Love how people always reduce a comparison between players to one thing. It's either rings or playoff success. It's like people forget that basketball is played with a team of 5. It doesn't take long to see that George didn't have a great regular season, or even playoffs until this round. But whatever these discuss never get anywhere anyway.

Hes already better than T-Mac ever was, no one gave a shit about T-Mac so you dont see threads like this. Same reason why people dont talk about overrated craps like Marbury and Arenas.

T-Mac was right there with Kobe.

Watch their head-to-head match-ups 2000-2003 and you'll see almost mirror images dueling it out.

You are on crack, wake me up when he can single handedly carry a team averaging 32/6/5 on 45%.

T-Mac has to have the worst luck ever among NBA superstars.

Twice Paul George's scoring on more efficiency


"B-b-b-b-but defense!"


It's funny how people cite Melo's inefficiency in regards to Paul George, who is less efficient and shoots a much lower volume of shots
Maybe if LeBron keeps leaving him wide open, he'll have a good series and he'll be the GOAT on ISH!

Prime Tmac is someone Prime Kobe can't even touch. Too bad Tmac's prime didn't last that long.

Paul George isn't even better than Dominique Wilkins. He's not even the best player on his team.

George has more heart than Mcgrady, but that's about it.

maybe because George is playing for a quality team, while TMac played with much less talent. even in Houston, TMac only had what, Yao Ming, old Dikembe Mutombo? George is not Orlando McGrady, but I can tell he's more than willing to share the limelight with his teammates.

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