Born in Palmdale, California, George came from a family of athletes. His older sisters are both sportswomen, Teiosha plays basketball at Pepperdine and Portala plays volleyball at CSU-San Bernardino. Because of his sister’s influence, George also grew up playing sports. Teiosha would play basketball with him in their neighbourhood, but he was not able to play with any formal teams until he entered Pete Knight High School, but during his time their George showed great potential and started winning awards with and for his team. His coach would even put him in the first five even though he wasn’t a senior yet. In his last season in high school, they won the Golden League championship and he bagged the MVP award as well.
Although George ended his high school years with great numbers, his school was not big with college recruiters. Eventually Santa Clara University offered him a basketball scholarship, but he still wanted to consider other schools. Pepperdine University also became an option because of her sister’s influence, but he changed his mind when the coach who he preferred quit and finally made his choice and grabbed the offer from California State University-Fresno.
George, performed exceptionally well during his stay in Fresno State. He was tagged as his team’s best free throw shooter in the history of their school, and was among the top 20 sophomore shooters in the NCAA. Because of his feat early in his college years, even though he was just a sophomore, in 2010 he was included to the NBA Draft and became the highest draft pick in the history of his school. He decided to forego his remaining two years in college and signed a contract with the Indiana Pacers. This big step in his career catapulted him into the spotlight and his contract offer of $3.9 million for two years started his net worth.
Being consistent with his performance, George has garnered recognitions in the NBA such as being included in the NBA All-Star game three times. He was also named NBA’s Most Improved Player in 2013, and was included in the United States national team in 2014, which competed in the FIBA Basketball World Cup in Spain, but a serious broken leg kept him out of the game for several months.. All of his achievement helped in his popularity though, and led him to have an extension of contract with his team in 2014, increasing his net worth.
