22-year old small forward Paul George has been named the 2012-13 NBA’s Most Improved Player. He won the award by playing in 79 games (all starts) for the Pacers in 2012-13 and he averaged 37.6 minutes, 16.7 points, 7.3 rebounds, 4.0 assists and 1.7 steals per game. He had 23 double-doubles and 1 triple-double for the Pacers this year. He scored more than 20 points in a game 34 times this year and he had at least 10 rebounds in 22 games. With Danny Granger missing most of the 2012-13 season, the Pacers needed someone to step up offensively and George was that guy. He played in 66 games (all starts) in 2011-12 for the Pacers and he averaged 29.7 minutes, 12.1 points, 5.6 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 1.6 steals per game. George deserved this award as he really stepped up his game for the Pacers in 2012-13.
