3) Who will lead the Pacers offensively?

Siskin: PG and Ellis. No doubts. Don’t be surprised if Myles Turner becomes our third option as the season progresses.

MuncyPaul George. If anyone else is leading this offense, then something has gone horribly wrong…again.

Wilson: Paul George without a doubt. PG has looked really fluid in the preseason and playing time as a stretch 4 should do wonders for him on the offensive end.

Rund: Duh. Is there any doubt it’ll be anyone other than Paul George? And no, being placed at the power forward spot will not hinder him in the least.

Turpen: Paul George. As we saw this preseason, PG is back and better than ever. The offense can, and should, run through him.

McKee: Paul George will remain the leader of this team for years to come. George Hill led the team in PG-13’s absence, but now Paul is healthy and ready to retake the reins and lead these Pacers to victories once again.

Stewart: PG-13 is the obvious choice, but I’m excited to see how Ellis ends up settling during the course of the regular season. He remains an undervalued pick-up even after the attention he received in preseason.
