I caught up with Paul George after practice today. Here is the interview. The audio is on the player after the brief text intro (just like last time with the Hansbrough interview):
Shear Sports Podcast Personalities: Paul George (Indiana Pacers)
Shear Sports Podcasts: Paul George
by Adam Shear
On NBA Draft night 2010 many Indiana Pacers fans were excited to see who the team might select to help remerge the franchise into the playoff picture. However, after selecting Paul George, a wing player, to a roster already full of them, Pacers Nation was skeptical of the selection. Not only that, but George is incredibly young at only 20 years old and had the terms raw, potential, and possibly not NBA ready thrown next to his name which made fans even wearier.
Now in February Pacers fans cannot say enough positive things about George, who has turned into one of the most promising young players in the NBA. George currently ranks second in rookie PER according to ESPN.com, trailing only the Rookie of the Year favorite and NBA All-Star Blake Griffin. I sat down with Paul recently to talk about how this season is going for him and where he sees his NBA career going in this edition of Shear Sports Podcast Personalities.
