The Oklahoma City Thunder earned their second win a row Thursday by beating the L.A. Clippers on the road, 127-117. Russell Westbrook got his 13th triple-double of the season in this game by collecting 29 points, 12 rebounds, and 11 assists. Thunder forward Paul George was not one to be outdone, as he also had a fantastic game himself, putting up 31 points on a highly efficient 12-of-16 shooting from the field. He also hit five shots from the 3-point area.
After conducting a postgame interview on the court, George headed for the dugout but not before meeting a barricade of fans, all eager to greet the soon-to-be free agent. While George shook hands and had a chitchat with a few of them, at least one fan was overlooked.
As you can see in the video below, that unfortunate fan was left hanging by the Thunder star, who probably had no idea someone was begging for his attention.
The poor guy, however, did not let himself to marinate in shame. Instead, he recovered quickly by switching to a “you the man” hand gesture. What else was he supposed to do? Also, who is he kidding?
If I were that fan, I would go out and find myself a DeAndre Jordan.
Paul George, who is averaging 20.1 points per game, and the Thunder will also be back at Staples Center on Feb. 8, against the Los Angeles Lakers so that fan could buy tickets for that game and try once again to fulfill his life ambition of getting a high five from the four-time All-Star.
