Playoff P? That’s what many NBA fans are saying watching Paul George stink it up in the bubble during the Clippers’ first-round matchup with the Dallas Mavericks.
Through four games, the man who once made his name in the postseason is shooting an abysmal 10/47 FGs and has only scored 34 points. He didn’t help his case on Sunday night going 3/14 FGs in a thriller that went into overtime that saw the game come down to a buzzer-beater from the NBA’s current phenom, Luka Doncic.
Twitter is clowning the 6-time NBA All-Star for not living up to his legendary nickname.

Nobody is even motivated enough to call the Nuggets frauds on the timeline, that's how crazy the Paul George slander is right now.— Ahmed🇸🇴/I did shit with Mariah (@big_business_) August 24, 2020
I’ve never seen the timeline unite to slander a professional athlete the way the timeline has united to slander Paul George. https://t.co/MKkQuQkunC— Colb (@___Colb___) August 24, 2020
Paul George is a 5x all nba, 6x all star, 4x all defensive team and finished 3rd in MVP voting. If he comes off the bench in his PRIME, his career is done 💀💀💀 https://t.co/yhNdHS0pUj— Ahmed🇸🇴/I did shit with Mariah (@big_business_) August 24, 2020
