Paul George, a lock for this year's All-Star game... Is in his third year.
In his second year, his stats weren't even close to the stats of Jeff's second year.
Jeff Green has had much more experience and is nearing his prime.
A the least, he's a sure fire All-Star.
So again, Green reached his level of play in his second season and George surpassed that level by his third season.
George only surpassed it because Granger is injured.
Green is stuck behind Pierce and was stuck behind Durant.
George was starting last year. He showed marked improvement going into his second season. He has shown a similar improvement going onto his third season. I wouldn't be shocked if we saw more improvement going into his 4th season.
Green showed marked improvement going into his second season... And became a 16 point scorer.
He did in his third season too, until the Thunder realized Durant was too good. So, now Green is stuck between his second- and third-season abilities at age 26. And until Pierce leaves, that's where he will stay.
He was a guy that played 37 minutes a game for them.
Took around 13 shots.
Would hit around 6 of them.
And grab 6 rebounds.
There isn't a huge swing in any of those seasons. And when you take his numbers from the Celtics and compared them per minute, use see that he has the exact same rates.
Green is the player that he is. And he has been this player now for 6 years now.
