Paul George introduced the world to “Playoff P” in 2018, but there has been an APB out for him in the last 2 games of the series against the DAL MAVS.
See video below:
Paul gave himself the nickname, as a player on the OKC THUNDER, unbeknownst to his teammates.
Today’s reality is “Playoff P” is a member of the LA Clippers and he has been missing in action since game 1 of the CLIPPERS/MAVS playoff series, in the NBA Bubble.
Paul has received a lot of criticism since he gave himself the nickname “Playoff P” because his most accomplished playoff years were as an IND PACER…before Paul blessed himself with the self-proclaimed moniker.
Many fans and sports analysts have become frustrated with the nickname because Paul is not living up to it.
Paul is an extremely talented basketball player who is feeling the pressure of living up to his self-proclaimed moniker, but there is definitely a lack of sympathy because the expectation is if you’re bold enough to give yourself a nickname then you have to live up to it.
In the Game 3 post-game interview, Paul admits that he hasn’t shot the ball well in the last 2 games, but there are more facets to his game that he focuses on when he’s not shooting well.
I believe we will have a “Playoff P” sighting in Game 4 today.
In my opinion, Paul George is an NBA superstar who cursed himself with a nickname that puts unneeded pressure on him in the playoffs.
Do you think “Playoff P” will make an appearance in Game 4?
