Thread: the future of paul george

  1. #1

    Default the future of paul george

    many sources before and after the draft said that paul george is going to become a big star in the league in 3-5 years

    i look at him and i see a rudy gay type of player

    one who is athletic, can get to the basket for a dunk, takes open shots, steals the ball, hustles on the offensive and defensive ends

    according a few sources hes also compared to danny granger and i can see it too

    hes a shooter and defensive player like danny

    the future wing lineup of those 2 is very exciting to think about

    but im asking will he surpass, equal, or finish below danny granger's talent

    just your opinion

    I voted below because I have nothing to go with on the other two options. I will start with low expectations and hopefully they will increase as I get to see him play more.

    way above in my view he will be a way better scorer and defender and does all the little things right.

    It wouldn't take much. What leadership qualities has Danny shown? Roy has been here 3 seasons and has already assumed more of a leadership role than Danny.

    much like roy and dc have shown so far

    also outside of the pacers rudy gay doesnt seem like much of a talker but he leads that team by example and makes every needed shot and does the small things

    With all of the tools Paul George has I expect him to start becoming a perennial All-Star 3 years from now.

    For a guy who is the "captain," I really can't imagine anyone being as poor of a leader as Danny Granger.

    Hibbert, Collison, McRoberts, Dunleavy, Posey, Foster, Ford, D. Jones, and Price are all better vocal leaders than Granger.

    Several of those guys plus Hansbrough, are all better leaders by example.

    There are many questions yet to be determined as far as whether or not George can be a better player in 3-5 years. But the issue of leadership is definitely not one of them.

    so what will this mean for danny in the future if paul, mainly a SF will surpass him

    we also have brandon who is going to get even better than he is now

    if we dont have danny anymore this is what our starting lineup would look like based on the young core we have so far

    pg collison
    sg rush
    sf george
    pf hansbrough
    c hibbert

    Lots of optimism about a guy who has proven very little in college or the NBA. I like him, but he has got a loooong way to go before reaching Danny's level. Until I see signs that he is putting it together (which is a ways away and not entirely fair to PG given the opportunities he's allowed), I have to go with under DG's level.

    thats what we're probably going to do mostly in the future is have paul at SG and danny at SF with brandon coming off the bench

    works out well

    I know he has a beautiful shot, good athleticism, and all the physical tools required to be a sensational player. I just haven't seen the production or the intelligence yet.

    sure is, I just wanted to be able to vote. For some reason I guess you don't want this common opinion to be an option. I prefer polls with accurate relevant results but to each his own.

    Even in college he wasn't setting the world on fire. The WAC is pretty weak, and he was only a second team all-conference player? I'm not dogging on the guy, as I said earlier I like him, I'm just playing devil's advocate.

    I think he'll be a 20+ ppg player and will do more than Danny, but he can Danny are going to work well with each other.
