    Talking Official Paul George "Welcome to the Pacers" thread ..

    I wanted to make this the Official Paul George "Welcome to the Pacers" thread ..


    Glad to see you are a Pacer Paul...
    Let's hope that you continue to grow as a player , and become the elite player that we all know you can be ....

    AWESOME ... AWESOME PICK LARRY ..!!

    If Paul can play S.G. primarily , he will really have a good chance at earning a starting spot ... If he works hard ..

    I haven't had this deja-vu feeling for awhile ... but doesn't this feel like a turning point for our franchise?
    Like how it was when we were blessed with Reggie Miller as a Pacer..

    Both drafts , we didn't end up getting the hometown kid .. both drafts.. you had an Indiana kid vs. a California kid ..

    I hear George is a lights out shooter , and is clutch , with leadership qualities ..... sounds familiar..



    .


    Let us hope ..

    I'm praying he turns out to be the superstar he is said he can turn out to be. I'm hoping we don't trade him, which I don't think we will. I also don't know how much playing time he'll get this season as we still have Granger/Rush/Dunleavy/Dahntay ahead of him right now, so hopefully we do trade 1 or 2 of those guys so we can start his development right away, but as we all know with O'Brien, no matter what happens, Paul George will basically start his rookie season in the 2011-12 season unfortunately.

    The best part is, he wanted to be a Pacer. Mix that with his potential and we got a nice prospect. He talked about wanting to learn from Granger, if Granger takes him aside like Artest did with him, then he could help bring out the best in George.

    I think this is a great pick with George and we still have our expirings to use to get what we need. This pick would make it much easier to swallow trading Rush in a package to get the PG we need.

    Does anyone think that Paul George even looks kind of like DG?

    Great pick!

    This guy has so much potential...

    Now, all we need is our PG and a legit PF.

    We have some expiring contracts we can use.

    I'm excited to have him and especially since he's been looked at to be one of the best players in this draft in a few years.

    Welcome to Indy Paul!

    This guy was my third choice of player so I'm okay, Wish we could have gotten Hayward or Udoh though.

    Somebody mentioned that they hope Danny can bring out the best in him, I also hope its the other way around, Danny needs somebody who can challenge him.

    I like the pick, I hope he's not part of a trade we don't yet know about.

    I got the first 8 picks right, was kinda shocked the Jazz took Hayward, I thought they would take Babbit.

    Good Job, Larry. I had a feeling this was going to happen. Larry was talking "bpa and likes guys that play multiple positions".

    Welcome Paul. I was hoping that you would end up a Pacer. We really are the best fans in the league.

    Welcome to the Pacers Paul. Enjoy making a ton of money while playing for a coach that won't let you snif the floor or playing time.
