and scored less points-per-shot than DeMar did. He also had 3 TO per game. He's not a max guy, he has potential to be but he has his issues and at 23yrs old it's difficult to say how this will turn out in 3-4yrs.
Is he worth 18-20mil/yr.....no, is Rudy Gay worth 18-20mil.....no.
jeff never said Rudy>George. he just dropped stats to prove that Rudy was better statistically at the SAME AGE...
so jeff is right on the ball with his point.
but in terms of ceiling...i feel george might get to greater heights.
