    Default Is The Only Thing Keeping Paul George From Being A Superstar....

    Is media? He has the skills, getting on ESPN, fans of different teams and casual NBA fans are even calling him a superstar, 3rd place in MVP ladder...but do you feel PG needs commercials, shoe deal, ect to become a household name? I was thinking a 'chip would do it, but CP3 and Blake don't have anything but they have said above. What do you guys think?

    I think he is already a superstar, the media treats him like it, and he is in a couple of commercials as well

    The media definitely treats him like a superstar

    Yes, he has been elevated to superstar status by anyone paying attention. I see nothing but 20+ppg averages for the next decade or so for him. He will be a perennial all-star.

    The thing keeping him from being a superstar is time. A full season of this, and in the playoffs, and then it's legit. Right now he's playing at that level but it's premature.

    He is already referred to in superstar terms by the media. You could really tell with the Portland game where we lost but still a lot of headlines and stories focused on PG's play.

    If he keeps this up for the season and does well in the playoffs we'll probably start seeing more endorsement deals.

    PG has commercials.

    He also had the one where he was featured for the tip off ad that I can't find.

    Like 95% of the league has shoe deals. Signature shoes are really rare, there's only what, like 5? Kobe, Lebron, Durant, Howard, Wade's Chinese shoes, any others?

    He's at Star level. Superstar implies that he'd be hyped even if the Pacers were losing. I don't think he's there yet.

    For everyone that had been saying you don't need a superstar to win a champioinship, Paul George is going to show us this year why it's much easier to win a championship with a bona fide superstar on your team. I don't think anyone, in or outside of Indiana, can doubt that PG is top 5 in the league.

    I think the only thing holding him back at this point is his low free-throw attempt average. I think he has arrived in all other facets, including the media.

    His play has spoken for itself. He's a Superstar.

    I look at the word "Superstar" differently than most people. To me, Blake Griffin is a "Superstar", but Paul George isn't. In contrast, Paul George is an "Elite" player, but Blake Griffin isn't.

    Wth the way he's been playing, the only thing keeping Paul George from superstar status is the acceptance that he truly is a superstar in this league.

    Media does not and cannot keep anyone from being a superstar. They aren't in charge

    The refs don't think he is, no doubting that. We will find out Tues. night what they think.
