Shout out to all the stat lovers... good report on our first rounder....
What no one is mentioning is that Paul George actually is showing well when it comes to statistical comparison to his fellow rookies. George ranks only behind Blake Griffin, John Wall, and Ed Davis in PER for those who have played substantial time at 15.45 rating. If that doesn't sound that great, also take into effect that Danny Granger leads the Pacers with 17.5.
Even got a shoutout from Bill Simmons during the Pacers-Clips outing.
@SportsGuy33 "Blink Test on Indy's Paul George: that dude has an NBA body/glide/polish to him. Can see why @chadfordinsider + scouts were gushy about him."
