varsity after the season started. During his junior year , he was the
only non-senior on the varsity team starting lineup. Recruiters began
noticing George during the summer of 2007, while he competed in AAU
tournaments. Sensing George's potential, his coach handed him a
leading role his senior season. That year, George led Knight to the

positive experience attending Teiosha's Midnight Madness event at
Pepperdine University , George committed to Pepperdine on August 9,

Pre-draft And Rookie Season
On March 31, 2010, George announced that he would forgo his final two
seasons of college eligibility at Fresno State and enter the 2010 NBA
draft . He made his first appearance on a 2010 mock draft on Draft
Express a month into his sophomore season. By May 2010, mock drafts
such as Draft Express, ESPN.com, and The Hoops Report predicted that
George would be selected 12th overall by the
Memphis Grizzlies . Two
days before the draft, Marc J. Spears from
Yahoo! Sports wrote an
article about an anonymous Eastern Conference scout stating that "in
Paul George will be the best player to come out of this
draft". Hoping to draft
Derrick Favors , the Pacers had discussed a
draft trade with the Nets that would have sent
Danny Granger and the
10th pick to the Nets for
Devin Harris ,
Yi Jianlian and the 3rd
overall pick, but the deal fell through. George was invited to sit in
the green room during the draft and was selected tenth overall by the
Indiana Pacers . He became the highest
NBA draft pick in Fresno State
history. On July 1, 2010, he signed his rookie contract with the
Pacers; a two-year guaranteed deal worth $3.9 million, with team
options for a third and fourth year.
On October 27, George made his NBA debut against the San Antonio
Spurs , playing 23 minutes and scoring 4 points on 1–5 shooting. In
a game against the
Washington Wizards , he knocked down five
three-pointers and finished with a then-career-high 23 points. George
averaged 7.8 points, 3.7 rebounds, 1.1 assists on 45% shooting in his
first season, starting 19 of his 61 games. He also showed his
defensive skills, leading the team in steals-per-minute. For the 2011
Playoffs , George was one of only two rookies from the 2010 NBA Draft
to be in the starting lineup for his team, the other being Landry
Fields for the New York Knicks . In the playoffs, the Pacers lost in
five games to the Chicago Bulls , led by
Derrick Rose . Upon
completion of his inaugural season, George was named to the 2011 NBA
All-Rookie Second Team .
On February 3, 2012, George recorded 30 points, 7 three-pointers
made, 9 rebounds, 5 assists, 5 steals, and 1 blocked shot in a win
against the Dallas Mavericks. George was selected to compete in the
Slam Dunk Contest and
Rising Stars Challenge during the 2012 NBA
All-Star Weekend . In the Slam Dunk Contest, George completed a 360
windmill dunk in the dark and dunked over teammates
Dahntay Jones and
Roy Hibbert . However, he lost the contest to
Jeremy Evans . He
finished the 2011–12 lockout-shortened season with averages of 12.1
points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists on 44% shooting, George started
all 66 games for the Pacers in the season. After beating the Orlando
Magic , who were without
Dwight Howard , in five games in the first
round, the Pacers lost to the eventual NBA champion Miami Heat 4–2
in the Eastern Conference Semifinals, with George making just 19 of 52
During his first two seasons in the NBA, George played mostly the
shooting guard position. However, with
Danny Granger missing nearly
the entire season due to knee and calf injuries, George began playing
the small forward position and became the go-to offensive option for
the Pacers in his third season. On November 21, 2012, George made nine
three-pointers en route to a career-high 37 points in a victory
against the New Orleans Hornets . The nine 3-pointers broke the
franchise record for most 3-pointers made in a single game, surpassing
Hall of Famer
Reggie Miller . George was named the NBA's Player of
the Week for the first time in his career in December, winning three
straight games against Cleveland, Philadelphia, and Detroit. He
recorded his first career triple-double in a victory over the
Charlotte Bobcats on February 13, 2013, finishing with 23 points, 12
rebounds, 12 assists and 2 steals. That same season, George was
selected to play in the 2013
NBA All-Star Game in Houston for the
first All-Star selection of his career. He recorded 17 points, 3
rebounds and 4 assists on 7-of-13 shooting in 20 minutes for the East,
but they lost to the West 143–138. George averaged career highs of
17.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 4.1 assists, and was the only player in
the league with at least 140 steals and 50 blocks. At the conclusion
of the regular season, he was named the
NBA Most Improved Player .
In Game 1 of the Pacers'
2013 NBA Playoffs first-round series versus
Atlanta Hawks , George recorded his first career playoff
triple-double, tallying 23 points, 11 rebounds and 12 assists in a
107–90 win. It was the first postseason triple-double by a Pacers
player since Mark Jackson had one in the 1998 playoffs . On May 13,
2013, George was named to the NBA All-Defensive Second Team. George
led the Pacers with 18 points, 14 rebounds and 7 assists in Game 4 of
the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Knicks on May 14, 2013
in a 93-82 victory. In Game 1 of the 2013 Eastern Conference Finals
against the Miami Heat , George made a three-point field goal at the
end of the fourth quarter to tie the game and force an overtime
period. During overtime,
Dwyane Wade fouled George with 2.2 seconds
remaining. Despite George making all 3 free-throws and putting his
team up 102-101, the Pacers ultimately lost as
LeBron James drove in
for a buzzer beater lay-up. To cap off a great 2012–13 campaign,
George was named to the
All-NBA Third Team .
On September 25, 2013, the
Indiana Pacers extended George's contract,
electing him to be their designated player . The extension, which
will start at the end of his rookie contract in 2014, is a "5/30 "
designated player extension (5 years and 30% of the salary cap ),
subject to passing the "Derrick Rose" test . George had to be elected
to one further
All-NBA team (at any level) or be the MVP during the
2013–14 season to qualify for the 30% extension. If he met either of
these criteria, the 30% extension is estimated to be worth around $90
million over the 5-year deal. If he had failed to meet the criteria,
he would be contracted at 25% of the salary cap.
The Pacers started the 2013–14 season 9–0 for the first time in
franchise history. George finished with 31 points, 10 rebounds, 4
assists, and 4 steals in a 99–91 victory over the Detroit Pistons .
He then posted 23 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists during a 91-84 win
Toronto Raptors on November 8. The following day he scored
24 points and added 6 rebounds in a 96-91 victory over the Brooklyn
Nets . For his efforts, he was named Eastern Conference Player of the
Week. With nine wins to start the season, Indiana became the first
NBA team to start the season 9-0 since the
Dallas Mavericks in the
2002–03 season . The Pacers undefeated streak ended at 9–0
against the Bulls on November 16. On December 2, 2013, he scored a
career high 43 points, along with 3 rebounds and 3 assists, in a
102-106 loss to the Portland Trail Blazers. The following day, George
was named Eastern Conference Player of the Month, the first time in
his career, for the month of November while leading the Pacers to a
15-1 record. The Pacers finished the regular season with an
incredible 56-26 record. In the 2014 playoffs , the Pacers eliminated
Atlanta Hawks and the
Washington Wizards in the first two rounds.
In game 4 against the Wizards, George scored a playoff career-high 39
points. The Pacers were eliminated in the Eastern Conference Finals
against the Miami Heat for the third straight year. For his efforts,
George was named to the All-NBA third team, qualifying him for the
full 30% extension, and All-Defensive First Team.
Players on the USA
Basketball Men’s National Team react after
Paul George suffered a serious leg injury during the
fourth quarter of an intra-squad scrimmage at the Thomas and Mack
Center in Las Vegas on August 1, 2014.
During the 2014 offseason, George was named to the training camp
roster for the US national team that would represent the country at
the 2014 FIBA
Basketball World Cup in Spain. He had been considered a
virtual lock to make the roster. However, on August 1, George landed
awkwardly at the base of a basket stanchion after fouling James Harden
during a Las Vegas scrimmage, and suffered a compound fracture of both
bones in his lower right leg. After George was carted off the court,
Mike Krzyzewski addressed the arena stating the game would
not continue out of respect to George and his family. George quickly
went into surgery for the fracture, with a pin being inserted in the
leg. While no official prognosis was initially given, he was
considered likely to miss the entire 2014–15 season. George, who
had said he wanted to play at some time during the season, was cleared
to put weight on the leg in late September, and was shooting jumpers
in practice in late October. He participated in his first full
practice of the season on February 26, three days earlier than
expected, and was ruled a possibility to play within a week on March
20. On April 5, George made his return to the Pacers line-up for the
first time since sustaining his leg injury with Team USA. He scored 13
points in 15 minutes and made two key three-pointers early in the
fourth quarter, helping the Pacers defeat the Miami Heat 112–89. He

8.8 points and 3.7 rebounds per game.

Toronto Raptors on

following the game, he was fined $10,000. On November 6, he scored 36

quarter, to lead the Pacers to a 97–84 win over the Orlando Magic.

part of a franchise-record 19 by the Pacers in a 123–106 victory
over the Washington Wizards. On December 3, he was named the Eastern
Conference Player of the Month for games played in October and
November. George led the Eastern Conference and ranked fourth in the
NBA in scoring (27.2 ppg), helping the Pacers win 11 of 13 games after
an 0–3 start. Two days later, he scored a career-high 48 points in
a 122–119 overtime loss to the Utah Jazz. George competed for the
Eastern Conference in the 2016
NBA All-Star Game in
Toronto , where he
started and was the game's leading scorer with 41 points, finishing
one point shy of the All-Star game record set by
Wilt Chamberlain (42)
in 1962 . On March 19, he had a 45-point game in a 115–111 loss to
the Oklahoma City Thunder. George helped the Pacers return to the
playoffs in 2016, finishing as the seventh seed in the Eastern
Conference with a 45–37 record.

George in 2013
Though NBA.com lists George's height as 6 ft 9 in (2.06 m), a
December 15, 2011 report from
The Indianapolis Star
The Indianapolis Star said that George
was 6 ft 10 in (2.08 m). He entered the league as a shooting guard
but was later moved to the small forward position, with the emergence
of Pacers shooting guard
Lance Stephenson . Stephenson's improvement
as a facilitator and distributor in the backcourt allowed George to
play off the ball more often during games. Early in his career, he
was unable to create shots for himself and lacked a great deal of ball
handle, something he worked on with trainer Jerry Powell during the
2012 off-season. With All-Star swingman
Danny Granger injured during
the 2012–13 season , George took on a larger offensive
responsibility, which resulted in the
NBA Most Improved Player Award
George has established himself as one of the best perimeter defenders
in the NBA. In addition to his athleticism, he has developed a
reputation as a high-flyer by participating in the 2012 and 2014 Slam
Dunk Contest . Following the Pacers' win over the
Denver Nuggets on
February 10, 2014, Nuggets head coach
Brian Shaw , called George "the
best two-way player in the game". George's rapid improvement led
Pablo S. Torre of
ESPN to dub him the NBA's most anomalous superstar,
while stating: "Has anyone in the NBA ever become better, faster than
In August 2014, it was announced George had changed his uniform
number from 24 to 13, giving him the more marketable moniker of PG-13.
He then donated all of his old jerseys to his high school in Palmdale,
