Paul George is an elite NBA two-way wing, one of the few players whose prowess on one end of the court is matched on the other. He is a multi-team All-Star and All-Defense member whose partnership with Kawhi Leonard on the Los Angeles Clippers is heralded as one of the very best one-two punches in the NBA. NBA athletes of similar prominence include Jayson Tatum and Joel Embiid.
Unfortunately, George has also been plagued by injuries throughout his career. This season has been the same, as George has only played in 26 games due to a PCL injury in his elbow and appears unlikely to suit up again for quite a while. Nevertheless, he and Leonard are one of the league's most fearsome duos when both are healthy.
Such accolades also come with great financial windfall. Here's everything you need to know about the man known as PG-13.
