Paul George and Kendrick Lamar

Versatility is the name of the game for Kendrick Lamar and Paul George. K. Dot has shown that he can be a critical darling and a mainstream favorite; he's got dizzying lyrical album cuts and joints that work on radio. George is a lockdown defender and killer offensive talent, too, which is how he's become one of the best players in the NBA this year.
