    Man this is the first time I've watched video of Paul George and his skills...and I'm VERY impressed. I definitely wouldn't mind the Pacers getting him in the draft if his game carries over to the NBA.

    dang...his dunks look effortless

    Yeah seems like everything he does looks effortless and controlled, he doesn't seem to be bother or rushed when shooting and seems to shoot over people with ease. Final thing is that he seems to know how to use his body to block of defenders when going to the hole and making it hard for them to block his shots.

    Oh one of the weaknesses that I have heard about him is that he needs to work on his handles, especially if he want so to play the 2

    I really wonder if he could play the SG spot.....don't you have to be quick enough while having enough lateral speed to be able to guard guys that will likely be smaller and quicker then he is?

    When I see him...I think that he's a clone of Granger....heck, I'm seeing visions of the whole "Shawne Williams / Danny Granger experiment....PT2.

    This is David West, he is the Honey Badger, West just doesn't give a *****....he's pretty bad *ss cuz he has no regard for any other Player or Team whatsoever.

    I don't think he lacks effort, it just looks that way because he's smooth. I seriously doubt he drops to us.

    If the Grizzlies really want George....we should do what the Nets are rumored to be doing to the TWolves....hold the pick hostage. If Udoh is available at the 12th spot....the Pacers should tell the Grizzlies to give us 12+16 in exchange for Paul George.

    I wonder if Danny is lobbying for him to come here with TPTB.

    I voted fro George on a poll for who I wanted out of the draft. When he came in at 6'9" during the predraft camp his stock has soared. He is projected to be a SG. He would fit in perfect with Granger. They would be interchangeable. George would be a steal in the draft. The sad thing is that George will be gone by the 10th pick. If not we BETTER take him.

    the only way i would be ok with pacers not taking George is if the pick is used in a trade for a stud PG (flynn, lawson, collison

    If someone does take him before 10 at least that means someone is going to slide that we may not have had a chance at.

    I hope Bird isn't scared of George because the pick could appear Shawne Williams-esque.

    If we could walk away with one of: Monroe, Aminu, George, Udoh on draft night, I consider it a success. They'll probably go 6, 7, 8, 9.

    But do you get my point?.

    It seems like Bird and Company are in win now mode. That way of thinking isn't always bad but wininng now so Bird keeps his job is not necessarily the direction you want your franchise to go if you are holding the highest lottery pick in ten years.

    If we don't trade for our pg of the future then keep the pick and grab Paul George. If he is there of course.

    The thing with the Clippers is they have their PF of the future already in Blake Griffin, their SG in Eric Gordon and a very good C in Kaman and a star PG in Baron Davis (even if some people don't think so). They need a SF badly and George would fill that role perfectly for them.

    I could easily see them taking him before we get to pick.

    Tidbits from Drafexpress

    Al-Farouq Aminu reportedly canceled his workout in Detroit. He much prefers going to the Clippers. Has a promise from them. Pencil him in.

    Detroit: Barring a trade or Cousins somehow falling past Warriors (not happening), Ed Davis will be going 7. Al-Farouq "doesn't make sense."

    What the Pacers should do is agree to trade one of our expiring 10M contracts + Rush to NO for Collison and Okafor and then take this guy @ 10 or the best available player. We solve 3 problems and after the coming year we only have 35M or so in guaranteed contracts. Okafor is slightly overpaid but still brings alot to the table. I don't see Rush ever being a great player that takes you to another level. Is Okafors contract that bad that he's a deal breaker. when not only does he and Collison start (likely) but we have enough contracts going away that the entire core of players we want to keep we will be able too.

    Ed Davis being family friends with Big Ben... that connection makes sense (could even see them bring Ben back to be his big man coach...)

    Yeah I have a feeling that the Collison deal is the easiest to do w/o our #10... as long as we get the guy we want at 10 (hopefully George)...

    Question if we take on Okafor then what do we do with him, do you propose that we have him start, Hibbert start, play Okafor at the 4...? What is left on his deal by the way?
