Paul George Thinks People Were Gullible For Believing The Moving Truck Outside Of His House Was For Him
Huh, so it appears that I have been using the word "gullible" wrong for my entire life. Who knew? I mean, I thought "gullible" was a way to describe someone who can be easily coaxed into believing the unbelievable. Apparently it just means that you don't need to see his signature on the paperwork to put two and two together when a 'Penske' truck pulls up in front of the house of a professional athlete who has spent the last 2-3 months telling everyone that will listen about his inevitable, impending move to Los Angeles. Maybe Paul George is just covering his ass in case the Pacers stupidly decide to start the season with him on the roster, or maybe we all got tripped up by some tricky math. Whatever the case may be, if I'm gullible for believing that PG-13 would take preemptive precautions in the relocation process then I just l learned that I have no idea what gullible means.
I'm obviously no stranger to the concept of the media pushing convenient narratives in search of a story that may or may not be there. Hell, I often do the same in search of some humor that may or may not be there. Unfortunately for Paul George, this isn't a case of that happening. Honestly, this is just a case of poor timing. What are the odds that the neighbor of a disgruntled player whose name was swirling in the trade winds would unintentionally fan the flames of a media firestorm by cutting ties with their lovely lakefront property during the most mobile month of the NBA offseason? Considering he's made himself the most available player to ever be a full year away from free agency, I would think he would understand the confusion that resulted from announcing his future plans of flying the coop while living right next to a 'For Sale' sign.
