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'm going.to agree with this. NBA talent is by far the worst its ever been. Pretty shocked by anyone saying its the best its been. it's really not a league full of superstar but players who would have been fringe all stars maybe 6 years ago are being ranked top 15 in the NBA today. There aren't five players I can name who can dribble, shoot the three, athletic, unselfish and under 25 with Georges skill set and height. You have to.pay him that. The market requires it and only.because the talent pool is small. The only deep position in the NBA is PG and maybe SF. Being that George can play SG .a position that has the least talent next to center his stock becomes even more valuable.



Only.thing.I don't agree with is the wording with you saying he's a superstar right now in todays NBA. He's not. I think his odds of becoming one are greater in todays in NBA than the ones prior is what I would say.NM

He grew two inches a summer ago.. I don't think many are aware of that. That's why his value will be high as well.

Yes I'd give him all that money and not think twice. You're not paying him for what he is now, but what you know he'll become, based off past improvement. He has all the athletic ability in the world and the potential to be elite offensively (improve jumper/handle).

pacers have to pay him, his talent, size and potenial are off the charts....which is why i think they'll be a 50-win team for years to come but not serious championship contenders.

ok ima just say this: if he gets injured to a point where he misses significant time, they'll just be on the hook for a long dumb contract. these contracts always seem like a great idea when a person is playing well, but once they get injured or skills magically decline...people point the finger at the gm for roping the high priced free agent. 14 mil a year in the new system is what he is worth imo. i think 14 million is a good salary for a paul george in the league. once these old over priced deals fade out people will understand more about why i say 14 mil is a good amount.

consistency and durability is unpredictable. but if you are like that after 5 years...its a resumee builder. personally i dont see it being logical to pay him the max after they just signed hibbert to the max. (well matched the blazers maximum offer). we shall see what happens in due time. but joe johnson looked like he deserved a high amount, but now he is called overpriced. its always funny how these things play out.

They run it mostly through west since most teams can't match up with their bigs. Paul George can create shots by himself.

couldn't you say this exact same thing for any player who gets a big contract?


i don't know what their cap situation is but won't indy have a little flexibility once they eventually get rid of granger?

Hell yea I would pay him. He can be kd good in a couple years, maybe even better all around. If he can add some muscle, and work on his jumper some more, he will be a better version of kd. And to all my pacer fans, Paul George reminds me of Jonathan bender, but a beastier version. I always rooted for bender , but them injuries got him.

not true. there is more individual talent today in the league then there has ever been . there are plenty of player who make dumb decisions with talent too like demarcus cousins or aren't utilizing their talent fully like tyreke evans. but that doesn't mean they aren't talented.

and i think the nba gms need to be smarter. there aren't a lot of paul george's is true. paul george is pretty unique in when you put it all together. but being unique doesn't mean you are a valuable commodity. you have to look at impact on winning. tim thomas was a really unique player too: 6-10 can shoot, handle, long, athletic, etc. and he got a huge contract after his rookie deal. but he didn't live up to his potential or the contract and never had a huge impact on winning. and i don't think george has a huge impact on winning, atleast not 100 million worth. and i don't see him becoming a superstar type player.
