Indiana Pacers Rumors
George is the last survivor from the roster that reached consecutive Eastern Conference finals a few years ago. With new teammates and a new playing style, George acknowledged Thursday that he has to be the leader for the Pacers to succeed and contend next season. “I think I’m still young,” George said before his practice with the U.S. men’s Olympic team. “I can carry a team, I feel.”
“I’m glad he’s not letting me waste years,” he said of Bird. “I think Larry and (the rest of the front office) have expressed how bad they want to get back to (the Eastern Conference finals) by these moves this offseason. I’m looking forward to getting us back there. He’s putting talent around me to help me get to what we all want to get accomplish, and that’s a championship.”
