WATCH: Clippers star Paul George schools 21-year-old Blazers forward in viral video

Paul George has had a successful NBA career with a total of 10 NBA All-Star inclusions, currently playing for the Los Angeles Clippers. In a recent viral video, Paul George was seen mentoring Jabari Walker, a youngster drafted by the Portland Trail Blazers in the 2022 NBA Draft.

The internet is loving this side of PG-13 and applauding him as a great teacher. It was previously reported that both the players were training together this off-season and now a video has surfaced proving the same.

Paul George teaches skill moves to Jabari Walker

Paul George was seen teaching Jabari Walker some special moves and how to read the opponent on the court. The 21-year-old Blazers forward was listening intently and observing the veteran, showing his determination to learn and grow. Jabari is the son of former NBA player Samaki Walker who was George’s teammate during his run with the Indiana Pacers in the 2013-14 season.

It is very humble of PG-13 to teach and mentor young talents in the league. It could also be a sign of Paul George’s secret interest in becoming a coach after his retirement.

The Clippers star is surely helping the Blazers rookie develop into a successful NBA player. He also recently gave out his opinion on who should be named the rookie of the year. Jabari Walker has the potential to become an NBA superstar and will be looking to learn as much as he can from the seasoned veteran.

Jabari Walker’s last season performances for the Blazers

Jabri Walker’s last season with the Portland Trail Blazers can be called a mixed bag. He wasn’t extraordinary but not exactly underwhelming for a rookie. He had moments where he displayed great potential but struggled with consistency to maintain those levels.

In the 43 games he played, Jabari averaged 3.9 points, 0.6 assists and 2.3 rebounds. Walker’s best game was against the Memphis Grizzlies where he has a standout performance, scoring 16 points and 6 rebounds in a Blazers win over Grizzlies. He also had a few other games where he scored in double digits like the 14-points against the Sacramento Kings.

On the other hand, Jabari Walker had some pretty rough games as well. He struggled to make any impact in four consecutive appearances in the month of February where he averaged a mere 1.3 points per game.

Overall, his rookie season can be considered a learning experience where he got to know the bar of hard work required in the league. He has shown potential to be a great player but needs to work on consistency and his shooting ability. Now that he is spending time under the tutelage of a veteran like Paul George in this off-season, we can hope for an improved performance in the upcoming games.
