NBA's MIP Award


@AlexKennedyNBA: Paul George of the Indiana Pacers will be named the 2012-13 Most Improved Player, sources confirm. Official announcement to come.

So much for all that Vasquez talk, but this was a no-brainer.

Has Paul George been that much better than he was last year? He broke out last season but I didn't hear anything about him tearing it up significantly more this season. Jrue Holiday deserved it IMO.

Most rankings I'd seen had him top 3

That plus the fact that Vasquez kind of fell off towards the end of the year, and he probably wasn't even top 5.

doesn't seem like that was much of an improvement compared to. more or less more production due to minutes given, but thats pretty much everyone

He was the guy I was interested in before the 2010 draft and then he went one pick before us. Since the team was in such disarray they probably were always interested in trading back that offseason.

Like most of these individual awards, how your team does plays a part. George's improved production may not be better than anyone else's, but he became leader of a team that is a 3 seed and the guy he took the leadership role from is considered an All Star level player even though he hasn't played like one in a while. Vasquez stepped up his game and lead the Hornets to #5 in the Lottery.

If George is considered, why not Harden? He improved nearly 10 points a game.

That's a valid question but I think the answer is Harden was already considered a star.

Like most awards, it doesn't `go after' what it is named for.

Anderson improved a good bit across two seasons, then they gave it. It seems to me the scope is not limited to the year in which it was given, or prior improvement is factored in more than hard data on improvement in certain objective categories.

These awards are meaningless.

Luke Babbitt got a vote for 6th Man.

And to your Anderson point, his advanced rates have been nearly identical for 4 years now. MIP goes to the guy the voters had never heard of but realized is pretty good- even if they are a year late
