    Default Update: Paul George talks about paternity claim

    http://www.indystar.com/story/sports...acers/5278631/

    Developing: Pacers' Paul George addresses paternity reports
    Staff report 11:40 a.m. EST February 7, 2014

    Indiana Pacers all-star Paul George addressed reports that he's the father of a child from a relationship with a woman from Miami.

    "If and when there is any legal confirmation I'm the father, I embrace it. I step up to it," George told reporters this morning at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

    George, however, denied to TMZ Sports reports that he offered the woman, who is pregnant, $1 million to abort the child.

    George answered two questions about the situation and asked reporters "to respect my privacy."

    Lance Stephenson is out for tonight's game against Portland with a back injury. Newly signed free agent Andrew Bynum joined the team and spoke with the media as well.

    This story will be updated.
    The other thread about this got locked, but the update is at least newsworthy.

    I debated posting it or not, because it's doomed to lock down at some point.

    His personal business is his personal business. Not my business to ever judge that. That said, it's fair to expect a certain standard of performance on the court from him, and I really hope his personal business doesn't affect his job performance...or fans do have a right to complain.

    Also, PG, Lafayette's only about an hour up 65 from Geist. Just for reference in 16 years or so.

    While I can dream of a world where everyone says their piece on the abortion part of this story without arguing with anyone else about it, that's all it is: A dream.

    So let's try not to even go there this time, please. If someone does, I think I'm just going to delete it and be done with it so we don't have a repeat of last time. It's certainly not worth it on a Pacers board.

    Your women's program is the crown jewel of your athletic department, so he may want to look into that

    Never too soon to start the recruiting process.. I expect a similar pitch for one of Drew Brees' sons to play QB at Purdue.

    Hey that's what Ole Miss did with the Mannings

    Have to admit I'm surprised he addressed it but I guess its best to nip it in the bud now so nobody asked him about Callie Rivers and if that wast true?

    Has there ever been a father vs son matchup in the NBA? This has a world of potential.

    I am very happy to hear Paul deny the 'payoff' claim. I have no reason to not believe him, so I choose to trust him.

    Also very glad to hear that he will step up to his responsibilities if it's his child.

    Good for you, Paul!

    I'm not aware if there is a way to get a paternity test done while still in the womb?

    Good luck PG...

    LeBron's kid has quite the jump on PG's little one. I think LeBron Jr. was born when LeBron was like 20 or something.

    Yeah. That banner must get lonely. Swaying in the breeze all by itself. No banners from basketball, swimming, diving, soccer or anything else to keep it company. How sad that poor lonely banner must be.

    19 but seeing as how LeBron went right after HS I don't think Jr will be able to go unless he's 20 by then LeBron will be 39 so I doubt he's in the league at that point.

    I'd say with Lance out and this hanging over PG's head, the chances of victory tonight are slim.

    Without the governance of my morality, I do expect others to uphold my morals. He is a great basketball player. And if the child is his, I hope he is a better father.

    Go get the trailblazers.

    A pro athlete may have a illegitimate child. Color me shocked.

    I am sure there will be many who want to sit up in their ivory towers and judge him if this is true, but as long as he plays at a high level I do not really care.

    I do not look to pro athletes as being moral compasses like some people do in this city.

    I get what you are saying, but he might be the only guy on this team who has an illegitimate child. So regardless of how trivial it might be, it is a bit out of character for the type of players this organization brings in. Especially the face of the franchise.
