Default Why isn't Paul George > Tracy Mcgrady yet according to some posters?

Paul George led a team to the eastern conference finals and playing well vs the Miami Heat which is suppossedly the most stacked team in recent history.

Vs

Tmac who never led his team past first round. Only had the 13 points in 35 seconds miracle.

Of course Tmac was undisputedly the much better scorer but George is the defensive version of Tmac with actual playoff success!

As far as a player goes, T-mac was on the level of prime Wade.

Paul George is where exactly again?

Paul George has become the most overrated player in the history of ISH.

And that's not an easy thing to do.

09 and 10 Wade had as much support as Tmac did while in Orlando. Similar results.

what's more impressive/harder to do beating the Atlanta Hawks and New York Knicks while averaginG 17 ppg for the season with a great supporting cast.. Or average 32 ppg for the season with a mediocre supporting cast?

If you replaced PG with prime T-Mac the second round would've been Atlanta/Knicks.

I think people put more value in McGrady cause he was such a smooth scorer. I's too early to judge but IMO George has potential to get better. Whether he becomes better than T-MAC remains to be seen.

People tend to forget George shot 41% this year

Yeah, he's already been out of the 1st round and he doesn't have a gypsy curse on him.

Prime T-Mac is one of the best players i've ever seen. Nobody would put Paul George on that type of level yet.
