Paul George isn't a jackknob like LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony, Deron Williams, or Dwight Howard, however when everyone keeps telling him to go to NY or whatever, yea - the idea sucks.

Wish you could franchise a player like in the NFL, maybe one player every 5 years?

02-17-2013, 10:30 PM

The thing about the NBA is that you're pretty much guaranteed to have any player, if you want, for 7 to 9 years. Paul George isn't leaving Indianapolis until 2018 at the earliest, if he does at all. If the Pacers put a good team around him like they have now, there'll be no reason for him to leave. No need to worry now.

I thought so too, but apparently you have to start two all star games, win MVP once, or be named to two all nba teams.

So we're either safe, unless PG wins MVP next year.

I think by the end of the season he'll prove himself to be top 15. I mean, he's still learning every day what he can do. But as of right now I'd argue no, because he still has consistency issues that all young players have.

I can agree with this. Though Wade is also having some consistency issues the past two years also, whether you blame it on playing with Bron, age, or injuries; no arguing he hasn't been consistent as of late. But I definitely see what you are saying there, and I hope PG becomes very consistent and becomes a top 5 player, not just top 15, in the NBA within the next couple years. He is that talented.

A couple observations...

It says a lot to me that not one, but two players went between Bosh's legs last night it says he sucks for one, it also says the other all stars don't respect him. Kid had to feel like the chubby kid on the playground last night the way he was picked on.

East would have won going away IMO if they had played the Wade, PG, LBJ, Melo, Noah lineup for the final six minutes. Why Kyrie and Bosh were in there in the closing minutes I do not know, I like Kyrie at least, but he is not a great defender yet and on top of that he has no real late game experience against stars wanting to win something.

Paul's confidence was great, he flashed some great defensive plays even when he wasn't trying that hard on that end of the court. Kid just has crazy skill, like everyone seemed to echo, he makes everything look easy. Spo was running Lebron's sets for PG in the stint where he scored 5 points and found Kyrie for a triple and Melo for a triple. They were the exact same sort of sets Miami would run to find 3s for Chalmers and Battier, only PG was in the Lebron situation....loved seeing that, especially because he made the right read both times.

Chris Paul is really good.
