Where is Paul George originally from?

According to a 2018 report on Andscape, he was born on the 2nd of May 2022 to Pauletta Ann and Paul George. Growing up in a small town, he was raised by a tight-knit family surrounded by about 70 of his extended family members.

He started playing basketball at Palmdale Knight High under his coach, Tom Hegre. Like the athletic wonder, his siblings, Porlata and Teiosha, played college volleyball and basketball at the California State University, San Bernardino, Pepperdine University, and Germany.

At six years, his mother, Pauletta Ann, suffered a stroke that limited her ability to speak and move. His mother's strength and determination to get well helped PG throughout his career and, most recently, during his recent injury spell.
