Traina Thoughts: Life comes at you fast these days when you’re Paul George

The best of the Internet, plus musings by SI.com writer, Jimmy Traina

1. Paul George has told the Pacers he will not play for the franchise after next season.

Trade rumors are flying.

Cavaliers fans are freaking out.

Lakers fans are thrilled that George reportedly wants to join their team.

Other fans are confused as hell.

All fans can do right now, though, is wait for this to all play out. However, retailers don’t have to wait. They can cut ties with George now. That’s what The Shop Indy has done. In fact, they’ve gone all the way, discounting George merchandise by 100%.

We made a couple of updates to the website. Have at it. #byepg13

2. Nolan Arenado completed a cycle yesterday by hitting a walkoff home run against the Giants.

His teammates rewarded him by blooding his face during the intense celebration.

3. Dirk Nowitzki made a funny on Twitter today when the Mavs social media account was a little too honest with its birthday wish for the future Hall of Famer.


4. Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola spent the weekend in Mexico City. The Patriots wideouts got a taste of the culture when they became lucha libre wresters.


5. Meanwhile Edelman and Amedola’s teammate, Rob Gronkowski, spent the weekend in Las Vegas. You can imagine how that went.

6. Russell Westbrook likes to take charge on the basketball court and on the dance floor.

Weekend walks!!! #whynot #westcoast
