Pacers Paul George is poised to be the next in line for NBA superstar status. George is looking for a basketball mentor to help get him to the next level, and recently revealed that he wants King James to take him under his wing. It would be great to be able to pick his brain, pick his mind and just talk about the game because I think he’s a player that can help me get to the next level and continue to keep going to the next level. I wish some day we have that relationship where he is someone I can talk to—not during the season because I’m too competitive during the season—but maybe in the summertime. Having a basketball mentor is a smart move to make. However, Kevin Durant did that a few years ago, and some have speculated it’s a portion of the reason why the Heat – and King James – had the upper hand against the Thunder in the 2012 NBA Finals.
