With the first quarter of the 2012-13 NBA season already in the books, it is becoming increasingly clear who is the best player each team has on their roster. However, just because a player is elite one season does not necessarily mean they will remain their team's best player the following year.
Young players improve, veterans begin to break down and there is always the potential for an unforeseen development or regression from an unexpected source to shake things up.
Without further ado, here are the 30 players who will earn the title of best player on their team for the 2013-14 season.
*Players who will be rookies in 2013-14 are not counted because the NBA draft order for 2013 is unknown.
