After playing the past five seasons for the Los Angeles Clippers, Paul George decided to start over in the NBA once again by agreeing to a lucrative long-term contract with the Philadelphia 76ers.

While many believed George would sign a contract extension with the Clippers to continue playing with Kawhi Leonard and James Harden, he did not receive the offer he wanted and opted to leave his hometown to join forces with Joel Embiid and Tyrese Maxey in Philadelphia.

It seems like George is very happy with his decision to leave Los Angeles in favor of Philadelphia, as he has had nothing but good things to say about the move and his new teammates.

George recently spoke on the “P with Paul George Podcast” about teaming with Embiid and Maxey, via ClutchPoints.

“It’s a dream come true, having a star point guard and a big star; that’s a crazy dynamic,” George said.

These star-studded trios seem to happen all the time in the NBA and big-time player moves are no longer a rare occurrence, but they don’t always result in success, with the Clippers last season being a prime example of how things can go wrong.

They brought in Russell Westbrook and Harden to play with George and Leonard, and while it looks like an all-star team that can’t be beat, Los Angeles didn’t do much to move the needle, with injuries being their downfall once again.

Heading into next season, Philadelphia will have a talented mix of two-way players and a young, rising point guard surrounded by veterans that could give it the makings of a championship team in the future.
