Back in 2012-13 NBA campaign, the Indiana Pacers finished third in the East behind New York Knicks and Miami Heat. The following NBA season, Pacers is on the top of the Eastern Conference finishing a record of 56-26 (W-L).
The Pacers eventually reached the Eastern Conference Finals on those two seasons and faced the Miami Heat who was led by the three superstars in Bosh, Wade and LeBron.
Those two consecutive successful campaigns were on the A-list of Pacers history book and one big reason why they made that strong push in the East is Paul George.
The 10th pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, a member of USA National Team and an All-Star is our featured player for today.
1. From 6’8 to 6’10
According to the December 2011 article of sportingnews.com, Paul George grew 2 inches tall.
Which means that from his listed height of 6’8, the Pacers guard/forward is now 6’10. With the combination of his height and athleticism, PG is destroying opponents whether he’s in offensive or defensive mode.
