    Indiana Pacers forward Paul George says he plans on adding a more physical dimension to his play next season. George's decision to make a concerted effort to beef up his post game comes after Pacers president Larry Bird said in his end-of-the-season news conference that he'd like better post play out of not just George but also center Roy Hibbert. At his end of season news conference, Pacers president Larry Bird said he'd like George to post up more, not only to create more scoring chances for himself but to create more opportunities for his teammates when he draws double teams. Improved play on the blocks from George would not only create more scoring chances for himself, according to Bird, but also create more opportunities for his teammates when he draws double teams. The All-Star forward averaged a career-high 21.7 points per game last season but he posted up just 5 percent of the time last season, ranked 74th out of 74 NBA forward with at least 50 plays, according to ESPN Stats & Information.
