Just over a month into the 2012-13 NBA season, we have a better idea of which players and coaches lead the charge for the league’s major awards.

Contending teams have separated themselves from the pack by getting off to hot starts. Other teams thought to be contenders, like the Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, Chicago Bulls and Denver Nuggets, have sputtered out of the gates. They’re all hovering around .500 records.

Note: All statistics used in this article are accurate as of Dec. 5, 2012 (prior to games played).
