For one, the Thunder can’t flop within the postseason for a 2nd straight 12 months with superstars Russell Westbrook and Paul George.
On the opposite facet, the animus could also be heightened, particularly for Seth Curry. His fiancee is Callie Rivers, who used to this point George. Callie, a former Florida Gators volleyball participant, was seen cheering for Portland at Sunday’s sequence opener.
Callie can also be the daughter of Clippers head coach Doc Rivers. She and Curry obtained engaged again in February, in response to TMZ.
the NBA star popped the query to his longtime girlfriend on Valentine’s Day at Ruth’s Chris Steakhouse in Charlotte, North Carolina. Whereas each NBA households had been on the town for All-Star Weekend, Curry and Rivers had loads of family members to have fun the engagement with.
She additionally posted on Twitter after the announcement with the phrases: “2.14.19 was a DAY. so grateful & blessed & liked & pleased & optimistic & full.”
So Callie is the ex of George…so what? Nicely, George skilled some public embarrassment for dishonest on her. Worldwide Enterprise Occasions reported that he impregnated a stripper named Daniela Rajic again in 2014 and even provided to pay her $1 million to abort the kid, which she didn’t settle for. This allegation was denied by George’s reps.
“Daniela isn’t new to the world of ballers. She was rumored to have messed round with Lil Wayne up to now and may be discovered frequenting Warmth video games. Right here’s the place it will get messy. Daniela and George return at the very least to over the summer time of 2013, once they had been noticed at a mansion celebration collectively,” a supply tells balleralert.com.

George and Rajic have reconciled, nevertheless, even having a second baby collectively.
The general public embarrassment could have rubbed Callie’s father Doc the unsuitable means. Regardless of the Clippers having room so as to add a capturing guard on its roster (with loads of cap area), the administration didn’t push for George, who could have been the best choice obtainable.
Both means, Callie is on the sidelines cheering laborious for Curry, so it’s clear that she’s moved on. It could be some added motivation for Portland, nevertheless, who’s at present main in Recreation One after getting swept within the season sequence.
