Pacers have NO choice in terrible Paul George trade and for OKC it was even worse! “Delusional”

The old hustlas used to always tell a boy to never show your hand in these streets! Never let a boy know that you’re desperate because he’ll get you every time. It’s even worse when two desperate cats run into each other in a dark alley close to midnight. On Friday night the Indiana Pacers finally found a sucker to unload Paul George to. They saw the Oklahoma City Thunder gettin’ out of the ride down the street!!! In a deal just before the trade deadline the Pacers swapped PG13 for Victor Oladipo and Domantas Sabonis.

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! Considerin’ the position the Pacers were in they had no choice but to move ole boy for some frosted penny cookies and a pack of Now and Laters. So whatever they were able to get at this point was a bonus because everybody and their baby’s momma was runnin’ from a Paul George rental for one season.

However, the deal that the Lakers were rumored to have offered was a better deal. Before the draft the duns out in Hollywood offered the Pacers the 27th and 28th pick plus Julius Randle and they turned it down. It wasn’t goin’ to get any better than that. At least in terms of even exchanges. Two first round draft picks and a player would have been a lot better than Oladipo and some dun that’s still tryin’ to find his way.

Okay, so they got rid of Paul George but what do you really have bruh? I’m just sayin’! Pritchard and Bird tried to act like they didn’t know that ole boy wasn’t stayin’ past the 2018 season but they knew just like everybody else in Indianapolis. They were bankin’ on him makin’ the All-NBA team and it farted in their faces.

If PG had made the team the Pacers would have been able to offer him the supermax deal of like $210 million! So there’s no way he would have dipped on that. But when that fell through they never had a chance of keepin’ him. So at that moment they should have been tryin’ to shop him and they weren’t.

Fast forward to Friday night, they finally found a sucka walkin’ down the street lookin’ lost and talked him into an even worse deal on the other end. They found a dun and fan base that was completely delusional thinkin’ that they’ve got more to offer a boy than they actually do.

OKC’s like, “Sure, we’ll take him for one year because we can talk him into stayin’ here once he plays with Russell Westbrook and he’ll love the city! It’ll be all good.”

First of all playboy, nobody loves playin’ with Russell Westbrook!! I bet Oladipo was sprintin’ up and down the street butt naked on Friday night when he found out that he’d been traded ANYWHERE. Why do you think KD bounced? Nobody wants to be wrestlin’ over the steerin’ wheel just to get shot opportunities. Oladipo probably told Indiana that he’d walk out here to get away from Young Russ.

Secondly, there is less to do in OKC than there is to do in Indianapolis!! Didn’t Paul George say that he wanted to go back to LA? Don’t think for one minute that by livin’ in Oklahoma for a year will change his mind on wantin’ to go back to Los Angeles, California. It’s HOLLYWOOD, Malibu, day parties, celebrities and all types of foolishness to get into. You can’t be that delusional to think that OKC is more appealin’ that LA. He’s not goin’ to win a title in either but he’ll have way more fun in LA.

There’s absolutely nothin’ to do in Oklahoma City bruh! That’s why the dun wanted out of Indiana! All he’s done is shifted southwest with less to do. Ain’t no way he’s goin’ to commit to stayin’ with the Thunder but that’s not the Pacers problem anymore now is it?  That’s Sam Presti’s problem.

Here’s another problem that OKC is lookin’ at but want to act like they don’t see. They just brought in a cat that’s from Southern California to play with a cat that’s from Southern California where they both could potentially bounce to go back to Southern California. We could actually see PG take off next summer and Young Russ dip with him.

And guess who else can show up in LA with them? LeBron James!!!

The only hope that OKC has in ole boy stayin’ is that Russ will probably make the All-NBA team and that guarantees him an offer of a five year supermax extension. However, the dun qualifies for a 10 year max next summer which would allow him to dip with PG if he wants to.

If you don’t think that playin’ in LA with PG and LeBron isn’t appealin’ you’re out of your mind.

It was a bad idea to put two cats together that are essentially from the same place that can both see that there’s nothin’ to do in OKC relative to LA and they both can leave after next summer. So now instead of one super star leavin’ you could have two. That’s a whole lot to gamble on bruh. But hey, that’s not the Pacers problem any more now is it? Stop me when I start lyin’!

Playas Thesaurus: 

1) Dun: noun – the person in question, dude, guy, etc. It’s whoever I’m talkin’ about and its non-gender specific.

2) Dip: verb – to leave

The G is excluded from the endings of all words because the G is near and dear to my heart because I’m from “The G” which is Gary, Indiana. So I only use the G when I’m talkin’ about “The G!”
