It is good to see that Hibbert has so much confidence in Paul George, with that being said I need him to settle down a bit.
Four days per week, George ran through the steep Southern California hills, the memory of Game 7 pushing him an extra day, an extra mile. He honed his ball handling and diversified his offensive repertoire.
After shooting 41.9 percent last season, George is up to 46.7 percent this season. After being named the NBA’s Most Improved Player, George has the look of an MVP candidate.
“He’s one of the most complete players in the game,” Vogel said.
Added Hibbert, “Reggie [Miller] is the man in terms of Pacers legacy. I can see [George] surpassing him. He won’t say it, but I will. He’s aspiring to be great.”
The Pacers are definitely a threat to the Heat, but teams are remembered for what they do in the postseason, not the 1st month of the regular season, so we will see.
