Demar is not far off from George???
Y'all motherfuckers don't watch us play. - Roy Hibbert.
judging by his contract.. is his play that much better than Demars to earn him 50 more mill.. bottom line he is over paid

Another 'potential' contract. And you're crazy Kirby, he's not even close to T-Mac. I don't think he even has the potential to break 24ppg. He's a great player, especially defensively, but anybody outside the top 5 or maybe 10 players shouldn't be making that kind of money. I would have maxed out at 15 per with some incentives; it's too easy to get complacent after a big contract.

You view T-Mac as a scoring machine, fine for a casual viewer. If you knew T-Mac's skill set, you'd understand what I'm talking about.

Clutch, I think it's coming along nicely. It wasn't bad last season and I believe he was working on it this Summer.

This beast 23 year old is bound to improve, and he's already a multi-dimensional all-star going head to head with LeBron.

Agree completely. George is a machine and the only player I would be somewhat hesitant to deal on this low ceiling squad for him would be JV. He's a statistical machine and him and Indy are one of the few threats to the Heat. There's more to the game of basketball than PPG. Is he overpaid - yes but you can say that for many a player in the NBA. He continues to increase his usage well and does well for the most part. Mid-range game and FTAs/game along with maybe FG% needs to be improved but other than that he's a monster.

Alright perhaps he currently isn't worth the 18m annually that he's set to earn, but it's the price you gotta pay. He's already so good and still young, sky's the limit for PG.

So he gets the "Rose" contract (if he makes another all-NBA team). That's the only way he can get over 90 mil.

I thought that the Pacers would get the same discount that OKC got from Westbrook (no Rose rule). This sucks for them.

Yes, he's worth ~9 mil / year more than DeMar. But DeMar isn't worth 9.5 mil / year so that doesn't say much.

In the end, I'm a bit surprised that they ended up giving him the Rose contract, if this is true. But in the big picture, 15 mil or 18 mil, you can live with it. If their choice was 18 mil / year or take a risk that George will sign a short deal / player option this summer and leave in a few years... Then 18 mil / year is the right choice.

either you are overrating one or underrating another, badly

Is he a lebron type instant-finals-appearance player? Not even in future.
He is a top10 SF, and thats bottom end of top10. Right behind Rudy Gay.

Overpaid.

He is talking about in context with Demar, which I can accept.
George is a top 5 wing in the league.

Mehh, he's an 8mil/yr type of player which in the NBA equates to 9.5mil/yr. IMO by NBA standards he's right around what he should be payed when you look around.

LOl, Gay has 64 rank in NBA
He is not top 10 Sf
George is top5 sf.
rudy is overpayed and overrated, he worth like 8mil/year.
george worth like 15mln.But he is 23years old, has super defence, has shoot.
gay hasnt anything, just big salary.

I don't think he's worth 8 mil either. Midlevel. Of course, this goes back to the popular "DeMar finished the season well and he'll be better next year" topic, so we'll see in a month+. It'd be nice if he proved his worth.

The thing is that the Pacers had to other option. With a good reason they want to keep the core, they added LS who is a great player and are planning to unload Danny G. Even though overpaid, still a solid move for the next few years. I wish we were exciting to watch as the Pacers.

George is one of my favourite player in the league but he is not worth max, at least not yet. Its little bit like paying max to Steph Curry..

Wow! SMH

You think he should be making less than Fields and a little more than Gray?

His salary is market driven as they all are but imo he's not really all that over payed. And you're high if you think he's only worth MLE
