Recently Paul George revealed an interesting detail about his departure from Indiana. As it turned out, PG had “the best force in the league” to join the Pacers. When George asked the team to close the deal, they declined. He assumed that the Pacers did not want to win and asked to be traded.
George’s quote sparked speculation about who the player he actually mentioned was. Despite the widespread belief that it was Blake Griffin, it wasn’t him. According to Pacers reporter J. Michael, Anthony Davis was ready to join the Pacers, but Indiana didn’t want to take the step because he wasn’t willing to sign up after his contract ended.
