Roy Hibbert says Paul George is looking like LeBron James

The Indiana Pacers are expectedly struggling so far this season without Lance Stephenson, now in Charlotte, and their star Paul George, who broke his right leg over the summer. George is currently rehabbing for his return, which isn’t expected to be anytime this season. 

George’s teammate, center Roy Hibbert, recently commented on George’s recovery, via Gary Washburn of the Boston Globe,

He’s been good. He’s been shooting, running in the pool, he’s coming along, and I’m very optimistic,” teammate Roy Hibbert said. “It’s great having him around. He’s working really hard. His upper body is a lot bigger. He’s almost looking like LeBron [James].”

Whoa now. 

George was saying before his injury that he planned on bulking up and spending more time in the post this season, but a comparison to LeBron James is clearly premature on Hibbert’s part. It does imply that the effort in that regard hasn’t changed for George and his commitment to developing his body might even strengthen with this time off.
