    Default Most Improved Player: Lin ? What do you think?

    He obviously can't contend for ROY. But he can contend for Most Improved Player barring injury for the last 20+ games.

    Also there is a poll guys.

    Lin only played in 29 games last season averaging less than 3 points per game. He was a end-of-bench player. His meteoric rise to fame this season is still considered by many to be the result of media hype.

    I don't know if he will get enough votes. But he certainly deserves some recognition.

    He has all of asia pulling from him. He's gonna win any award he's in by a landslide.

    Hate to pull the race card there, but expect to see Lin in the all star game in every season until he retires.

    That's just facts.

    Fans don't vote for awards. Its all done by sports reporters, coaches and GMs I think.

    I don't watch every team often, but Lin turned around a franchise. It wasn't that long, but it was a big, plus he's still playing well, and a deserved starter.

    Of course! He went from 12th in the rotation to a starter. How much more improvement can you show?

    All discussions of race and media hype aside, in the immortal words of Jay-Z numbers don't lie.

    with melo and amare max contract and Chandler near max, I don't see how the knicks can afford to keep lin.

    The other teams will buy him for what he could do, and the money he could bring in.

    Lin is the MIP no question. He was treated like a scrub and is not a consistent starter player in what you can argue is his rookie season playing wise

    In my opinion there is no debate that Jeremy Lin is without a doubt this season's most improved NBA player.

    He got CUT on Christmas Eve.

    CUT.

    This guy LITERALLY had NO JOB when the season started.

    He literally went from CUT to HAVING A JOB to D-LEAGUE to STARTING PG.

    No player in the league this year has improved by that degree.

    Monroe is really really good.

    Under any normal year, I think he would get it.

    But Monroe was still very quality last year, as a lotto pick, and had expectations to be improved this season.

    Lin wasn't worthy of a D-league spot on NBA teams as early as *this* season, and was an end of bench player last year.

    He's now starting PG for the Knicks, has single handedly won stretches of games for us, and has a PER above 20.
