    Not sure if this deserved a new thread or not.

    Tracy McGrady says that OKC will be squandering Paul George's talent if they don't make the playoffs.... or if they get eliminated in the first round!

    This is actually humorous to me. Does that mean that all of T-Mac's career was squandering his own talent? I don't think anyone would say that Paul George had more talent than T-Mac

    So another player is underachieving next to Russell Westbrook?

    Who woulda thunk it???

    At least Tmac played in the NBA unlike Kellerman or Stephen A

    "He played in the NBA"

    The closest thing to a compliment Tinman will ever say about Tmac

    *westbrook squandering paul goerge's talent.

    paul goerge's usage is the lowest since 2012-13. westbrook's usage is the 3rd highest of his career.

    some games they just have paul george in the corner like he's trevor ariza.

    they never tried to make it a 1a 1b scenario for paul george. just another role player around westbrook so he can statpad for triple doubles.

    Paul George is really regretting his decision, each interview I have seen in wins or losses he looks sad. I really believe Chris Paul, James Harden, Mike DAntoni can make Paul George feel more welcomed, by being included more in the offense.

    Paul George would add a whole new dimension to the Rockets offense. Great defense, can create his own shot. Agreed that he just looks defeated with every interview. His shot isn't broken - he hardly gets the ball. Hard to get a rhythm going when you don't get the ball. Wish he would come to the Rockets but that's wishful thinking at this point.

    Dear lord... The Thunder are .5 game back from the 4 seed. Anyone that thought they would be higher vastly overrated Carmelo Anthony.

    Yeah, he had to cut his shots from 18 a game, to 17 a game, and his TS% is actually the second highest it has ever been in his NBA Career.

    Second most efficient shooting season of his career. Check.

    Taking 1 less shot a game. Check.

    Playing next to Carmelo Anthony and Corey Brewer in the starting lineup. Check.

    Thunder bench play? :D

    Good Lord the Thunder are 1 game back from not making the playoffs! Anyone that that they were one game from missing the playoffs is a liar.

    The Thunder have been a massive disappointment. A lot of “experts” thought the Thunder would be better than the Rockets and the #2 seed. Instead the Rockets will finish with nearly 20 more wins! In the words of James Comey; LORDY!

    Exactly. The West is a bloodbath, and the true fools were the ones who thought they would be a 2 seed, LOL. They are playing about as expected, imo. 3-10 seed, give or take. A disappointment to retards, usually Melo blowers.

    George will continue to squander his talents if he bolts for LA next year, with or without LeBron in a Lakers uniform.

    how does t-mac saying OKC would be squandering PG's talent mean that t-mac squandered his own talent? if you want to apply what he said about PG to him then it would be him saying the teams he played for squandered his talent.

    It was not his decision. He was traded to OKC.

    Come here George, you are welcome. He will get his 3pt shot and adds another defensive dimension. I will give it a 1% chance though.
