Roy Hibbert says Paul George could surpass Reggie Miller as greatest Pacer of all-time

When you think Indiana Pacers, you think Reggie Miller.

But according to big man Roy Hibbert, in the future, you may think Paul George as the former Georgetown product believes that Paul George could go down as the greatest Indiana Pacer of all-time (is this where I make a Kanye West joke?).

Added Hibbert, “Reggie [Miller] is the man in terms of Pacers legacy. I can see [George] surpassing him. He won’t say it, but I will. He’s aspiring to be great.”

There’s no doubt that George has the talent to do so, but it’s a pretty big comparison to place on the young talent who’s only been in the league four seasons (and only essentially started for one year).

Still, it’s not overly outlandish to think that if George continues on his current pace, he’ll eventually become the legendary face of the franchise, assuming he finishes his career (or the vast majority of it) wearing yellow and blue.

Through the first few games of the 2013-14 season, George looks like a potential MVP candidate, averaging 25 points, 8 rebounds and 4 assists.
