Most people would think I'm talking about this guy:
But SoCal has given the Pacers another gift:
With his recent games against the Nets and now Mavs (probably would have torched the T-Wolves if it weren't for foul trouble), I am just getting chills. This kid has it all. He has become deadly behind the arc like that other SoCal guy that gave us a few good memories. His defense, oh he's just a 6'9" 2 guard that can cover Derrick Rose. Oh did I mention he could win the dunk contest too?
This kid has the whole package. How did he last until #10? He still needs to polish his skills, but I have no doubt that he will. He has a great work ethic, his head is on straight, and gets along with the team. This kid could go down as one of, if not the best Pacer of all time. Thats how much potential he has.
I'm trying not to get too excited, but its hard not too. He has a ways to go, but nights like tonight will become more of the norm for PG24. He's not gonna have to wear Kobe's for much longer, he's getting his own shoe soon.
Until T-Bird did a write up on Paul George I hadn't even heard of Paul George, and I don't think I'm alone there. Now he's quickly becoming something very very special in front of all of our eyes.
Indeed. I was sold on Paul George after I read T-Bird's write up on him. That draft night, I sat on Facebook commenting that I was hoping for Paul and after we actually drafted him....

We should be thanking the stars every night that PG enrolled at Fresno State. There's no way he'd be a Pacer with more exposure.
I didn't get why he didn't go to Gtown Thomson really wanted him there. The Pg we saw tonight was the sophomore PG at Fresno he had so much confidence and a swager that he was the man a mentality most star players have.
Really who we should thank is his HS coach for playing him as a PF not a wing. PG played a lot of PF at Fresno also.
I dont get how any good scout wanted Wes J over Paul. Paul was literally better in every part of the game it was very puzzling to me. I loved watching PG at Fresno seeing him in BnG was really amazing he really has a rare ability
that not many players have. What amazed me about Paul is how easy he made the game look and also how good he was at making tough shots.
Qunicy Miller IMO is the closest player to Paul George in this draft I have the same feeling about him that I had about Paul at Fresno.
Man, I wish we'd tanked that year instead of trying to win. Just think of who we could have picked!
I would of took Paul if we would of got #3 or lower( I would of traded back obviously if he was gonna go as late as 10). John Wall and Cousins I had rated higher. Greg Monroe was the guy I really missed on I had him at late lottery in the draft.
We shouldnt of tanked last year but yes we should of only played young guys.(same thing the previous years) NOLA isnt tanking they play hard as hell but they dont have the talent. But playing young guys and letting them grow is something we really needed to do so we knew what we had and could draft and plan accordingly.
I didn't think Indiana would actually take George prior to the draft, but as we got closer it started to look like it could happen. I was very pleased to see he was available.
It's amusing to look back at my pre-draft post about considering replacing Rush with George at SG. Not only did George take his place, Rush also got shipped out. George has the upsides of Rush with defense, athleticism, and is developing his shooting without the eccentric quirks of Rush that drove many nuts.
We ended up with a top 3 or 4 caliber pick with at #10. It's worked out extremely well. I'm really happy with our young players.
