Oklahoma City Thunder superstar Paul George is continuously proving that the gruesome injury he sustained years ago is now a thing of the past. George has been on a tear, and he had another highlight dunk on Tuesday night.
George cruised for a 360 dunk during their game against the Los Angeles Lakers at the Chesapeake Energy Arena in Oklahoma. The superstar forward stole a pass from Lakers guard Rajon Rondo, and surprisingly took off for a 360 jam to the delight of Thunder fans inside the arena.
