Paul George was formally introduced as a member of the Thunder on Wednesday night, joining the media and VIP guests at an over-the-top celebration in his honor. Held at the Jones Assembly on film row in Oklahoma City, George was treated to a short “Welcome Party” and then afterward spoke with the press in a more traditional setting.
The entire thing was quite a spectacle, and unlike anything fans in OKC have seen out of the franchise. You can check out the full “Welcome Party” and press conference portions below, or keep scrolling for some video highlights of George discussing his new teammates, Russell Westbrook, free agency and more.
