Thunder fans gave Paul George an unbelievable welcome at the Oklahoma City airport

Thunder fans had their collective hearts broken when Kevin Durant left Oklahoma City for the Golden State Warriors last year. After an MVP season from Russell Westbrook, the Thunder welcomed another superstar to OKC (who will probably break their hearts again in a year).

Fans were absolutely thrilled on Tuesday to greet Paul George at the Oklahoma City airport as hundreds of fans turned out for a first look at the new Thunder star.

The crowd was chanting “PG! PG!” as he made his way to give fans high-fives from the other side of a fence.

It was quite the welcome for George who was acquired from the Pacers.

George has one year remaining on his contract with Oklahoma City before hitting his player option in 2018. He’s been expected to become a free agent and pursue joining the Lakers. But a lot can happen between now and next summer. Still, it would probably be a good idea for OKC fans to not get too attached to George as a Thunder player.

Or not. Oh well.
