He will be the underdog. He will be expected to play his level best and to bring out the unfulfilled potential in his teammates. He is going to be up against it and yet George was looking forward to his anxiety. He wants to feel the discomfort and nervousness of the playoffs, which, as he understands it, is not the goal for most people in the everyday working world. “At the end of the day, people enjoy being comfortable,” George said. “But that’s not what life is about.”
Even if the Pacers aren’t serious about moving George now, they are racing against the clock while trying to sell the star on an imperfect roster. The rumors will keep coming. “Honestly, that was the easiest part (of the season) because that’s something I didn’t have no control over,” George said. “If I got traded, I got traded. If I stayed, I stayed. I didn’t have no control over it. At the end of the day, I’m going to play my heart out for whatever team I was on.”
Storyline: Paul George Trade?
George has sounded dissatisfied throughout the season. Asked about the campaign Wednesday, he called it “probably one of the toughest seasons for me” before admitting he thinks back to the years when the Pacers threatened to win the Eastern Conference. “You always relive the glory days when they’re gone,” George said. “So I’m trying to bring that to this team, and that edge. But it’s taken some time. It’s been a toll.”
