    Default Which Vet should Paul George study?

    http://insider.espn.go.com/nba/insid...Study11-George

    Paul George and Gerald Wallace

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------

    Both George and Wallace have excellent height and length for wing players, and both are top-level athletes. But Wallace flies around the court, creating chaos and making plays above the rim and in the passing lanes. As wing players go, he "beasts" it as well as anyone, while George floats into and out of plays.



    George is still a playmaker on defense despite his casual effort through parts of games. But "beasting" it like Wallace will help him jump up a couple of levels. He'll be more productive on the glass as well.

    Pre-injured Tracy McGrady

    If it's from a technical standpoint, I'll say Kobe. He was tied for second in the league last year with 15.......

    My thoughts too. I wouldn't mind him studying Tmac either.

    Tmac was better than anybody when he never got injured. He was just nasty

    Kobe. Because he has all the basics and know how to score in nearly every situation and Kobe's aggression and leadership.

    This is a no-brainer. He should study Lance Stephenson the best player on our team.

    "Beasting it" will also get him hurt, IMO. I'd rather he stay as he is and just improve his skills.

    Micheal Jordan... why not go ahead and study the "best"...

    A stretch but I will say both are explosive dunkers, have good defense, Paul needs to learn Jordan's craftiness with the ball, as well as study his intensity, and knack of scoring the ball...
    Why so SERIOUS

    Gotta go with Orlando T-Mac. Dude was vicious. Back then the debate was whos best between he and Kobe. If Paul George even sniffs T-Mac's level of production I will be satisfied

    I really had to ponder this and think about what PG showed las year. And not to sound cliche but I would say Reggie or Prince because The one thing I would like to see out of paul more consistantly is movement without the ball.
    he is the type of player who could move off of screens all day and is so athletic that he could really improve his production just by staying active at all times.

    Jordan. Jordan was amazing at the work he did before receiving the ball.

    I'd love for Paul to watch some post Jordan-rules era video of Michael fighting for the ball.

    He can watch just about anybody to improve his ballhandling. All he has to do is get lower...such an easy fix.

    Otherwise, I like the way he does everything else.

    He needs to study Andrew Toney. That man could play.

    Dang it, I just went and watched a Paul George highlight video. Now I'm super depressed about the lockout. I can't wait to see how much he improves over the summer.

    Offensively, Tracy McGrady.

    Defensively, just watch highlights of himself during the playoffs

    I'd love to see him emulate the Detroit version of Grant Hill: semi-efficient high level scoring, great passing, above average positional rebounding, good defense, incredibly smart and classy player.

    He should study different things from different players, but more importantly, he needs to grow into his own skin

    Study someone who can SHOOT. If you can shoot, you can do all the other peripheral stuff that everyone gets excited about here.

    Get a money J from 10-20 ft.; a money bank shot 10ft to the rim (rather than trying to swish much more difficult shots, like all the NBA idiots try to do) and, most importantly, BE MONEY AT THE LINE: get TWO WHEN IT COUNTS.

    In light of the last suggestion, it would be a good idea to have nothing to do with Al Harrington.

    Man, if my team was able to make LAYUPS, midrange jumpers, and FREETHROWS, even the FIX HAPPY David Stern couldn't stand in the way of championships. (No fix against HOT.)
