The Pacers' is still Danny Granger, but we are hoping that Paul George changes that.

In all seriousness, do you guys ever really see PG becoming a true option A? I don't see it.
Yes we do. All he really needs to do is put on some bulk and get some ball handling skills.

Well, without Granger his PPG has spiked up 1.3 points, despite playing an extra half a quarter and having the neon green light. So, despite being temporarily handed over the reigns, his per36 scoring numbers have gone down, as well as his FG%, while his per36 assists have only increased by 2 decimals. He'll be 23 by the end of the season. Do you really see his PPG soaring up over the 20's within the next couple of seasons?

Nice complimentary piece, but he won't be T-Mac.

Respectfully disagree.

He just doesn't have that killer instinct.

He has all the talent to be a 25+ ppg scorer. He doesn't have the mentality.

Even tonight where he breaks Reggis 3 record and set a career high in points. A guy like Lebron or Kobe would be "**** yea, I'm killing it out here. Try and stop me bitches!" but Paul was "Well this is gong well. You know what, I"m staying up all the way to midnight tonight...... as long as mom doesn't find out."

I agree with you but that doesn't mean it's impossible for him to be a couple time all-star and best player on a team like the 04 pistons.

There still is that small chance that his mentality changes and he grows ice in his veins like Granger did last season.

The thing with the Pistons was 3-4 of those guys were the best player at any give time, usually. George couldn't be the clear-cut best on a contending team.



With the stats or that he won't be T-Mac good?
I think a prime George could fit in for Prince on the 04 Pistons. Problem is the Pacers aren't the 04 Pistons.
