Summary

But after George spurned the Los Angeles Lakers in free agency last summer, fans greeted him with hearty boos on Wednesday, including every time he touched the ball."It was fun, it was fun," George said of the boos. I've been playing basketball for a really long time and a little booing and a little noise is not going to make me forget how to play basketball."George got the last laugh, finishing with 37 points on 15-of-29 shooting in the Oklahoma City Thunder's 107-100 win."I'm not the only SoCal kid from this area that didn't play here," George said when asked about the jeers Wednesday. That's the only thing I'm worried about."After George picked up a third foul early in the first quarter, Lakers fans erupted in cheers and booed him as he went to the bench. I think it's more so us knowing we've gotta play it for each other, more so than just 'all the fans are giving him a hard time, let's play even harder.'"George was able to overcome the early foul trouble to settle into a rhythm, but he did get hit with a technical foul in the first half for slapping the backboard after a dunk.
