Four-time NBA Champion, Andre Iguodala has snubbed teammate Stephen Curry from his list of NBA’s most skilled players.
Phoenix forward Kevin Durant is widely recognized as the most skilled player in the NBA, with an unstoppable game in his prime.
However, there is another player who shares similar attributes and is also a good defender.
Clippers forward Paul George would have been the perfect matchup for the Suns in the first round, but unfortunately, he suffered a knee sprain, keeping him out of action throughout April.
On a recent podcast episode, Iguodala recently praised George as the second most skilled player in the league, behind Durant, stating that both players have flawless basketball skill sets.
Iguodala, who played most of his career with the Golden State Warriors alongside Durant and Stephen Curry, recognizes George’s skill level, which is a testament to his talent.
Despite Paul’s absence, Iguodala said: “I’m still a fan of Paul George. Paul George [is] the second most talented player in the league to me. He got it all.” A lot of players view Paul George in this way, respecting his game in a way that perhaps some fans and analysts do not. For those who watch him closely, it is clear that Paul George is one of the game’s most elite talents.”
Although Durant has won two championships and is regarded as one of the greatest players of all time, George has yet to reach the NBA Finals in his career.
PG-13 is regularly viewed as one of the most elite player in the league by his peers, appreciating his game in a way that fans and analysts can’t quite understand.
For those who watch him closely, it is clear that George is one of the game’s most elite talents.
If the Clippers manage to advance past the Suns and George returns for the Western Conference semi-finals, they will become one of the most formidable teams in the league.
A championship win would solidify George’s place as a first-ballot Hall-of-Famer, as well as justify the greatness of Russell Westbrook and Kawhi Leonard, who were recently selected for the NBA’s 75th-anniversary team.
