If you were asked to name the best all-around player currently in the NBA, few of you (if any at all) would pick Indiana forward Paul George. In fact, there’s even a good chance that unless you’re a Fresno State alum or Indiana native, you probably didn’t even know who the guy was up until recently, when George was named Most Improved Player of the Year in the Association.
Now, whether the second-year player for the Pacers is in fact the best all-around player in the league, we’ll leave that up for debate. But after the tremendous year George had—a year in which he averaged a career high in both points (17.4) and rebounds (7.6), and was the only player in the NBA with at least 140 steals and 50 blocks—surely we can all come to a consensus that the 6-foot-9 swingman has a bright future ahead of him.
