    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.
    True. I would like to see Jeremy win just because of the circumstances as well. I think Greg is his biggest competition for the award tho.

    Lin deserves most improved player... so does a few other players but what Lin has done is spectacular.

    No disrespect to Monroe, i love his game but Lin's on a playoff team and hes the only reason why we're a playoff team. If it wasnt for those 8 wins during Linsanity, we'd be at least a few games behind the Bucks. Hes been a big part of this 4 game LINning streak as well

    Lin has to get it this year no player has had a complete 180 turn around in play like he's had in one year.

    Yeah I don't think its even a contest this year as long as Lin keeps putting up averages of like 16/7 with less TO's he's a lock.

    And he deserves it for sure, it's the biggest improvement I've ever seen in 18 years of watching the NBA.

    It's going to be a race between Lin, Monroe, and Ryan Anderson.

    Don't think Lin should win. It's not like he played like a scrub for 5 years then all of a sudden play like this. I think he is a good player last year as well, just not given a chance. If you look at it like this, he is not the most improved player.

    I kind of agree, I don't know how many people were paying attention to his game prior coming here. I know I wasn't and I'm sure many of his new fans weren't either. So it's hard to speculate on an unknown. I doubt we've seen enough of him yet to accurately determine how much he's improved as a player. However, judging from his character and drive...I see a bunch of potential.

    I haven't watched enough of the games to know if Jeremy Lin is the most improved, but I have to say he (along with his team mates) are playing pretty darn good!

    No one except his parents.

    Lin didn't improve his game. He was never given the chance to showcase his talent. This is kind of like Columbus discovering America.

    It was there already.

    Uh, Lin most certainly did improve his game. He worked on his shooting, amongst other things.

    So, you're saying that Lin already had the talent, correct?

    I was referring to the point in time when Lin was inserted into the lineup.

    When he was sitting on the bench, how did any of us know that he can ball?


    Anyway I doubt he had improved his shooting by much since he became a starter.

    Isn't that why you joined KO, not that there is anything wrong with that.

    There was no magical transformation of Lin's skill set. He was already a good player since his high school days.
