The video cut away too soon. We need to know which boy is going home with those sneakers. Hopefully, they were able to work out a friendly deal.
It’s really cool that players give away their sneakers to fans. Paul George, who has an endorsement deal with Nike, most likely has thousands of sneakers at his house. That’s why the Thunder scorer was able to give some out to the loyal fans of the NBA that easily.
Paul George and the Thunder are 16-7 after starting the year 0-4. OKC has the number one defense in the NBA, according to Sam Amick of The Athletic.
Meanwhile…OKC is 16-7 after 0-4 start
* No. 1 defense WITHOUT Andre Roberson, flipping narrative of last season (100.9 points allowed per 100; 2nd place is Boston at 103.1).
* Paul George (24.3 ppg, 8.1 rpg, 4.3 apg) and Russ (22.8 ppg, 10 rpg, 9.7 apg) doing serious work.

Thunder are looking like a team which can compete with the Golden State Warriors. OKC already beat Golden State once this season. As long as Westbrook and George keep this up, the Thunder should be able to get home-court advantage in the 2019 playoffs.
