Indiana Pacers star Paul George has revealed his desire to be personally tutored by LeBron James this summer, as he looks to improve his own game.
As of yet it’s unclear whether or not it’s all some sort of elaborate ploy, but it seems as though the upcoming star wants to learn from the reigning NBA king whilst he’s still in his prime. And make no mistake; LeBron James is most definitely in his prime.
Having scored a career-high 61 points against the Charlotte Bobcats on Monday, James is providing plenty of competition for Kevin Durant, who some are tipping to become the MVP this year.
But George has only one name in mind when it comes to who he would look to learn from. And it isn’t Durant.
“It would be great to be able to pick his brain, pick his mind and just talk about the game because I think he’s a player that can help me get to the next level and continue to keep going to the next level. I wish some day we have that relationship where he is someone I can talk to— not during the season because I’m too competitive during the season —but maybe in the summertime,” George is reported to have said.
It remains to be seen whether or not James will accept the role of master, and perhaps mould George into a forward of his own image. Fans of the Pacers will be praying he does.
