If things go right, we could be seeing a PG-13 movie the rest of the NBA season with the return of Paul George. In case you don’t know, he has changed his number from 24 to 13, to align with him new nickname “PG-13”. Obviously after a catastrophic injury like the one he had, nobody knows for sure how much of his game will return immediately, but in the weak eastern conference, his return could very well propel the Pacers into the playoffs, even if it looks like a long shot now.


Paul George spent time Friday afternoon taking care of business in New York City, but getting back on the court was on his mind.

“There’s no exact timetable for my return,” George told ESPN.com from Jay Z’s 40/40 Club, where he had a public design session with New Era Cap to finalize his new logo and work on a collection of hats for the company. “I have targeted March 1 as the date that I would go 100 percent in practice, and if everything felt good, I’d give myself another two weeks to get in shape to play in a game.”

George said he still has a long way to go but “the best part is feeling like a basketball player again.”

Everyone, even fans who hate the Pacers would love to see PG return to the floor. He seems like a real genuine guy away from the game which makes him that much easier of a player to root for to comeback at his best.
