Wasn't quite sure which forum to put this in, but oh well.

Earl Boykins is the most improved player of the yr.

Close candidates:
Shawn Bradley
Stephon Maubury
Brian Skinner
Jalen Rose

For MIP, I've got to go with Shawn. No other player IMO has had anywhere close to the positive impact that the Mantis has. The Mavs have the record that they do and are in 1st place in large part to Bradleys contribution. Shawn is the only major addition the Mavs made from the end of last season (Shawn just wasn't here last season, his body might have been but little else.)

shawn would be second no my list even tho he's a mav, but boykins is what 5'5? and he's putting up good numbers for that height.

<< Harping. End of discussion. >>


what are you harping on?

shawn bradley?..MIP probably shouldn't be given out to someone that has had an up and down career like bradley..unless he's having a breakout year...which, bradley has done what he's doing now in the past

Whatever happened to the &quot;comeback player of the year&quot; award. Bradley would have that one won hands down.

Troy Murphy.
I think he has improved his rebounding and scoring by at least 5
He has 23 double-doubles that is tied with Dirk. He averages like 12 points and 10 boards a game. I would give it to him or Matt Harpering. Harpering is averaging 18 points a game on 50% shooting he could take the award too. Marbury always could score and rose hasn't really improved. Marbury already has had All-Star seasons. Rose already has won it not two time most improved player.

Matt Harpering wins it for me. Close to finishing the season as the only Jazz to avg more points per game than Karl Malone in like fifteen seasons. Enough said.

Others: Troy Murphy-double double guy
Antwan Jamison_ 23 points he almost has that go to guy look.
Bradley- 7 points 7 boards and 3 blocks okay as a back up to LaFrentz
Bobby Jackson- was shooting 50% percent from the field averaging 20pts per game before he got hurt normally 6th man but he looked close to all-star

Shhhh. No need to yell. i/expressions/face-icon-small-wink.gif If you go by stats alone, Ricky Davis has a great case. If you go by what he's done for his team, he has no case.
