Handing out the Hardware: CHD’s picks for the players of 2013 (Part 1 of 2)

As we begin a new calendar year we look back at non-conference play to announce our picks for the players of 2013 from each conference. Each month Jon Teitel will rank the best five players from every conference based on their fantasy/statistical value. Players are listed in a standard five-position lineup (G-G-F-F-C) when possible, with several exceptions. If you think he has overlooked anyone, feel free to post your feedback in the comments section below.
