Paul George Is the Official Panty-Melter of the 2016 VH1 Baelympics

A true slam dunk.

I know nothing about basketball, but I do know a thing or two about hot boys–and American basketball player Paul George is a certified panty-melter. Standing tall at 6’9″, the 26-year-old Indiana Pacers small forward–does that mean he runs?–is set to ignite libidos in Rio at the 2016 Olympics. He’ll also score some points on the basketball court for team USA–seriously, is that what “small forwards” do?–but let’s focus on more important things, shall we? Like his arms. And eyes. And face. Grab a bottle of water, ladies and gents. You’ll need it.

  • He has huge hands.

    Even during Rio craziness, George still found time to shower his mom and aunt with presents and love on social media. You know what they say about men who are good to their mothers: They make great husbands. (Yes, I’m already planning my marriage to this man. Just let me live, OK?)

  • And the BEST father.

    Ugh, be still my heart.

  • He has Kobe Bryant’s seal of approval.

    Accomplished bae!

  • I don’t even know what this photo is, but it’s hot and you should see it.

    I’ve never wanted to be manhandled like a dead fish until this exact moment.

    That’s my religion.

  • He cleans up good, too.
