Eye on Basketball Podcast: Paul George, Superstar
Zach Harper and Ethan Sherwood Strauss discuss the emergence of Paul George, the lack of Spurs' attention, and LeBron vs. Michael Jordan.
I'm joined by Ethan Sherwood Strauss of Warriorsworld.net to discuss the emergence of Paul George as our new NBA superstar. Is the Indiana Pacers' small forward truly showing he's a star in this league or has he just caught everybody's attention on specific cool plays while we're mining for drama in the playoffs? Has George's play before this been star quality or are we ignoring the earlier struggles in the playoffs?
The San Antonio Spurs are on the verge of sweeping the Western Conference finals against the Memphis Grizzlies and nobody seems to care. Why is that? Is the series that bad? Do the overtime wins in Game 2 and Game 3 show it's closer than the 3-0 hole the Grizzlies are in or do we simply needs wins from both sides for it to be a good series? Tim Duncan and the Spurs don't get the attention their fans and some media members feel they deserve, but is that on everybody viewing or is it on the Spurs' organization for shielding our eyes from them?
We discuss all of this, plus the consistent argument of LeBron James vs. Michael Jordan, whether we know anything, and the movie 8 Mile.
