Paul George is busy preparing for this weekends All-Star weekend.

And the Indiana Pacers player is confident he is in the right company.

Still only 23, George has been talked about as a potential NBA MVP this season and feels he is deserving of such praise.

In fact the 2010 draftee believes he will eventually be talked about in the same breath as the all-time greats of the game:

"A lot of guys, they just do it for the time being. For me, it's about building a legacy.

I feel like I can be one of the best players in this league and one of the best players to play this game as far as both sides of the floor," he told USA Today.

Whether George can ultimately match up to the likes of Jordan and Magic Johnson as an ultimate NBA all-rounder it remains to be seen. 

But he feels that what he is producing now is only the beginning:

"I feel like every year I get better, every year I learn something new, and I don't plan on stopping," he revealed.

George is averaging 22.4 points and 6.4 rebounds per game, as well as 1.8 steals on average this season.
