Throughout the 2017-18 NBA season, Paul George has been constantly linked to the Los Angeles Lakers in his upcoming free agency.

After the Oklahoma City Thunder lost in six games to the Utah Jazz in the first round of the 2018 NBA playoffs, many wondered what a short postseason run ultimately means for the five-time All-Star.

George has admitted to having a desire to re-sign with the Thunder, while also acknowledging there is a lure for players to join their hometown team. For now, however, there’s another aspect of uncertainty surrounding George.

With less than two months before the start of free agency, the 28-year-old posted a picture of himself in a hospital gown on Instagram:

At this time, it is unclear why George was in a hospital gown. However, based on his smile and caption, it appears it was not anything serious or something that could impact his free agency.

With George entering the prime years of his career, he faces a major decision if he wants to compete for championships.

Although he played with two other All-Stars in Russell Westbrook and Carmelo Anthony, Los Angeles can provide him an opportunity to play with perhaps the best player in today’s game, LeBron James.

Regardless of George’s decision, the Lakers have established a competitive young core led by head coach Luke Walton. After winning 35 games this season, there is great optimism Los Angeles can be an attractive free agent destination once again.
