    Paul George: Biggest Disappointment of the 2013-2014 season

    I thought this kid was going to catapult himself into superstardom.

    Have you ever seen such a massive drop off in production from start of season to now the way we've seen Paul George basically collapse?

    Defensively he's worth ten of Harden. Shame about the offense.


    Good to see someone on here calling George out though by making this thread, if it was LBJ or Durant who fell off like this you would never hear the end of it, nobody seems to hold George too the same expectations though.

    It was his performance in the playoffs last year. He played great basketball and took it up a level, and I think people expected that to carry over to this season.

    And he has improved this year, no doubt, but I think people want to see him scoring 25 a game, and he's just not going to do that because that is not how the Pacers run their offense. Everybody gets time with the ball, like with the Spurs (though the style may differ). Pacers play team ball. You put Melo on that team, and his average is going to drop.


    I think Paul is expected to focus on defense, and the Pacers have encouraged the development of Stephenson, which has reduced the increase in PG's averages. This is similar to Granger getting to a certain level and then regressing a bit when the Pacers started to develop PG. It is good for the team.

    They have the best record in the east right now, despite a slip in play, and PG's had a bad couple of games over the last couple of nights, but overall he is having a great year.

    Harden defense has gotten better as the season has went on, its not as bad as it once was.. but people who don't watch Rockets game will assume he's a poor defender just because of his reputation, but lets not act like Curry is a outstanding defender either... if he's worth 10 of Harden of defense then that same argument can be made for Curry

    I'm thinking it's the off the court stuff getting to his head, with the baby momma drama and now getting catfished.

    I think the obvious reason for that is because he simply isn't in their category. PG may be top five at his position, but he isn't even top-ten in the league, and LBJ and KD are the two best players on the planet.

    Paul George: Biggest Disappointment of the 2013-2014 season

    He got off to a good start and some people were elevating him to almost elite status. He's regressed since then noticeably.

Melo will become the new Jordan of the league we are so lucky to have him!!!

    I would take him over Harden, simply because as good as Harden is offensively, he is that bad defensively.

    But I did think those that were trying to put PG on LeBron/Durant level early on were being ridiculous. He is a 2nd tier star at best right now.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I see PG as a play-off player. We just have to wait to see what PG and the pacers do in the play-offs.

    why bring Curry into this?

    Harden is a poor defender. Period. I have watched the Rox play 30 times this year. His biggest issue that I see is, he has poor defensive awareness. And he just isn't quick enough with his feet to stop blow by's.
