Bird: Paul George Among ‘Five Best Young Guys I’ve Been Around’

Sure Larry Bird is biased, but he must have high hopes for the Pacers’ first-year swingman: “Paul George has to learn how to put the ball on the floor and create more scoring opportunities inside the 3-point arc. That said, Bird loves his work ethic, calling him ‘one of the five best young guys I’ve been around in all my years in the game.’”

    This kid is good, contributes on both sides of the court. Love that he’s able to get steals and blocks. He’s pretty much a younger Granger.

    And what about Lance??? Ok don’t answer


    Physically I still think Lance would be a better on court pro. But with that said, he probably wont make it onto the court in the NBA at this rate.
