According to Indiana Pacers star swingman Paul George, he used some of Kobe Bryant’s tricks of the trade to elevate his game to a new level this season. (The Cali native has never hidden his reverence of the Black Mamba.) Per 1070 the Fan in Indianapolis (via SRI): “On his growth as a player: ‘I switched it all up, just my whole preparation. I come in early, I lift before every game and I get about 300 or 400 shots up prior to the game as well. All of that really came from Kobe Bryant. With him being around Brian Shaw and Brian Shaw being around us and me having a relationship with Brian Shaw and the conversations we have had, that’s how Kobe prepares and gets ready for games. Me, idolizing Kobe growing up in L.A, that’s really how I changed my whole season around.’”

Okay, lemme help you out here PG;
You're from around here, you obviously love the Lakers and Kobe. The team you're with now is good, second in the east! That's great, but lets be real, the brand of ball you play is boring as hell. Nobody is showing up to your games, there are more fans from opposing teams than home fans. How'd you like to trade in Roy Hibbert for Dwight Howard? NASCAR for beaches and Hollywood celebrities at every game? Sold out arenas in every city. You can even bring your assistant coach with you! C'mon Paul, you know you wanna wear that purple and gold.

You don't think D12 has serious work ethic? Um....
 

I've always liked Steve Blake.

I wish Kobe had Dwights height and athleticism. Then he could grab 15 boards a night.

This dude could be a real stud, 6'7-6'8 with crazy athleticism and ball handling skills not to mention he was in the three point contest. You love to see young studs put in the work so they can pull out every hint of potential. He's one of the better perimeter defenders in the league as well.... This dude is my second choice after the obvious one in 2014
