3. Brandon Ingram, New Orleans Pelicans
As he continues to shoulder a hefty offensive load while Zion Williamson is out, Brandon Ingram may be the only reason the Pelicans have won any games at all this season. At the start of November, he missed two weeks of action and New Orleans went 0-7 in his absence. Since he returned, they've gone 5-5. Ingram's year-by-year improvement has been eye-opening and he's established himself as one of the best three-level scorers in the game.
2. Paul George, LA Clippers
With Kawhi Leonard still recovering from a partially torn ACL, Paul George has more than carried his weight during this Clippers season. Stepping up as the primary scoring option for L.A., he's scoring 25.9 points per contest, good for 6th in the league. The Clippers probably aren't a contender without the Klaw, but he's doing a solid job of keeping them afloat in the West.
1. LeBron James, Los Angeles Lakers
It's his 19th year in the league, and despite more time sidelined from injuries than he's used to, LeBron James remains one of the best players in the world. Father Time is still undefeated, and LeBron has definitely slowed down from the player we used to know him as. But when he's healthy, he continues to produce for this bizarre Lakers team. The top spot is still his to lose.
