye patch to complete the look. Seriously though, that is just atrocious, Paul. Turrible, just turrible.

The best comment of all, though, came from a commenter on George’s Instagam, who wrote: “And you spend your money on that instead of condoms..?”

That zinger of course is a reference to this story.

We’re thinking he’d be much better off sticking to nude selfies.

Paul George allegedly catfished, sent nude pictures to gay man

Paul George nude selfie picture

Paul George appears to be the latest athlete caught up in a catfishing scandal.

According to MediaTakeOut, George was tricked into sending some selfies, including at least one nude picture, to a gay man posing as a “buxom blonde” online.

The person who tricked George doesn’t have many details on his/her website, but the Tumblr site is loaded with selfies from famous people the person allegedly has catfished in the past. In addition to George, Kenyon Martin and Lil Romeo also have allegedly been catfished by this con man.

It really sucks for these people to get caught up in this sort of thing. I mean if you’re famous, you’re already a target for stuff and have to be careful. So if you’re going to flirt over social media, this can be one of the unfortunate consequences. Maybe stick to meeting women in person?

Paul George addresses rumor he impregnated stripper

Paul-George-PacersOn Wednesday, a report surfaced claiming that Indiana Pacers star Paul George impregnated a stripper over the summer. The woman, who is named Daniela according to Baller Alert, is allegedly seven months pregnant and recently revealed on Instagram that she is having a girl. The most damning part of the report is the assertion that George offered Daniela $1 million to have an abortion.

If George did make the offer, Daniela obviously declined. In a statement to TMZ Sports on Friday, George did not rule out that he is the father of the child.

“If and when there is legal confirmation that I am the father, I will fully embrace my responsibilities,” he said. “This is a personal matter that is still being sorted out, so I hope you can respect my privacy. ”

However, the 23-year-old’s spokesman claimed that George did not offer Daniela $1 million to get an abortion.

“There is no truth to the rumors that Paul offered money for [Daniela] not to have the child,” the spokesman said.

TMZ also cited a source who says the relationship between George and Daniela is “amicable” and that they envision it remaining that way. It should also be noted that George supposedly dates Doc Rivers’ daughter Callie Rivers. You have to wonder if their relationship is still amicable.

Paul George does 360 windmill dunk off steal (Video)

If you like jaw-dropping dunks, then you’ll love what Paul George did against the Los Angeles Clippers on Saturday night.

With his Indiana Pacers up by 20 in the fourth quarter, George stepped into a passing lane and stole the ball on a pass from Darren Collison. He had nobody in front of him, so he decided to rock a Vince Carter-style dunk. George did a 360 windmill dunk to punctuate a great win for the Pacers.

And, yes, he really did that in a game. Not a dunk contest, but a game. Wow.

Now here’s Vince Carter doing it in the 2000 Slam Dunk Contest:

Paul George thought LeBron James fouled him on final play (Video)

Paul-George-LeBron-James-foulThe Miami Heat defeated the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night in a classic game that could very well have been an Eastern Conference Finals preview. The Heat won 97-94, but not before Paul George was given a look at a game-tying 3-pointer as time expired. Was he fouled on the play?

George came off a screen to gain just enough separation from LeBron James to have a look at the basket. LeBron, who had to recover on the play, appeared to grab George by the waist. It’s unclear if the contact was enough to alter the shot, but there’s no debating that LeBron had his hands on George while the Pacers star was in the air. George was furious that there was no call.

Iman Shumpert called for questionable foul on Paul George (Video)

The New York Knicks looked like they were going to pull off an impressive home win over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday until a questionable foul was called in the final 10 seconds.

The Knicks were up 89-86 with just under 10 seconds left and the Pacers inbounding the ball. Paul George threw in the pass then got the ball back and attempted a tying three. His shot was an airball well off the mark, but the referees called Iman Shumpert for fouling him on the shot. That gave George three free-throw attempts, which he made to tie the game.

On the next possession, Carmelo Anthony went 1-on-1 against George and did not get a foul call as he missed a jumper in the paint, sending the game to OT. The Pacers went on to win the game easily in OT 103-96.

Here’s a close-up look at the amount of contact made by Shump on George:
