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
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.

Get the fu*k outta here with that bullsh*t, George is one of the best defenders in the NBA, Gay doesnt defend..

Alot of you BX dudes just look at statlines n sh*t and only care about offensive numbers. Little do yall know he is a fantastic defender who is improving each year on offense.

Defensive players stay going underappreciated on this site.

if you dont think he worth the money then fine, but dont say bullsh*t like he is the next rudy gay when they are totally dif players (PG is two way player, Gay is one dimensional).

Kat, bet u a lot of these fools never seen a pacer game.

And to dude talkin bout he will never reach kd potential..maybe not with his j, but pg will be a better all around player when its said n done. Kd can't play d, he just shoots over smaller defenders. Once pg grows more confidence, I'm sure he will add that to his game.

If he plays this way in the playoffs, leads them to the ECF and comes back next year better than I can see him getting the max from Indiana. But, I don't think he gets that 5/98 or whatever it was you said. He'll be closer to 5/85 or a little less which is still a damn good deal.

Paul George KD good

He will never have the natural offensive game and feel that Stickman has and no he does not have Stickman potential.

If anyone PG reminds me of is young Andre Iguodala without the playmaking, both players excellent athletically and can get a itt at the defensive end. Similar situation too as Philly was lured into giving Iggy that big contract hoping he can take the next step.

IMO I could see PG in his prime at max being a 22 and 8 guy on close to 50% shooting if he improves his jumper. 100 million for him though I'll pass.


i'm a pacers fan but i have no illusions about his limitations and inconsistencies.

Absolutely not.

I am a Pacers fan and Paul George fan, but he is Robin , not Batman. Same problem that Danny Granger has. He needs a true superstar to play alongside with ala Andre Igudoala factor. Same scenario. But with Roy Hibbert being vastly overpaid and the Pacers needing to make sure PG does not leave, he will be overpaid as well.

Probably not worth all that money (not taking away from him, he's a great player) but if you're a small market team you have to ensure keeping talent within the organization because the Pacers aren't exactly an attractive free agent destination. They lucked out with West but practically the rest of their team has been built through the draft including trading a pick for George Hill

It's become obvious that you just grossly underrate Paul George with the "tim thomas" comparison..

Tim Thomas has never been an all-star nor has he ever averaged more than 15ppg.. At any point, nor was his skills ever as polished as georges at any point, nor was he as fast or as athletic.. The more I think about it the more I wonder why Katalist hasn't called you out for this comparison? George is WAY more advance at the age of 22 than Thomas ever was... fu*k is you thinking bringing up Tim Thomas.
