Our team is built to move the ball, up pace tempo, team defense, everyone eats. You will find most of our wins come because 5/6 of our players played well and scored in double digits.

    So no, I donít think he would be asked to be the #1option. He will definitely be asked to be one of the leaders and I could definitely see him getting closing shots but having to be the number 1 option he wouldnít be for this young team to be successful. He would fit nicely with this young team but so would other players like Klay etc
    im a Ingram fan but if the Lakers are maxing out PG thy are giving him the keys unless another star comes. But none of this really matters bcuz didnt the Lakers even concede to this FA class?

    I won't get into a Butler vs. George debate but acting like one severely outclasses the other and is in a different tier is downright hilarious (in a sad kind of way).
    wild. i feel like PG and Butler are really similar 2 way great players. Like i couldnt argue with anyone for ranking one ahead of the other.

    PG is a great catch and shoot guy. But he doesn't hold the value he used to. Nor is he a legit top 15 player. However, please keep in mind, I think 90% of the league is overpaid, and 10% is way underpaid. Arbitrary numbers, but you get my point.

    If PG is considered an elite player, my god, what is Butler?

    I've only seen a handful of OKC games this season. He still looks like a lock down defender to me. Maybe I'm missing something. Sample size being one.

    He can defend so can okc in general.

    Report: Paul George committed to re-signing with Thunder

    He can't beat the Warriors this and next year; so he will go for the $ at OKC.

    The one thing I will say is butler is continually overlooked in rankings and advanced metrics LOVE him over PG, in fact they love him in general. Take it for whatever you find itís worth but he usually grades out super high, like A top 3-5 guy in advanced stuff.

    Butler is far superior to PG. I wasn't expecting as good a player as Butler is when we got him. PG's injury may have taken more than I thought it did away. it's funny too, if you combined what each is good at, you would have a super player. The only thing stopping Butler from being a top 2-3 player is shooting. And that is PG's major strength.

    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.

    exactly. You explain to an uneducated young man that he won't get half the salary of a lesser player, because of "blah blah blah" (hint, he tuned you out and his boys have told him to fire you).

    if PG is such an amazing defender, why has their defense fallen off a cliff since Roberson went down? Face it, George is no longer an elite, stick him on the other teams best wing, type defender. He is still very smart, long, and is a good defender, but he clearly isn't what he was in Indy, though that defense in itself got individuals overrated.
