Paul George followed through on an invitation by NBA veteran Jamal Crawford to play in the Seattle Pro Am. Crawford is known for the Pro Am, one of the many ways in which he gives back to his hometown, and how he gets some fellow NBA guys to join each year.

Well, PG made a big splash over the weekend. He was one assist shy of a easy triple-double — with an emphasis on easy. 40 points, 10 rebounds, and nine rebounds.

In watching the highlights — available below — George had his way on the dribble, in the lane, and on the perimeter. He often went between his legs or behind his back, crossing over the unknown players defending him.

What jumped out to me was his passing. In a game where he could take all the shots he wanted but also attracted multiple defenders, George frequently found an open teammate and hit him with a no-look pass.

Again, with such ease. (And yes, George completed his famous 360-degree dunk)

This is a nice warm-up for George, who reports for USA Basketball Training Camp in Las Vegas in one week.
