    Default Can Paul Geogre become the greatest Pacer?

    Reggie said on the TNT broadcast of Knicks-Pacers game that Paul George could become the greatest Pacer ever and surpass him. I can see him leading the Pacers to a title but surpassing Reggie

    Well, if you compare their productivity at a particular age, rather than at number of years of experience, I could easily see where the statement could be made. Age wise, we would be comparing George's 3rd season with Reggie's rookie season. So, from that perspective, George has a 1500 point lead (from his first two seasons) and is averaging about 7 points more than Reggie did at the same age, Reggie's rookie season.

    So, assuming George has Reggie's longevity and stays with the Pacrs, their is a chance he could surpass Reggie with the Pacers in points. Of course Reggie had an extremely outgoing personality and communicated well with his fans, so exceeding Reggie in the hearts of longtime fans certainly remains in doubt.

    Hard to compare PG and Reggie IMO. PG does it all, scores rebounds, assists, steals) while Reggie was purely shooting but was amazing. Idk will be tough but PG has shown a tremendous leap from last year and if he continues at this level, he will be a force to be reckon with.

    Since the word "Can" begins the question of Paul George becoming the greatest Pacer, the answer is "Yes."

    Assuming the real question is: Is it likely? I'd have to go with "Maybe" at this point. It's just way too soon to be sure. I think we'll know way more by Jan. 2014. If his offense continues to improve, and his defense remains this high, and he doesn't develop injury trouble... I think in that scenario he probably would be. Don't know if he's capable of clutch offense, though.

    If we are talking about surpassing Reggie as a PACER, then I would say that the maybe is very unlikely. Looking at the history of the game over the last 25 years, how many players out of all the players who have played for only one team have played for that team long enough to match Reggie's output. So, what is the likelihood George both spends his career here AND exceeds Reggie's stats? Not likely, but possible.

    It's not out of the realm of possibility.
    "We've got to be very clear about this. We don't want our players hanging around with murderers," said Larry Bird, Pacers president.
