http://www.rotoworld.com/recent/nba/1731/paul-georgePaul George attributes his recent success to game-day workouts that include 300 to 400 extra shots and a full-body workout before tip-off.
Associate head coach Brian Shaw had been trying to get George to buy into the same game-day routine as Kobe Bryant, who Shaw played with and coached in L.A. The approach has worked like gangbusters, with George averaging 21.4 points, seven rebounds, 3.6 assists, 1.1 steals and a block per game in the month of December. Owners who held on to George despite a frustrating two months are being handsomely rewarded for their patience.

I wonder what the hang up was to doing this before now? Shaw has worked with Kobe. PG has said many times that Kobe is his favorite player. It seems that it would only be natural To want to tap into that resource and give it a try. I'm glad Shaw is our Associate Head Coach and I'm glad He was able to convince Paul to do something different.
