During the playoffs this season ahead of Game 4 against the Cleveland Cavaliers, George took his game to a new level.
He has laid the foundations through the last two months of the 2017 season, and has built on a growing playoff resume, and now the only thing stopping Paul George from dominating the league as he moves into his prime years is himself.
The Pacers president and the group bidding to the host the game and all-star weekend festivities will deliver their proposal Monday at National Basketball Association headquarters in NY. Here's how it went down. "If we want to be serious, that's the team we've got to look at and figure out how can we match up against them".
If George does not receive All-NBA honors for his 2016-17 campaign, it goes without saying that the odds of him remaining in IN are slim-to-none.
"I just know when I first got here, they said they wanted me here, not just for a year".
"I just feel like I can help out in a lot of different ways", Williams said.
Yet, looking at his comments and the opportunities he has elsewhere, it shouldn't be a hard decision for George to make. The latter option, of course, would force the franchise's hand and make George one of the hottest commodities on the summer trade market.
George also took his efficiency to a new level this season, shooting a career high field goal percentage, eFG per cent, FT per cent, TS per cent and posting the second-best mark of his career in PER and three-point percentage. He's now the Los Angeles Lakers beat writer for Sports Out West. "If I was driving around my neighbourhood I don't think I'd have had any interest in it".
GEORGE: [looks up Beverly Hills mansions on Zillow] Cool. "You all know me, born and raised, tattoos on my arm".
Trump, Erdogan to meet in May: Turkey FM
Reminded that "it was a win with slimmest of margin 51.4 percent to 48.6" in the referendum, Erdogan said a win was a win. Some voters had been unable to cast their ballots in private, he also said.
GEORGE: [texts Chris Paul "Who's your barber in LA?"] Mhmm.
"It's easy to say, hey, we're going to clean house".
GEORGE: [texts Woj "When am I getting traded?"] Yeah. "That is what we are going to try to bring in here".
GEORGE: [texts agent to put together "Thank you for everything, Indy" letter in the Indianapolis Star] Cool.
While the Pacers could keep him, have him opt out, and then re-sign him to a bigger deal, there is nothing keeping George in IN at that point, and they could see him walk to a better situation.
George has likely thought about all of this already even if he won't publicly admit it.
At this point, it might be more realistic to expect Paul George to be wearing a Lakers uniform rather than a Pacers one next season.
GEORGE: [likes every Instagram post of him wearing a Photoshopped Lakers jersey] Thank you.
