 NBA Role: two-way star • Top DOG

This rebranded version of Paul George aka PG-13 is a total hit – over the past year, MVP-caliber play has pushed George to NBA superstar status*, no ifs, ands or buts about it; after suffering a gruesome injury during the Summer of 2014 (w/ Team USA), George has come full circle (2016 Olympic Gold Medalist), is taking no prisoners in his pursuit to become the league’s best two-way player; former/current defensive star who’s made leaps and bounds as a creator & shot maker – won’t hesitate to let it fly in a defender’s face, has a super easy shot release, freezes defenders w/ quick, paralyzing crossovers, & hangs and hits difficult looks at the basket – clutch performer on offense; still working on shot selection, adjusting to being Indiana’s undisputed franchise player; reminiscent of a two-way, remixed version of Tracy McGrady, PG’s ascension has vaulted him near DIFFERENT BREED territory

*He graced the cover of NBA 2K17 in an era where 2-Time MVP Stephen Curry (GS) hasn’t had a solo cover – George actually plays 2K tho, so it might have (definitely) played a part
