During NBA All-Star media availability on Friday, Pacers.com checked in with a few of Paul George's Team USA teammates and fellow All-Stars to get their reaction to PG's triumphant return to the court this season after the gruesome leg injury that had him rehabbing at this time last season.

Here are a few highlights from the comments which you can see in full, at Pacers.com.

James Harden:  I think the NBA and the entire World are excited to see him back on the court playing at a high level."

Anthony Davis: "After he came back it was a no-brainer. He's been playing well, his team has been playing well so it was a no-brainer he had to be here."

Klay Thompson: "I honestly expected it from him because I know how hard he works. It was a troublesome time for him at the time, but to see him fight through this adversity and see him back thriving, it makes us all happy."
