Would you give Paul George $94M/5YRS?
 

 
Derrick Rose Rule: The rule allows a player finishing his rookie contract to make 30 percent of a team's salary cap -- up from 25 percent -- if he's twice been voted an All-Star starter, twice been voted All-NBA or won an MVP award.
LeBron & KD will probably get voted 1st Team. Probably Melo & Blake at 2nd Team. Then after that, Paul George, David Lee, LaMarcus Aldridge, Paul Pierce & Luol Deng probably have the best shot at the last two forward spots. I like George's chances this season (best record of that group, and an all star selection). And if he can do it next year too, he might sneak in on that superstar money image




Pacers could always just let him hit the open market (where he'd only get $58M/4YRS at most). But there's still the (unlikely) possibility they may p!ss him off, and he'd take the QO out of spite (image @ Jennings).


If it comes down to it, would you give him the $94M? (only $2M more per year than Rudy Gay, but Gay's probably not the best justification for George's agent to be throwing around)

if you look at it from the organizations perspective, i'd say no for a couple of reasons. i think he's a very good player but he's not ever going to be a "superstar". his impact on the game isn't worth that type of money. secondly, the pacers have a poor attendance record. so he's not generating revenue either.

so putting those reasons together i think you have to say no. let him go or trade him and build around hansboro so atleast the hicks will come out and support the team even though they'll suck.

1. Um, what? His breakout season has been this year - how would you know if he's going to be a superstar or not? He has the skill set to be one.

2. Um, what? Poor attendance record = George not making revenue for them? What? Having a star to represent the Pacers in a big way can only help their attendance.

1. to answer your first point, i don't think he will develop the skillset offensively to be a superstar. i don't know but nobody really knows. he could or he couldn't develop offensively to a superstar level. you kinda have to make judgements about these things and i'm putting my money on that he won't.

2. yes, poor attendance record = george not making money for them. you're making my point for me actually. he's having a break out year and people aren't coming out to support him. there have been many players on bad teams that sell tickets because they're good and exciting to watch (i.e. raptors vince carter, allen iverson, magic tracy mcgrady). paul george doesn't have the ability to do that in indiana. there could be other reasons why they aren't selling but the point stands. paul george isn't doing much if anything to help the situation.

so why give a guy superstar money if he isn't producing to a superstar level and isn't selling tickets like a superstar? it doesn't make sense.

if they get eric gordon...then attendance will raise, does that mean he's a superstar?

no. it's not just about selling tickets, it's about producing too. and it's not just raising attendance but how much you do it by too.

let's put it this way:
you know what the raptors, magic, timberwolves and wizards all have in common? they all have better attendance than the pacers. now consider the fact that those teams have a combined win-loss record 108-206 and, for the exception of the wiz and wolves (love has been injured though), don't have a player of george's caliber. the pacers are a 3rd seed that could be a 2nd seed in the east. they're 25th out of 30 teams in attendance. they can't fall too much more. so they can pay george nearly 100 million to not produce at a superstar level and not sell tickets or they can drop to let's say 27th in attendance, still most likely be a playoff team in the east, and save 100 million.

now there could be other reasons why they aren't selling, maybe it still has to do fans still being turned off by malice in the palace or the local economy. but either way paul george isn't doing much to help the sitation. he's not worth the paper.

In todays NBA I think hes a superstar. The nba is that bad right now talent wise. If they dont pay it to him another team would. Kyrie Irving will get it too. They arent superstars when compared to other players in history, but the leveo the nba is right now they are

i disagree. i actually think the nba is as good as it's ever been talent wise. it might be bad team wise, but there's a ton of talent in the league. and i don't think george is on kyrie's level. i think kyrie will be a legit superstar.

you are crazy judging a 22/23 year old kid who is in his third year in the league. Look at the strides he's made in each season? This kid has the hunger to be the best, he's no where near his peak... and also he plays 2 way ball... Gotta respect that..

If the pacers paid Roy Hibbert max money, they better find a way to pay Paul George
