    George is going to be a guy commonly recognized as a superstar level player next season. He's been a top 10 player in the NBA since December 4th.

    Since that time (35 games, over 3/4 of the season)

    19.6 ppg
    8.5 rpg
    4.3 apg

    2.05 steals
    .7 blocks

    55% True scoring (well above league average efficiency)
    3.9 free throws per game (on a clear upward trajectory, we've all seen him aggressively force officials to give him calls as of late, and he's got to the line about 6.5 times per game in February, even with the stinker vs. Brooklyn)

    Those numbers during that period compared to the NBA leaders this season would put him

    #12 in points per game right after Tony Parker
    #23 in rebounds per game tied with Larry Sanders
    #37 in assists per game right with Brandon Knight, a starting point guard
    #3 in steals per game, behind only Mike Conley and Chris Paul
    # 32 in 3 point percentage (.394) tied with Carlos Delfino

    Then take into account his elite defense night in and night out, which aside from steals largely isn't reflected in the traditional stats.

    We don't need to imagine what a "superstar" in Indiana would look like, you need only look as far as Paul George's last 35 games, he's easily been performing like a top 10 player in the NBA since he broke out.
    glad you posted this so i dont have to do the work

    never stopped believing in this kid. i saw it in his game as a rookie and am sooooooooo happy he is progressing this well and this fast.

    At this risk of sounding hyperbolic: Paul George is the most important professional athlete in Indianapolis since _________.


    Oh, and quarterbacks don't count.

    G2Zoners are getting tats because PG dropped the Triple Dub (one of the goals on the G2Tat2 challenge that was started this month), PG has said he is paying for said tats.

    They know tattoos are permanent, right?

    I happily admit that I didn't have faith in Paul George. I thought he would be a fine NBA player, his ceiling around Rudy Gay level. I didn't think, especially considering the first few weeks of the season, he would surpass Rudy Gay so freaking quickly...

    I still am at a loss for how quickly he got so good. I still almost can't believe it. His handles while still a little clumsy have shown significant improvement, his jumpshot has gotten much much better, especially considering how inconsistent it was in his rookie year, his defense as always is stellar, his rebounding is #2 for Small Forwards, and what has surprised me the most is his improved passing. He's averaging about 4 assists a game, and it could just as easily be 6 if we made shots at a normal clip. The guy's game has taken a big jump so quickly its astonishing. He's just 22 years old...

    If I do have to make some complaints is his FG%. I know he had a rough start which bogs it down, but 42% is bleh. Sometimes he falls in love with jumpshots or the 3 ball too much, when I'd like to see him attack the basket and get to the line. The good news is he will probably be getting more respect from the refs, which will definitely help him shoot more free throws helping his efficiency.

    Gerald Green wouldn't give any hints, but said if he's able to pull off this 1 dunk in the comp it'll be the greatest of all time. Buckle up


    So would it be wrong of me to reply that to obtain maximum elevation someone should pump fake the ball to him?

    Good God did you see him bite on that Ben Gordon show the ball fake out at the three point line? I think when Gerald finally landed 2 more plays had occurred.

    I do wish Green weren't such a dumbass player. If only because he really does seem like a good guy, says all the right things and all that. Could just be that his people told him to learn how to sell yourself if you wanna get back to the league and it's all BS, but still, I'd be lying if I said that stuff isn't why I defend Roy and have become a fan of Ian. Just genuine, nice dudes. Green seems like he'd be a lot of fun to root for if there were ever anything at all to root for.

    Yes. I really don't know why that happens. No matter if the game is in Charlotte or Indiana he always plays great against them.

    I loved watching Paul George abuse smaller players on the block. I can't wait to see him do that more frequently (as he gets to start playing against SGs).

    That's it for me, guys. I'll see you all after Easter.
    Welcome to Pacers Digest! New around here? Here are three tips for making the forum a great place to talk about Pacers basketball.

    • Log in. Even if you want to read instead of post, it's helpful because it lets you:
    • Change your signature options. You can hide all signatures by choosing "Settings" (top right) then "General Settings" (middle left) and unchecking the box "Show Signatures" (in the "Thread Display Options" area).
    • Create an ignore list. I know it may seem unneighborly. But you're here to talk about the Pacers, not argue with someone who's just looking for an argument. Most of the regular users on here make use (at least occasionally) of the "Ignore" feature. Just go to "Settings" -> "Edit Ignore List" and add the names.

    Enjoy your time at PD!

    You know what you're getting from Danny and I, as well, believe in him. A lot. He can and will contribute to this team.
    And whoever says he's not a good player, well, that's just his opinion, man....

    First game I had to miss all year. Can someone fill me in on a few things.

    It shows hibbert shot over 50% - Where were the bulk of his shots? Also does anyone know if they came late in the shot clock? I have noticed that over the past few games hibbert has been the one getting the ball with only a few seconds left being forced to take a awkward shot.

    Pendergraph also appeared to have yet another good shooting night. Did he get his open jumpers again? How was his defense?

    Oh, the posts graphic-er and I had during the 010 draft as who was better. Graph wanted the Pacers to draft Gordon, and I wanted Bird to draft Paul.

    A large shoutout from me to Mr. Bird for drafting PAUL GEORGE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I'll say graph has been gracious to admit PG was the better of the 2 players much earlier in both their careers. As I will add, GH is a fine BB player who I keep tabs on his games. I always wish him the best, except when playing the Pacers.

    Yes, JP hit open jumpers. What surprised me was his passing ability. I sure hope he gets more PT, and it's not "thanks for your contribution when we needed it" type thing.

    I think he got 2 feeds for easy dunks, 2 put backs. I think he was 1/2 on postups, and at least 2 of the other 3 missed shots were on a possession where he scored on a put back at the end.

    Pendergraph looked more mortal today, but played very well in the second half and got a cpl jumpers to go again.
