In an interview with NBA Inside Stuff reporter Dennis Scott, George confessed, “I really wasn’t ready for that moment.”
George mentioned that he wasn’t particularly prepared to be the go-to guy on the team at the beginning of last season, but he did what he needed to do to fit into the role.
He eventually excelled in the position, leading his team to the 2013 Eastern Conference Finals. There, he and his team went up against league MVP LeBron James and the defending champs Miami Heat, taking them all the way to game seven where they eventually lost.
