Why Paul George IS NOWHERE NEAR being a superstar! “Disappearin’ Acts”

Joan Jett, the singer-songwriter, once said, “For me the challenge isn’t to be different but to be consistent.” Dwayne Johnson broke it down like this, “Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.” Then Tony Robbins, the author, shut the buildin’ down when he spit, “In essence, if we want to direct our lives, we must take control of our consistent actions. It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.”

Well playas…in order for Paul George to be considered a superstar in the NBA he’s gotta become more consistent! Like ole boy just said, “It’s not what we do once in a while that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently.”  He isn’t consistent and then wants to look around at everybody else for the consistency!! After a 118-111 loss in NYC to the dull Knicks on Tuesday night this dun had the nerve to say, ”

“It’s frustrating. We just can’t get the job done. Inconsistent team. That’s all there is about this team. It’s just an inconsistent team.” What!!!??

Let’s keep it real or all the way 100, whichever comes 1st! The superstar is the dun that’s supposed to take over when it gets thick playboy. Not blame the team for not bein’ consistent. Ole boy was 1 of 8 in the second half. In other words, he disappeared when they needed him most!! You can’t be called a superstar when you run and hide in the ride and start eatin’ Skittles and Lemonheads!!

Melo showed up in a pinch and knocked down 26 of his 35 points in the second half bruh! Say what you want about “no defense playin’ Melo” but he’s gonna shoot your eyes out darn near every night. And when they needed him he started knockin’ boyz down. That’s what a superstar does.

He doesn’t blame his team for bein’ inconsistent when he goes 1 of 8 down the stretch. Naw playa, it doesn’t work that way. Paul George is a solid role player at best! Just like I used to tell boyz about Danny Granger. He’s not a superstar because you can’t depend on him in a pinch consistently!!! Role player at best.

Duns like LeBron, D.Wade, KD, Steph Curry (In every game but the Finals), John Wall, The Beard, Young Russ are superstars. PG13 is a role player that needs a superstar.

Oh I’m talkin’ crazy? Go back to Game 5 in the playoffs last season in Toronto when the Pacers were up 90-77 goin’ into the fourth quarter with a chance to go up 3-2 headed back to the crib. Paul George had 37 points through 3 quarters and finished the freakin’ game with 39. You do the math playboy and tell me if he’s a superstar.

The superstar consistently comes through when the team needs them. They don’t disappear when boyz jump out of the ride ready to fight. They had the dull, dull Knicks, Phil Jackson’s Knicks down 15 points in the third quarter and loss with Paul George healthy and on the floor. Stop it!! He’s not a superstar! I could name you more instances of him disappearin’ but why?

He goes 1 of 8 and then says that the TEAM isn’t consistent? He’s nowhere near bein’ a superstar!! Stop me when I start lyin’!
