Money Mike. Mountain Mike.

Even though this is only the second season that Mike Conley has been a Jazzman, the 33-year-old is in the midst of his first All-Star campaign. And of course, it’s important to mention that he is the third-leading scorer (16.5 points per game) and leading distributor (5.6 assists per game) for Utah at the moment.

Last season, Conley wasn’t too shabby either after ending up in Salt Lake City as part of a trade with the Memphis Grizzlies, where he had shined for his previous 12 years in the league.

The 6-foot-1 veteran guard, who admirably finished runner-up to Steph Curry in this year’s NBA 3-Point Contest, is impressively able to create his own shot off the dribble and serves as a wise leader in the Utah backcourt nowadays. Plus, he’s upped his defensive game this season, averaging 1.3 steals per game, and is shooting a career-high 41.6 percent beyond the arc.
