Ask Pacers swingman Paul George what his favorite memory is of his rookie year back in 2010 and you'll get a pretty blunt answer.

Answering fan questions via Twitter over the last 24 hours, the two-time All-Star said his favorite memories from that first year were 1) starting in the playoffs and 2) his then-coach, Jim O'Brien, getting fired early in 2011.

Jeez, tell us how you really feel, PG.
