    Default George Making Name For Self as Draft Nears

    Will he get away from the Raptors? Seems more and more like he might not be available at #13. BC may have to trade up to get him. I am not sure he will if has to. We shall see.

    George making name for self as draft nears

    By Marc J. Spears, Yahoo! Sports 5 hours, 32 minutes ago

    The scout wasn’t backing down. In five years, he said, the best player from the 2010 NBA draft won’t be John Wall.

    Evan Turner?

    Nope.

    DeMarcus Cousins?

    Nope.

    Derrick Favors?

    Nope.

    “In five years,” the Eastern Conference scout said, “Paul George will be the best player to come out of this draft.

    “Trust me.”

    Paul George?

    Unless you’re a well-studied draftnik or hail from Fresno, Calif., chances are you haven’t heard too much about George – if you’ve heard of him at all. That’s OK with George. He’s about to go from relatively anonymous to relatively rich on Thursday, when he’s projected as a possible lottery pick in the draft.

    And if you listen to the 20-year-old George – who clearly isn’t lacking for confidence – his climb toward stardom won’t end there.

    “I feel like I have all the intangibles, all the tools to be one of the best players not only in this draft, but to play in this game,” George said. “It’s something I’m really taking to heart. My dream is to not only get drafted – that’s a goal of mine – but my dream is to someday be a legend at this game. I want to work to be that.”

    Before George elevates himself to legend, he’ll need to introduce himself to NBA fans.

    We have to hope that Hayward and Babbitt go Top 10. Clippers, Utah and Pacers are the most likely teams to grab him Top 10.

    All you need is one team reaching in any draft, and then all of a sudden, the next team is surprised and grabs the player they thought was gone for sure. From there, it snowballs.

    Everybody pray for Hayward and Babbitt Top 10.

    I don't think Memphis picks him at #12 after he dissed them. Will N'Orleans grab Xavier at #11?

    It is gonna be a lot of fun. I cannot wait!

    George, I think, is going to be a very good player. And he rebounds!

    I could see him developing into an all-star, he has a lot of the necessary skills and traits and if he's there at 13 that's definitely a steal. If we were going to trade up to get someone though, I want Cousins or Aminu, they are the two guys outside the top three I see as can't miss.

    I think Cousins will become another

    I don't think Memphis takes George, because I think New Orleans or the Clippers will take him first. That's very unfortunate for the Raptors

    Ya, but what about all those back problems that George has been trying to hide [start rumour now]? That will really affect his play.
