9. Paul George (Indiana Pacers)
The Indiana Pacers are still in the mix in the Eastern Conference and Paul George is trying his best to carry the mediocre roster. George has simmered down from his tremendous start to the season but he’s still been one of the top stars in the sport. Indiana’s success goes as far as George can lead them. It will be interesting to see if he can make it a full season of success as the leader of the team.
