During a conference call with reporters on Friday, Los Angeles Clippers superstar small forward Paul George talked about the statement that he’s going to put on the back of his jersey.

The Clippers wing also touched on his excitement level of going fishing at Disney World.

“Yeah, I will wear something to kind of tie into what’s been going on on the back of my jersey. That will be a reveal at the time,” the Clippers forward said, via Tomer Azarly of ClutchPoints.

“But, yeah, I am excited to get on these lakes. I’m excited to just really take advantage of all the amenities here: golfing, fishing, players lounge. We got quite a few things here to keep us busy. I’m just looking forward to the experience, to come out on top hopefully in this.”

George is a big fishing fanatic. NBA players and staffers will have access to three golf courses with tee times for foursomes, as well as fishing trips, bowling, swimming pools, tennis courts and bike rides at Disney World.

The “bubble” games are set to start on July 30. The Clippers will play eight seeding games before the 2020 playoffs begin, as will all the other 21 teams.

George and the Clippers have the second-best record in the Western Conference standings. With PG and Kawhi Leonard leading the charge, LAC is title contenders for the first time in franchise history.

Before games were suspended in March, George was averaging 21.0 points, 5.7 rebounds and 3.9 assists for the Clippers. The six-time All-Star, who has never played in the NBA Finals, was also shooting 43.2 percent from the field, 39.9 percent from beyond the arc and 88.2 percent from the free-throw line.
