Paul George on his conversations with LeBron James last summer, "It was more so just about hanging, talking, communicating, talking about working out. It wasn't much about partnering up. It was more so just about building a bond, building a brotherhood. So, there was just opportunity to get together and hang. We got lunch, drinks. IT was kinda just a low-key get together…We know each other. But it was more so just, I didn't have nothing to do that day. He didn't have nothing to do that day. It was just a get together."
