Paul George

Paul George, known for his versatility and scoring prowess, has been one of the NBA’s standout players since entering the league in 2010. Drafted 10th overall by the Indiana Pacers, George quickly made a name for himself with his ability to contribute on both ends of the court.

An eight-time All-Star, he led the Pacers to back-to-back Eastern Conference Finals in 2013 and 2014. After a serious leg injury in 2014, George returned to form and was eventually traded to the Oklahoma City Thunder in 2017, where he finished third in MVP voting in the 2018-2019 season.

George was then traded to the LA Clippers in 2019, where he’s been a critical piece of their contender status. Over his career thus far, he has averaged over 20 points per game and has multiple All-NBA and All-Defensive Team selections to his name.

Danny Granger

The Pacers selected Danny Granger 17th overall in the 2005 NBA Draft. He showed steady improvement in his early years, culminating in a breakout season in 2008-09 when he averaged a career-best 25.8 points per game and was named an NBA All-Star. This season also saw him win the NBA’s Most Improved Player award.

Granger was consistently the Pacers’ leading scorer from 2007 to 2011, but injuries started to impact his performance and availability from the 2011-12 season onward. He was traded to the Philadelphia 76ers in 2014, but never suited up for the team.

Granger would go on to have brief stints with the Los Angeles Clippers and Miami Heat before retiring in 2015. Despite the later years of his career being hampered by injuries, at his peak, Granger was one of the top players in the league and played a crucial role in the resurgence of the Pacers in the late 2000s.
