You might also want to cut PG some slack given the fact LeBron's been in the league close to a decade. Give PG24 time. Yes, he has some things to learn.
Oh, we're still finding petty things to cry about?
Trade Paul!!!! He sucks!!! He's not a team first player!!! We don't need him!!! But on the serious side, I'm kinda shocked at how much hate PG is getting here. No he's not Melo, that's the dumbest thing I've ever heard. Paul is a team player and infact made 7-8 very nice passes in the game I can remember right off the top of my head. The point is though, Paul has confidence he can hit any shot he wants. Just like KD, LeBron do, because while he isn't as good as LeBron or KD, of you consider anyone besides those two to be a superstar, then your damn right Paul is one as well. What the hell are we even mad at Paul for this game? 10-19 shooting 27 point 7 reb 3 assts. he played perfectly fine on offense. I agree he needs to quit complaining so much, but god damn some of you need to chill out here
There's a necessary evil to having such a great player, and a great team overall. Pretty much every great player flops, whines to the officials, can attempt to hero ball an occasion or two, and celebrates their great plays.
"It's just unfortunate that we've been penalized so much this year and nothing has happened to the Pistons, the Palace or the city of Detroit," he said. "It's almost like it's always our fault. The league knows it. They should be ashamed of themselves to let the security be as lax as it is around here."

Best record in the league, and Pacers fans are complaining about their 23 year old star who is full of potential.
Incredible. Never in a million years would I have guessed that PG would be the Digest whipping boy this season.
Firstly, as far as complaining to the officials about calls, you are talking about every player or coach in every sport ever. Nothing special going on here. It's not going away, get used to it.
Second, in terms of complaining and getting in trouble on the court, Lance does need to watch himself. He's fourth in the league with eight techs; PG meanwhile is tied for 22nd with four. Our dear leader Coach Vogel is third for coaches with six. Do we complain a lot? Kind of. Is what we're doing weird? Not really.
Man some of you guys need to lighten up. They're young guys having a good time. God forbid someone enjoys themselves playing basketball.
DG for 3
I don't mind the highlight plays when they work and when we're winning. Otherwise, just control the damn game and win it.
The excessive whining to the refs is getting very old, though, Paul George.
Pacers rank 23rd in A/T ratio @ 1.4 per game. Love to see the BnG get that ratio up closer to 2:1.
Tonite we had 19 Assists and 14 TO's. Eliminate the 4 in a row that cost us momentum and a 17 pt lead and its easily a 2:1 ratio. Bird stated Turnovers.
I believe no other stat exemplifies more accurately the point Legend had made.
* when the basketball is turned over it does not allow this team to get back and setup on DEFENSE. essentially were not only throwing the ball away but handing the other team 2 pts on a fastbreak transition layup.
A team like the Heat/OKC will pound us right into the offeseason giving away EASY buckets.
