Vasquez getting Most Improved Player talk (Sheridan Hoops)

quote:

MOST IMPROVED PLAYER: The one-and-done college rule ensures that there will never be a shortage of candidates for this award. I’m sure your team has someone whose improvement this season from last has been a pleasant surprise. And I’m sure I will neglect to mention him. So let’s move on.

Using per-36 numbers as a helpful guide, I always lean toward the already good player who finds a way to elevate his game, such as Philadelphia’s Jrue Holiday, who is knocking on the door of the Elite Point Guard Club, or Oklahoma City’s Kevin Durant, who is on pace for a rare 50-40-90 shooting season.

However, it will be hard to go that route this season because there have been quantum leaps by some of younger guys. The short list includes Portland’s J.J. Hickson, Toronto’s Ed Davis, Orlando’s Nikola Vucevic, Charlotte’s Kemba Walker, Milwaukee’s Larry Sanders and New Orleans’ Greivis Vasquez.

It also includes current front-runner Paul George of Indiana, who should get strong All-Star consideration for his considerable two-way skills. In the absence of Danny Granger, he has made Danny Granger trade bait.

If he keeps his season up he will certainly be a frontrunner

I may be one of the few who believes he can be our PG of the future. He will only get better because he is one of the hardest working guys and the team and as a leader he truly believes this is his team.

I see no reason why not if he continues this pace. Gordon covers up a lot of his weaknesses on defense and he is truly a hard worker. Imagine him next year, new respect, new brand, Davis' second year and Ryno's second with the team...

I'm in.

That's one reason why I'm leaning towards drafting Smart or Burke to back him up instead of drafting a bigger piece of the puzzle at SF. At PG they could learn under GV and not have too much on their plate too soon. Get a guy like Brewer in FA and... well. We're sitting pretty.

As do I. Dell has talked about Gravy being a championship PG will 3 great players around him. We have 2 right now in Gordon and Davis. Give us one more and some experience and we will be a great team

He's about at his peak right now...he can't get faster, much stronger, or shoot much better than he is right now

He doesn't need to improve. If he keeps his play up at its current level, he's set.

I'm not saying he can't improve, but saying he doesn't need to is false. Especially with most players around him being better athletes and those players working to improve their games also.

That's not my point. Every player needs to strive to improve, but the guy is playing at a top 10 PG level right now. Saying he needs to improve implies that he is insufficient, which isn't the case. Sure there are better PGs in the league, but no NBA team has ever started the best player in the league at every position.
