Paul George was never going to leave his meeting with the Philadelphia 76ers without a contract.

Daryl Morey knew that; insiders knew that, and it seems like even he knew that.

As shown by Law Murray on Twitter (via NBA Central), the two-way stud showed up to the meeting donning an Allen Iverson t-shirt, so it seems like this was his plan all along.

It would take a lot to convince George to leave California at this point in his career, considering his family was already established there and he’s a Cali native.

That’s why they signed him to a four-year contract, giving him an additional year and significantly one-upping the Los Angeles Clippers’ offer.

George reportedly also pushed to be traded to the Golden State Warriors, but the two sides couldn’t agree to a deal.

That left the door wide open for George to walk away without leaving them anything in return, and that just feels like poor asset management from Steve Ballmer’s team.

The Clippers are significantly worse than they were now that he’s left, and their chances of winning an NBA championship got slimmer.

As for the Sixers, they’ve officially joined the top tier of contending teams in the Eastern Conference, although, obviously, their ability to stay healthy will most likely be the determining factor as they look to get back to the NBA Finals for the first time in two decades.
