Can you imagine Paul George knitting?

Now, thanks to a playoff commercial he starred in for Universal Pictures' "Secret Life of Pets 2," you don’t have to.

The commercial, which George posted to his Twitter and Instagram accounts Friday, opens with the Thunder star pondering in front of a cork board covered with color samples and sketches of sweaters. He pulls one piece of paper off the board, crumples it up and tosses it behind him into a mini basketball hoop set up on a waste basket.

Then George sits down to knit.


The big reveal – spoiler alert – is that the sweater design at the beginning of the movie is not for George, but for his dog.

Over the closing shot of George and his dog hover the words, “nba players love their Pets2.”

Secret life of Pets 2 is scheduled to be released on June 7, and the Thunder faces the Trail Blazers in Game 1 of the first-round playoff series Sunday.
