Paul George's return to the NBA has been emphatic. After missing a whole year with a broken leg, the forward returned to the All-Star Game, led the Indiana Pacers to the playoffs and was involved with Team USA as they won a gold medal in Rio de Janeiro.

Throughout the offseason, PG13 has been in a bullish mood, saying he was finally ready to get the better of LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers and now stating he is aiming to be MVP come the end of the regular season. 

It will take a big effort for the Pacers star to claim the award but his confidence has to be applauded. 

Speaking on Sirius XM NBA Radio on Wednesday, he said: "I definitely want to be MVP this year. 

"It would be a challenge, but with coach Nate and the guys that I got here, I'm in a position to move into that spot, as long as I remain being me, being a leader, being aggressive, and wanting that.

"It's not mine for the taking. I gotta go get it. And this is my year to go get it."

George will be going all out this season to prove he can be a true superstar. It should be interesting.
