"Russ is the reason why this [free agency] decision is becoming even more easier to make, is the character Russ [has]", George told ESPN. "But the fact Russ had my back, that's my guy forever, and it's more apparent what his decision needs to be made when it comes down to it".

"It's just great", Westbrook said.

George has proved to be a natural fit alongside Westbrook.

Those who firmly believe Paul George will be a Laker next season, please step forward.

George was a borderline case, and I would have (narrowly) omitted him.

Paul George (l.) was left off the 2018 All-Star game roster and Russell Westbrook (r.) voiced his displeasure with the media. Basketball and stuff that will come, that's short term, but brotherhood and friends, stuff like that is lifetime. With their journey, everybody has a different outlook on different things.

The Syrian opposition has said that Russia's parallel diplomatic push serves to undermine United Nations -sponsored negotiations. This comes as US -backed Syrian Democratic Forces reject a claim by Turkey that ISIS is present in the Afrin region.

George's comments to Nichols came after Westbrook went on a tirade following OKC's one-point January 23 win over Brooklyn, visibly frustrated that his All-Star caliber teammate was not voted in, despite other teams in the West (mainly the Warriors) getting four All-Stars.

What did you think about Russell Westbrook's comments directed at you, in which he took a shot about people "complaining about getting snubbed?".

"I think from the front office to the fans, to the teammates, it's just been family". You got guys just talking about that all the time, but the guys that deserve it should be in it. "It's not - I just don't understand it".

"Guy leads the league in steals, competes every night, top two at his position. Doesn't make any sense". "Don't make any sense, regardless of anything else", Westbrook, added.

"We can talk about the last plays, but I do think we gave up 35 points in the fourth quarter and made a ton of mistakes", Brooklyn coach Kenny Atkinson said. After the Thunder's win against the Nets on Tuesday, Westbrook expressed his displeasure with George not making the All-Star Game to the media.

He's the second-leading scorer on the Thunder and has been one of the best and most consistent two-way players in the league, which makes his All-Star omission surprising.
