Today, Paul George is going to be name Most Improved Player. Many fans thought the Pacers were doomed with the injury to Danny Granger, who was supposed to be the Pacers’ star and leader. Someone had to step up and produce to take over the star role that Granger once had. Paul George decided to take that step this year. George started every game he played in this year. Last year, George averaged a mediocre 12.1 points, 5.6 rebounds, and 2.4 assists. This year, he improved immensely, averaging career-highs in all three categories: 17.4 points, 7.6 rebounds, and 4.1 assists. The NBA noticed his play, and George was named to the All-Star team this year. Two days ago, George played extremely well and had his second career triple-double. Paul George is definitely deserving of the award, and here is a video of some highlights he had this year.
