Indiana Pacers' Paul George tried to pay stripper $1M for abortion

Another athlete bites the dust. Paul George is following Dwyane Wade’s footsteps - not collecting NBA rings and championships - but getting other women impregnated out of wedlock and perhaps out of a relationship. Unlike Wade, George attacks the situation quite differently as the latter has attempted to pay off the woman $1 million to abort the baby.

According to multiple media outlets, including balleralert.com, the Indiana Pacers star forward offered to pay a certain Daniela, who is a stripper-slash-model from Miami, Florida, after learning that he got her pregnant in 2013.
George is currently dating Clippers Head Coach Doc Rivers’ daughter.
Lol.

Seriously though, I don't understand why some top young athletes don't consider getting vasectomies. It's really just protection of their investment and their livelihood. If you want to start a family post-career, you can always get it reversed. Just seems stupid to basically be forking out so much money for either an abortion or child support, as well as cruel to potentially bring children into this world that you really don't want.

Sad to see Danny go, but hopefully ET can give us plenty off the bench.

Any news on Bynum? Will they play him or what?

Season may have ended in a ugly spiral but I'm pleased with how it went.

Paul George makes me very excited for the future of this franchise. If he develops his offense more he'll become an amazing 2 way player.

Stephenson will probably leave, would love to keep him but I doubt we will.

I have faith in Hibbert. Needs to lose weight so he's more agile on offense. He really doesn't need to be 295lb.

New PG would be lovely. Jeremy Lin maybe, Hill would be god in an off the bench role but not as a starter.

Bring on season 2014-15!

Hibbert isn't necessarily too big in weight, he's just got terrible balance because of his height. He falls all the time, and gets his feet tangled a lot when he's posting up.

George is a gun, if he develops an off the dribble game and some post moves he'll be pushing for LBJ and KD status!

Apparently Larry Legend said he wants to keep fancy pants Lance, which is a good sign. We also won't get much cap relief if he walks so why not sign him, hopefully Vogel and Larry can keep him under control in a way that let's him go a bit crazy (good crazy, not Artest crazy!).

Lin is a good idea but he likes to push the ball (we play slow -which killed us against the heat) and isn't a good shooter (we need spacing at the 1 spot). If we could get someone who looks after the ball and can space the floor that would be perfect - I'd love to get Vasquez in FA or a sign and trade with Toronto...

so anyone else like to take back the George Hill for Kawhi Leonard trade? They used to talk of it being a win win for both parties. I think its pretty clear now who won.

Not really.

If we kept Kahwi we wouldn't have gone as deep into the playoffs recently as we have. Pus he would've been 3rd in line behind PG and Granger.

That's the unfortunate thing about the league. Some players get snubbed of their playing time and we never get to see their true potential in the league. A good example is how Patrick Mills was restricted with his time at Portland and even at San Antonio prior to releasing Neal. There are plenty of examples.

This is why there are scouts and other various staff members at each organisation. We might not know San Antonio's full intention with their acquisition of Kahwi. For all we know, they might of wanted a solid role player and thought he was that guy. Doesn't matter, the kid got himself a ring and is in the history books as Finals MVP.

The same thing goes for Paul George, he could of been stuck behind Hill as backup SG, if Granger wasn't hit with unfortunate injuries.

It shows with Plumlee too. He was hardly getting minutes at Indiana so we offloaded him to PHX where he has flourished.

What do you guys reckon a good Plan B is if Stephenson leaves?

I say push Hill to the 2 spot and try to get Livingston or Sefolosha.

Thabo at the point!?!? I don't think so... He's really dropped off, can't shoot at all any more and he's never been a ball handler. Livingston would be great, but I think BKN will throw some money to keep him. Grievous Vasquez wouldn't be a bad option that would be a good ball handler to push Hill to the 2 spot. They have to do something with hill, he really dropped off last season.

Lance 'Stairs' Stephenson has turned down a 5yr 44mil deal.

Good riddance to the woman beating campaigner.

Apparently you guys are looking at Stuckey. I think he will be able to replace alot of the things Lance did for you for a fraction of the cost. He was actually really good for us last year.

I dunno if I really want Rodney Chuckey tbh.

Apparently we're trying to get Dragic. I don't think he'd fit our half court offense though. I'd prefer to go after Rondo.

Technically we replaced Lance with Miles cause Miles will start.
True. I'd forgotten about Miles and with the timing, it seemed that Stuckey replaced Lance, but you are right. Miles will start and Stuckey will be 6th man.

I really liked Lance, but his play noticeable dropped off since the AS break. I'll miss his aggression, but not his locker room presence.
