Los Angeles Clippers star Paul George lauds Houston Rockets rookie Cam Whitmore, predicting a bright future for the budding talent.

Impressed by Whitmore’s performance, George sees the 19-year-old forward as a potential star player in the making.

Speaking on Podcast P, George commended Whitmore’s shooting, ball-handling, explosiveness, and defensive tenacity, highlighting his all-around abilities.

“I was extremely impressed with his game,” George said about Whitmore, via ClutchPoints. “He’s a player that is going to shake up some things in Houston and can be a star player. I saw stardom on both ends. He played hard on both ends.

“He can shoot it. He can handle. He’s explosive. He was strong. He had a nastiness to him that you don’t really see in a lot of super young guys. He was trying to challenge me. He was challenging Kawhi. He’s a name that I think, because he’s a rookie, hasn’t had much coverage on him, but he will be good.”

Whitmore has been showcasing his skills on the court, averaging 12.1 points and 3.9 rebounds per game for the Rockets.
