Basketball: Player of the year: possible conference nominees (men's edition)

This is not a complete and final list of top performers like this one from last year, because some conferences aren't done yet and I need the totals for the entire league. But we can look at preliminary leaders in each conference, as a precursor to their respective player-of-the-year nominees. In other words, your short list of nominees should include each of these players, but may also include others as well.

No commentary is provided below, since I will do that in more detail with the final rankings (due to come after all regular-season games are completed). I also haven't included the actual number I used to rank everyone; it is essentially a poor-man's version of PER, but the details don't matter to us for now. This is all about making a short list of possible nominees, and providing a basis for debates (well, and also acting as a sneak preview for my end-of-year rankings, too).

Anyone with 400 or more minutes (20:00 times 20 games) qualifies for these lists (though I relaxed the requirements here and there). Players are listed in alphabetical order, and the number of players per conference equals the number of teams in that conference.
