Report: Paul George Wins Most Improved Player Award

Paul George, of the Indiana Pacers, is set to take down the Most Improved Player Award, according to a report by the Indianapolis Star.

J.R. Smith won the Sixth Man Of The Year award, while Marc Gasol is rumored to have taken down Defensive Player Of The Year. It now seems as though George will have an award of his own.

There is no doubt that George is deserving of the award, as he made a massive leap this year. In just his third season, he stepped into the vacancy left by the injured Danny Granger as the main go-to guy for Indiana, and he has delivered.

In his second year, George put up 12.1 points, 5.6 rebounds and 2.4 assists. This regular season, his numbers are up across the board — 17.4 points, 7.6 rebounds and 4.1 assists. He put his versatility on display in Indiana’s playoff opener, recording a triple-double.

Thanks to his great year, George also made his first All-Star game, representing the Eastern Conference.
