  George Clooney Reveals Adorable Morning Routine with 4-Year-Old Son That Makes Him 'Laugh Out Loud' "They really are funny kids," George Clooney said of his 4-year-old twins Ella and Alexander The father of two, 60, raved about his 4-yea on the WTF with Marc Maron podcast.

Chris Paul has been the talk of the town lately with his ability to turn franchises around. So much so that he is now considered a legitimate MVP candidate , sitting at four on NBA.com’s MVP ladder, turning the 34–39 ten seed Phoenix Suns into the 46–18 one seed. Adding a hall of fame point guard in Chris Paul as well as a savvy vet in Jae Crowder was bound to make Phoenix a better team [1]. This would also do wonders for the 2018 1st overall pick in DeAndre Ayton’s development.

Overall, nobody major that I’ve seen thinks Kevin Durant’s career is over. Everybody still thought his future value was worthy of a max contract, except apparently James Dolan. The Nets will still be major contenders and he will almost certainly still be their best player ; however, it’d be naive to think that because Paul George made a complete recovery from a completely different injury that Kevin Taking nothing away from Giannis, Harden’s created history with scoring the basketball. After years, people would still be talking about what Harden did this year. That’s why I think Harden should be the MVP .

We're only 20 games into the 2021-22 NBA season, but the frontrunners for the Most Valuable Player of the Year have staked an early claim for the award.

Stephen Curry's lights-out shooting has propelled the Golden State Warriors to the top of the league with an 18-2 record, while DeMar DeRozan is having a career year in Chicago as the Bulls solidify themselves as one of the best teams in the Eastern Conference.

Down the list, reigning MVP Nikola Jokic is putting together another stat-stuffing season, while two-time winner Giannis Antetokounmpo is more than in the mix.

Paul Rudd Confirms He Once Swapped Places with Seth Rogen's Masseuse Unnoticed: 'That's True'

  Paul Rudd Confirms He Once Swapped Places with Seth Rogen's Masseuse Unnoticed: 'That's True' Paul Rudd estimates that he massaged pal Seth Rogen for "at least 40 minutes" during the prank before he found out Rudd — PEOPLE's 2021 Sexiest Man Alive — appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Monday night, at one point confirming pal Seth Rogen's story involving the actor and a massage. Back in July, Rogen shared a story on Twitter about a time when Rudd pulled a prank on him by secretly swapping places with Rogen's masseuse mid-massage session. "Once I was in the spa in a hotel in Vegas getting a massage.

Also in two more pods he will get irate with someone else for MVP talk if it is a candidate he doesn’t like. He had done it like 4 different years. By my count it took exactly one minute and fifty seconds before Bill turned the Paul George MVP segment (ridiculous on its own) into a full blown Tatum/Brown discussion. One minute and 15 seconds of that he was just waiting for his guest to stop talking so he could insert the Celtics.

Paul George SG/SF. Marcus Smart or Ben Simmons PG. That team would be so fucking good on defense. Giannis is doing all by himself, he should be the MVP . George have Westbrook with him. The appearance was an audition for a life outside of basketball: NBA talking head, a platform he What's worse is that his fanboys talking about how " nobody losing lives from kyrie not taking

That four-man group headlines the early contenders, but there's one man who's quietly going about his business and deserves to have his name alongside them.

LA Clippers star Paul George.

The Clippers entered the season with big doubts following Kawhi Leonard's off-season meniscus surgery ruling the two-time Finals MVP out for an extended period.

With Paul George carrying the team during the playoffs last season, many questioned whether he could do it for the bulk of the regular season. With the ball in his hands as the clear No. 1 option on offense, the 31-year-old is now having his best season since he finished third in MVP voting in 2018-19 with the Oklahoma City Thunder.

'MVP, MVP' - Brooklyn crowd rains down MVP chants for Warriors star Steph Curry

  'MVP, MVP' - Brooklyn crowd rains down MVP chants for Warriors star Steph Curry Early in the second quarter, a large contingent of Warriors fans at Barclays Center let out the MVP chants for Stephen Curry as he went on to torch the Nets for 37 points in a big road win.In their opening two games of 2021-22 they beat the Los Angeles Lakers and LA Clippers, with their recent blowout win over the Chicago Bulls being their only other real test of the season, so tonight's road game against the Brooklyn Nets was earmarked as an 'are the Warriors actually good?' game.

Lol Paul George is not going to the sixers. "I didn't like nobody on the court, but do I respect him," Pierce said of his former rivals. "Of course, I respect what he’s done for the game and the longevity he’s been able to provide and the shows he’s given us and spectacular athleticism." Pierce wasn't completely complimentary, however, saying, "This team as constructed can not win a championship," when discussing the current Lakers.

Paul George has added some fourth-quarter heroics to his MVP -level two-way repertoire. More important, he's earned the full trust of the Thunder's fearless leader. There have been memes and jokes about George the past few years since his "no OT tonight" Gatorade ad came out. Coming into that Nets game, he was infamously 0-for-14 in his career on go-ahead shots in the final 10 seconds of regulation or overtime. And with Westbrook known for clutch-time heroics, it was fair to wonder whether George might not get the final look, even while sitting on 22 points in the quarter.

YEAR TEAM PTS REB AST STL FG% 3P%
2021-22 LAC 25.9 7.5 5.2 1.8 42.8 33.3
2020-21 LAC 23.3 6.6 5.2 1.1 46.7 41.1
2019-20 LAC 21.5 5.7 3.9 1.4 43.9 41.2
2018-19 OKC 28.0 8.2 4.1 2.2 43.8 38.6

In Leonard's absence, George has taken full control of the Clippers offense, with his career-high 33.7 percent usage rate, the second-highest in the league behind only Dallas Mavericks star Luka Doncic.

Aside from his scoring, George is impacting the offense with his improved playmaking helping create easy looks for role players like Terance Mann, Reggie Jackson, Luke Kennard, Ivica Zubac and Isaiah Hartenstein, who have all flourished under his leadership.

George currently leads the Clippers in assists at 5.2 per game, tying his career-best mark from last season.

“We need him to do everything that he’s doing for us to be in position that we are,” Jackson said. “I think he’s playing at the best level and he’s in the best mindset that he’s been in.”

Ohtani voted AL MVP for 2-way season, Harper wins NL honor

  Ohtani voted AL MVP for 2-way season, Harper wins NL honor NEW YORK (AP) — Shohei Ohtani was unanimiously voted American League MVP on Thursday for a two-way season not seen since Babe Ruth, and Bryce Harper earned the National League honor for the second time. Ohtani received all 30 first-place votes and 420 points in voting by members of the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. Toronto first baseman Vladimir Guerrero Jr. was second with 29 seconds and 269 points, and Blue Jays infielder Marcus Semien was third with 232 points. Kansas City catcher Salvador Perez got the other second-place vote. Ohtani hit .257 with 46 homers, 100 RBIs and a .

Most people don’t place that much faith in the current Pelicans squad. If AD ends up on a top seed, he is certainly a great MVP candidate . His ability to rack up huge box score stats makes him a prime MVP candidate . But he needs to be on a good team first. Paul George benefits from being in the weaker conference, as MVP voters tend to focus more on playoff seeding rather than how many games the team won. The east has a clear best team (Cleveland), but the #2 team is pretty much wide open. Toronto and maybe Boston are considered to be the favorites, but people recognize that many teams

George Paul had a rough first game vs Utah Jazz featuring the infamous Jingle. This is the first time Playoff P has faced Utah You talking about “backbone and playing hard on defense” when you’re out of the playoffs cause Bron was letting his team What happened to the MVP candidate on OKC?

What's perhaps been the most surprising part of the Clippers' 11-9 start to the season, good for fifth in the Western Conference, has been their defense, led by George, who this season looks more like the dominant two-way threat we've come to expect on a nightly basis.

The Clippers currently rank second in defensive rating, giving up 102.2 points per 100 possessions and according to Basketball Reference, George is second in the NBA in Defensive Win Shares behind reigning MVP Nikola Jokic.

“PG alone doesn’t get enough credit for the guy he is, the teammate he is, you know how positive he always stays, and the motherf— can play,” Clippers forward Marcus Morris said. “I haven’t played against a guy or with a guy who’s been that smooth in his game at 6-9, 6-8, being able to do what he does.

“He deserves this chance to be able to be mentioned with the great players, and I just feel like he’s always getting left out. I don’t know what it is.”

George's value to the Clippers on both ends of the floor only solidifies his MVP case, especially doing so without their No.1 option in Kawhi Leonard.

While he may not be getting the plaudits just yet, there's no denying George's value to his squad.
