2011-2012 Season Review:   Paul George had a good second year that resulted with an invite to the Slam Dunk Contest and participating in the Rookies Sophomores All Star Game.  He had a couple of stand out performances like going for a record tying three pointers made in a game against Dallas.  Then taking over in a game against Detroit at the end of the season.  He seemed to be a bit lost after the All-Star break, and wasn’t much of an offensive focus after that.

2012-2013 Season Preview:  The biggest area where Paul George can improve is being consistent.  There were games he was a good part of the offense and working to get his shot. But other games, he wouldn’t seem to be there at all. I would love for George to be right around the 10-15 points a game.  If he can get that every night, this would help out the offense a lot.  He can also get better on the defensive side.  With his length guarding smaller guards should be a strength of his.  Get a hand in their face as their shooting.  Stay in front of the man as they’re looking to drive.  Those are areas to improve in.  With this being his third year in the league, I look for Paul George to break out and show he was worth the draft pick three years ago.
