Indiana Pacers Have All-Star Talents

Nelson Chenault-USA TODAY Sports

The full lineups for this season’s NBA All-Star teams will be announced later in the week. The Indiana Pacers have at least two players on their current starting lineup that should honestly be considered for contention on the All-Star roster. Voting for the All-Star game is mostly a popularity contest, but if performance garners any respect from fans and coaches, then we could very well see at least one player from the Pacers on the Eastern Conference All-Star team.

Starting power forward David West, and starting shooting guard Paul George are both having a terrific season for the Pacers so far. Both players have picked up their game in the absence of former All-Star Danny Granger, and have helped to lead Indiana to one of the best records in the conference. West appeared in two All-Star games previously, as a part of the New Orleans Hornets. George shined in last season’s rookie/sophomore game to kick off the weekend, but is now elevating his play on a regular basis, and should now be considered to make his debut in the big All-Star showcase.

George and West both lead the Pacers in minutes per game and scoring per game. George is averaging over 17 points a game, and West is right behind, with just over a 16 point average. Stats alone do not make a season, and the impact that these players have made on this team are undeniable. West has been the stoic and silent leader in the locker room and on the court. George has stepped up to be one of the most dynamic players in the league. Hopefully the coaches will consider these two Pacers when they cast their All-Star votes, even if many of the NBA fans do not.
