Pacers’ Paul George Wants ‘No. 1 Guy’ Tag

(Paul) George said he still considered Danny Granger the Pacers’ leader at this time last year, as Granger had been the team’s most productive offensive player for several seasons.
George looks forward to his teammate’s return, but he understands this is his team after leading the Pacers to Game 7 of the Eastern Conference finals vs. the Miami Heat.
“A lot comes with that,” George said. “This whole summer, I really trained being the go-to guy and the lead guy for our team. Last year, we still had Danny and did not know the results (of Granger’s injury) coming into the year. I had a role that I had kind of prepared for and trained for. This year, it was more about training to be the No. 1 guy and lead this team.”
