Paul George made his NBA debut on the 27th of October in 2010 against the San Antonio Spurs. He didn’t make much of an impact in the first two seasons, after making his debut. George mostly played in the shooting guard position from 2010-2012.
It was in the 2012-13 that he started making his presence felt. George moved to the small forward position due to Danny Granger missing the majority of the season (following an injury).
George was excellent that season, and helped the Pacers go all the way to the Eastern Conference finals, only to be beaten by Miami Heat. He was named in the All-NBA Third Team that year.
In the next season George continued where he left off. The season was more of an action replay of the 2012-13 season. George once again helped the Pacers move to the Eastern Conference Finals, to be beaten once again by a surging Miami Heat.
Just like in the year 2012-13 he was once again named in the All-NBA Third Team.
2014-15 turned out to be nightmarish for George as he suffered a serious off-season injury that had him sidelined for the majority of the season.
He came back strongly during the 2015-16 season. He helped the Pacers reach yet another playoffs. They lost to Toronto Raptors.
During the 2016-17 season, George had several 30+ point games, and eventually helped the Pacers reach their sixth playoffs in seven years. They would go on to lose their first-round play off matchup against Cleveland Cavaliers.
The 2017-18 season saw Paul George traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder in exchange for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.
With the help of George, the Thunder reached the playoffs of the Western Conference that year, but bowed out in the first-round playoffs against Utah Jazz.
The 18-19 season saw George help OKC to yet another playoff spot. But the team failed to get past the first-round as they lost to the Portland Trailblazers.
In the 19-20 season George was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers. He had a season to forget. Although, the team made it to the playoffs, George’s dismal performance in the playoffs earned him the nickname ‘Pandemic P’ – in reference to his earlier self-proclaimed nickname ‘Playoff P’.
This year, 2020-21 season, the Clippers have made it to Western Conference Finals, for the first time in their history.
