Paul George tried to get a spot in the Drew League but was shut down. The Pro-Am league based in Los Angeles often features appearances from top stars such as James Harden, Chris Paul and DeMar DeRozan. George tried to break protocol by playing in a playoff game despite not appearing once during the regular seasons.
The Drew League wasn’t having it and told him no thanks.
Paul George tried to show up and play in #thedrew playoffs without playing a regular season game and the commissioner said no. I respect it.

Sadly, the fans that attended that game are likely now livid that they missed out on seeing a NBA All-Star especially since he’s likely a future Los Angeles basketball star for the Lakers next summer.
