Yes it is. PG has regressed and this a team sport. You can't build around a player that will cause off the field issues and isn't a clear superstar.

the Granger/Turner trade was the point in time where this team fell apart. Not saying either is the actual reason, but their offense went to pure crap, and Hibbert has reverted back to his play from early last season, when people were claiming it was a joke he was given the max.

I'm not he started the season strong and regressed. Or are you ignoring the last couple months of the season. In may the Pacers had one of the worst records and when they met run n gun teams like my Suns they tore them a new one. If you can't respect your teammates you are not going anywhere. That's what differentiates the Kobe's, LeBrons, Duncans of the game from the wanna be superstars. They understand it's a team sport which goes beyond the court.

Your seriously brushing off Kobe-Shaq feud and pretending that wasn't a HUGE locker room issue? Shaq and Kobe both destroyed what should have been a dynasty to match the Bulls. Both of them aggravated the fight and caused the teams collapse. Neither Shaq nor Kobe could put their pride to the side to try and mend their relationship in order to win the way your implying he would. No way that happens if you replace Kobe with your other examples of Lebron or Duncan. Not to mention just a year ago his feud with Howard pushed Howard out. Kobe's an amazing player but he's never been a great locker room guy.

You seriously have the reading comprehension of a 1st grader? If you re-read my post you can clearly see where I acknowledge it. When they let their egos get in the way they lost to the Pistons and the Lakers sucked after that until he matured like the leader he is today and like the leader that won 2 championships in 09 and 10. And Howard pushed himself out by being a diva. He wanted to be in LA and when he got there the spotlight was too much for him. He will NEVER be a #1 option on a championship team and ge needs to get that. He's not as dominant as Shaq was nor does he have the footwork to work with his back to the basket. You have to be a major Kobe hater to not give the man credit. When it came to them winning championships, specially in the late 00's, he knew he had to put his ego aside and play with whomever it was as a team.

This might be your best post ever, I completely agree. How in the world can you do that to a teammate/friend? I bet many people on here have been in a similar situation and turned it down immediately, even though we aren't all superstar millionaires getting attractive women throwing themselves at us daily.

I completely agree as well. I hope this story is B.S too. I'm not gonna lie, I hate the Pacers from a rivalry standpoint, but I was always intrigued by this team. If they were all firing on all cylinders, I'd watch as many Pacers games as possible. They were fun to watch. Paul George is not a superstar, and Hibbert may be the Achilles heel of the team; he's not that good. Gortat and Nene are better than Hibbert by leaps and bounds, or any Pacers big (right now), for that matter. It's a shame because before the meltdown they looked unstoppable. But right now they are disabling their own talent for some reason.

Egos and hoes.

As a player you should be able to get tons of women, why choose someone that's your boy's wife? And George doesn't have enough problems with the baby mamma drama yet.

Your all ridiculous and blinded but what your watching right now, as well as judging him based off of the pacers performance as a whole. There is NOT 10 players in this league better than that man is at the game of basketball itself. Unbelievable how so many forget so soon. No one is saying he is the MVP. No one is saying he's the best small forward or shooting guard ( even though he is better than harden IMO). But my goodness. Do you not watch him enough? Do you not see the effort he puts in of defense and is consistently one of the best perimeter defenders in the nba. He can also score from just about anywhere. His numbers are still highly productive, but his team isn't winning, and when they are it's not convincingly. But that does not take away from his individual talent as a basketball player.

And at 26 Kobe had 3 rings. How many does PG have? All he has to show this year is a 7 game series with the Horford-less hawks :laugh:. On top of that had it not been for Hibbert finding his game they would be down 0-2 to Was. And I hate Kobe with a passion so I don't know how I'm a homer.

Woah, hold up a sec. George is a great player on the verge of top 10 but I don't think it is ridiculous to keep him outside. This is the first year he has even been near that discussion so I am not sure what you mean by "how so many forget so soon"?

Him vs. Harden is a good debate, I think I would agree with you that this season he could be considered the better player. Harden's completely inept defense compared to PG being amazing on that edge will give him the edge for me (since Harden is only a little better on offense, so the defensive gap is much much larger).

We do still have Lebron, Durant, Chris Paul as definitely better. Then we have a large group that I think people could argue as better with the first few being basically locks (Curry, Parker, Griffin, Love, Melo, Aldridge, Noah, Westbrook, Harden, Dwight and maybe one or two I forget off the top of my head). I don't think it is crazy to say PG isn't in the top 10 yet.

:facepalm: you seem to have completely lost track of what this discussion is about so let me remind you. I was refuting 2 of your points

1.) that it's even debatable whether they should build around PG or Hibbert the way things have been going when ones been playing like an all-star all season and the others been playing like a d-leaguer for months. One good game doesn't change that.

2.) That you can't build around bad locker room guys citing Kobe an example of how a true superstar acts. When both Kobe and Shaq(another difficult guy who is obviously a superstar) has been a locker room issue in the past and by extension is an example of someone who has been difficult to work with but CAN be built around when you were using him as an example of the opposite.

Obviously Kobe was much more accomplished and talented when his **** came to a head then George is now the point is that you claimed Kobe has never been a locker room problem and that's just not true. Both him and Shaq are top 10 players all-time and were both very difficult to work with causing alot of drama.

HeatBBall
05-08-2014, 03:50 PM
I'm not arguing that PG isn't a very good player, but he's not top 10 and he's not a SUPER-star. Just a star.

As far as building around him vs Hibbert, for sure I'd go with PG over Hibbert. Hibbert is overrated and got a fat contract cuz how he plays the Heat.

05-08-2014, 05:25 PM
Why would someone need to do both better than George to be a better player than him? Klay Thompson is a much better shooter and defender then Harden but ones a superstar and the others a role-player.

Harden is a liability defensively AND a ball stopper. He doesn't even count. Clay is a better shooter but not a great defender.

My point is when you can do everything, in my little book that makes you a superstar. The list of players that are all NBA and all defense is really short....
