Paul George was once viewed as a legitimate MVP contender in the NBA.
But over the years, due to several injuries, PG13 has lost that status in the eyes of many.
George is still a phenomenal player when healthy, but most don’t view him as a top-10 player in the NBA right now.
The Los Angeles Clippers superstar has apparently heard all the noise and aims to get back at his doubters in the 2023-24 season, as revealed via NBACentral on Twitter.
“It was just a lot of unnecessary talk going around the league of, you know, guys feeling themselves and directing comments toward me that haven’t done anything as well,” George said.

George claims that many have bad-mouthed him in recent years.
He feels like many players who haven’t really done anything themselves have spoken ill of him.
To ensure that he gets back at them, George will focus on playing bully basketball in the upcoming season.
George averaged 23.8 points, 6.1 rebounds, and 5.1 assists per game in the 2022-23 season.
While his numbers were great, he played in just 56 games last season.
In fact, George has not played more than 56 games over the last four seasons as a member of the Clippers.
This is certainly concerning for the team, who intend to win it all in the 2023-24 season.
With George entering the new season with an aggressive mentality, it’s good news for the Clippers.
But only if he can stay healthy for the majority of the regular season and ultimately take things up a notch in the playoffs.
