    I don't want to get too excited too soon. Yes, flashes of great play have been seen, but until he is consistent about it, he is just not there. Yet.

    He had another really good game, though this was unlike the other two in that I felt like I was back to watching the Paul George who isn't very assertive, makes 'cute' decisions instead of hard/strong decisions with the ball, and was hitting more perimeter shots again. A good game, but not an impressive one to me.

    I want more of the Paul George who you can tell pretty quickly is on a mission and asserts himself rather than being cute and/or taking a lot of perimeter shots.

    Paul's doing well and he may turn out to be the best Pacer ever. He's beginning to show some things that the greats show on a regular basis, so I am hopeful and maybe a bit surprised. With that said, most superstars at 22 years old are averaging 20ppg or higher at the age of 22. The very best like LeBron, Mello, etc. are even higher. I think they were both around 28 or 29ppg. Even Rudy Gay averaged 20ppg...and that was at 21. The good news is that Paul should have no problem cracking 20ppg as an NBA pro and that means we have a #1 option here.

    The sniff test of sorts, to me, will be to start doing what JayRedd has been calling for on Twitter: More pick and rolls with Paul and David West. It doesn't seem to be run much, but when it does good things usually happen, and it allows Paul to show off an underrated part of his game (yes, even in the face of his terrible, cutesy turnovers): His passing. The dude can distribute the ball. If he can prove to be consistently good at that if we run him with PnR's on a more regular basis, that's huge because it makes him much harder to guard. Play him for the passes he can make, and you leave him open to shoot from 18 feet or drive. He can kill you from 18 feet, but for now driving is a box of chocolates.

    Let's wait until we get to the best Pacer ever comparison. He may get there, but it may take a while
