Los Angeles Clippers star Paul George has some more down time as the NBA suspended operations for 30 days backdated on March 12th.
With that said, George spent time on Friday afternoon livestreaming himself on Twitch playing Call of Duty: Modern Warfare.
George then took a sarcastic jab at Phoenix Suns All-Star guard Devin Booker on Twitch, contrasting his skills with Booker since George “plays with the homies” instead of professional gamers and streamers.

The 23-year-old Booker made a viral moment on Wednesday evening when he found out live on his own stream that the NBA had suspended the season due to coronavirus. Booker’s shock and almost speechlessness resonated, as he thought his friend was joking when he delivered the news to him.
It wasn’t a joke, and now Booker might have video-game beef with George. One way to settle the “who’s better?” debate would be to have the Clippers forward and the Suns star either play together or against each other in “Call of Duty” and see who wins.
Paul George picking up gaming is a similar theme among NBA fans, too, as both players and viewers find something else to do in the absence of the league’s games until (at least) mid-April. Earlier on Friday, Los Angeles Lakers guard Alex Caruso said he would turn “pro” given the amount of time he has to play video games during the hiatus.
