NBA free agency unexpectedly rocked the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday when forward Paul George was traded to the Los Angeles Clippers for a boatload of draft picks. The move sent ripples through the NBA as the Clippers were able to use the trade to secure landing Kawhi Leonard and Russell Westbrook used George’s exit as an opportunity to request his own, a move that would launch a new era in Oklahoma City.
On Saturday evening George sent out a thank you to the Thunder organization and the city. While Sam Presti and company are probably happy about the draft picks, the fact that George wanted out of OKC didn’t settle too well with the fanbase. Here’s some of the best of what Twitter had to offer.
