PG isn't 2nd best player. Top 10 and improving though. If he keeps on course won't be long.

Love PG.... 2-way player, pretty much injury free, got the height, length and leaping ability. Can go in or shoot outside. Still very young, but has a chance to be in the top 5 in the next year or two.

The fact that OP called him the second best player in the league has made him lose all credibility. George is an up and coming talent but is he even top 10 based on last year? In the future he could become a top 5 player.

You know nothing about basketball OP you are calling him #2 based on his playoff series against LeBron. Does that mean Kawhi Leonard is top 5 OP? Smh.

The Pacers have to be careful with the cap to avoid luxury tax. He's guaranteed to get a max deal, but Indiana can afford to wait. They have Granger coming off the books next year and need to sign PG24 and Lance Stephenson.

Most Improved, third team All-NBA and second team All-Defense...at the ripe old age of 22 years old! I'd go ahead and give him the top 10 nod.

I said he's arguably the second best player behind Bron. I didnt say there was a definitive 2nd best behind BRon. If you don't have PG in at least your top 10 you lost all credibility.

Does it count as arguably if you're the only person on the planet that would argue it?

everyone has been going nuts about Paul George for over a year now.

no one disagrees that he is a good young player with a lot of potential.

you are just overrating him for the moment. no one actually thinks he is a top 5 player, and a strong case could be made to put him outside the top 10.

instead, he is in line with a handful of guys from the past few draft classes who show huge potential and are ready to jump into the top 10 once guys like wade and kobe start winding down IF they make their own respective leaps.

i would put Paul George neck and neck with John Wall - both play stacked positions and some nights look like stars because their levels of physical ability are both huge. but no one would put paul george with Lebron or Durant right now, just like no one would put Wall with Chris Paul or Westbrook or Tony Parker yet.

I'm a Pacer fan and ranking him as the 2nd best player on the planet currently is just silly. Does he have potential to be a top 3 player in the league? Most definitely.

He still has a couple of things to develop on the offensive end a bit more, and continue growing the killer instinct that he showed at times during the playoffs.

He is around the top 10 right now in my eyes. There aren't many in the league that can do what he does on both ends of the floor.

One thing is for sure, you can't name many players you'd rather have over PG24 to START your franchise and build for the future. With his age and talent level, he will be one of the faces of the league in just a few years.

Potential wise he has an amazing ceiling. Based on last season and playoffs he is borderline top 10. Guys like Lebron, Durant, Kobe, Howard, CP3, Westbrook, Rose and Wade I feel are for sure top 10. People like George, Curry, Harden, Melo, Irving, Gasol, Williams, Parker and Duncan are all right on the edge. If this was a prediction for 3 years from now I would say he is defensively top 10.

Sorry if I worded my response poorly. I meant the OP loses his credibility.

Please make the argument and see how many non homer fans agree with you...I don't see the argument at all. I would love to clear the reasons you think he is better then Durant....

The above being said the potential for George is amazing. I think he can become a top 3-5 guy in the NBA, just not based on what he has done.

You don't think any list is complete without George in the top 10? I feel like same argument can be made for the guys below.
Lebron
Durant
Paul
Bryant
Wade
Westbrook
Rose
Irving
Howard
Harden
Duncan
Parker
Curry
Carmelo
Williams
Gasol


To me George is right around the tenth spot.... I agree he can be in the top 10 or can be just outside. Saying any list without him in the top ten isn't legit seems far fetched.

I put value in a players individual on ball defense and his team defense. PG is is better than everyone on that list on defense besides Bron. PG is guarding the best player every night and still averages 20 a night.
