    (new thread) Is Paul George becoming a Player of the Week?

    Oh Paul, why do you, West, Hill, Roy and Danny suck so much? Why are you so much worse than the good players for other teams? Shouldn't we trade Paul now while his value is at it's peak? Is there a limit to the amount of bitter sarcasm I can pour out?

    So many questions without answers.

    This is great and well deserved.

    Now it'll be interesting to see how well he plays for the next 5-10 games after receiving this recognition. This is definitely a key stretch in his development.

    Speaking from what is now several years of observation, I'd say the answer to this question is "No". Glad I could help you with one answer, anyway.

    Ha! You beat me to it. I was checking the rest of the thread to see if anyone else had said this before posting my remark!

    The Indiana Pacers’ Paul George and the Golden State Warriors’ David Lee today were named Eastern and Western Conference Players of the Week, respectively, for games played Monday, Dec. 10, through Sunday, Dec. 16.

    George led the Pacers to a 3-0 week which included wins over Central Division rivals Cleveland and Detroit. George averaged 23.3 points, 7.0 rebounds, 4.3 assists, 1.7 steals and 1.3 blocks. He shot .474 from three-point range on the week and ranks eighth in the league with 54 made three-point field goals on the season.

    When looking at the incredible talent and all-around abilities Paul George has, I can't help but think
    that right now he is starting to exceed what at one time I had high hopes Jonathan Bender would
    be able to do for the Pacers. An explosive guy that is dangerous both taking it to the rim, as well
    as from the perimeter.

    The signs are pointing to Paul George being a very special talent we are seeing developing right
    before our eyes. If he just keeps cultivating that killer instinct...look out.....

    Good point about Bender but I always figured that he just couldnt stay healthy enough to reach his potential.

    After the zero points game, I was really worried that he might be another Derrick McKey disappointment. A player with all the physical tools and defensive ability but without the desire or hunger to really be a consistent scoring option. Then all of a sudden he's embracing his inner Dwayne Wade and scoring, blocking shots, and passing the ball better at an elite level.

    Now that he's won this honor he'll have a target on his back. I hope he's ready for the next phase of his development. The Detroit game was the first time that I noticed him receiving double teams. He made the Pistons pay for it by passing to West and Hill in scoring positions. He'll need to keep that up but also keep attacking the basket so the defense stays off balance.

    Maybe it's just in my head, but the skepticism is oozing out of your post.

    I'm one of his bigger critics, but he's been very good this week. I'm very happy to be wrong right now, especially in thinking he didn't have the guts to play physically. When his shooting comes back to Earth, I'll be happy to know that he can get to the line and/or shoot more mid-range shots.

    I've been somewhat of a PG critic, not of him per se, but of the expectations people have for him. It's not really logical but him going up through contact and trying to bang one on Spencer Hawes's mullet, and giving him a little stare after, feels like a light coming on. I still think a lot of people have too big of expectations for what he can become, but I'm beginning to believe a small bit that he really can be a number one offensive option.

    Sorry but this is in your head this time.

    I said "Well deserved" & I meant "well deserved". In the past week he played beyond all-star level, he actually played at a truely elite level.

    Doesn't mean he will continue on that pace but for the week he won the award, seeing as how he did it while we were winning (important that he wasn't just putting up numbers in losing efforts) I think he more than deserved the award.

    I have been tough on him this season because I expected more than what we were getting up until just about 3 weeks ago but I am more than willing to sing his praises and frankly with the way he has played since Chicago he deserves a lot of praise.

    I only get disgusted when some of his fans take the first good game and then use that to try and shove Danny out the door. I still believe that they work very well together.

    God, can you imagine how much better this team would be if we had OJ Mayo, Luis Scola and Elton Brand instead of those losers?

    Finally PG gets some love other than the Pacers. I hope he keeps it up and he gets some more love nationwide.
