I got him with the okey-dokey, cut up and scored about 40 yards, Hurts recalled. I’m going to work just like that. I’ve been rolling ever since.
Back during his Indiana days, Brian Shaw and George would spend hours together talking about Bryant’s work ethic and how he led Los Angeles to five NBA titles.
And now that he gets his first true look at free agency in the summer of 2018, he can’t stop flirting with Los Angeles.
OKC went into LA and beat the Lakers on Wednesday by 37 points. In terms of a team trying to win a championship, the Lakers looked as far from it as possible against the Thunder, but that didn’t seem to bother George all that much.
You cant make expectations, or really I can’t have any. One of their best players was out tonight. Lonzo is really the engine. The way they came out and played I suspect that’s they way they’re used to with Lonzo at the point. Just playing fast and high paced, high energy. But it’s what you expect in a young team. They’re gonna have their bruises, gonna have their wounds. The best thing is they have young guys that are potentially gonna be big names in this league. They just gotta continue to keep working and fine tuning themselves. Ya know, they’ve got good young talent.
Three teams have had the same player start at point guard in every game this season: Westbrook with the Thunder, Kyle Lowry with the Raptors and Jamal Murray with the Nuggets. The next step for Murray is to become more of a playmaker at the position.

Indeed, Jordan was named first-team Associated Press All-Pro for the first time in his career this season — his seventh since being New Orleans’ first of two first-round draft choices in 2011 out of California. The 6-foot-4, 287-pound edge rusher had 13 sacks, 17 tackles for losses, 28 QB hits, 11 passes defended (mostly batted passes), an interception and two forced fumbles.
Teammates marvel at his conditioning, boundless energy and how he hardly ever misses a defensive snap.
