    Default Demar Derozan: Most Improoved Player

    Click on the link and show your love Toronto fans. Vote DEMAR DEROZAN for this years NBA Most Improoved Player Award.

    The NBA has to organize this Award better IMO. I know Gortat is good but how did he get that many votes ! ??? !

    Wow. Gortat. Thats a hack or something right there. It has to be. No way he even garners consideration in real life.

    But besides Gortat, DRose and KLove, Demar is 4th on that list. Not to shabby.

    Nice post.

    IU dont even think Drose or Klove should count. Drose has been playing a high level for some time and was 1st overall. isnt that what u expect from a 1st overall pick? K love has been playing at this level for awhile, it didint only start this year he was having big games for months last year. Ya i dunno how gotat had that many votes either its jsut rediculous./ if u remove drose and love from the list demar is 2nd for most improoved

    I agree that it's not really fair to include DRose on the list, but on straight merit, he does deserve some credity. He has improved his game, and ultimately thats what it comes down too.
    Both guys went from Good, to Great. Or Great to Ridiculous. Still an improvement I guess. haha

    But I do believe that come year end, Demar will garner at least some talk for this award.

    gortat my ass. That parrot nose douche is not the most improved. Demar has made a big leap from last year he should win for sure.

    I dunno guys, Gortat definitely improved once he got to Phoenix. He went from being a bench player for Orlando to consideration for starting next year in Phoenix (also, he's been getting starting minutes in PHX).

    I'm kinda glad that DD is not getting so much attention. Don't get me wrong, I want him to be known through out the league, but when he's fully developed and is the best he can be, not early on in his career. I would like him to stay humble (unlike Carter, Bosh, Andrea.)

    If the wins start coming easier the strong bond DeMar has with his teammates should help him decide to re-up with the Raptors. We've seen it with Vince and we've seen it with Bosh.
    I like the way DeMar has been handled by management. He hasn't had everyone tell him this is his team and that he is a leader. He knows he has a long way to go to reach his potential and is all ears when it comes to what he has to do to get there.

    WHile Gortat won't win the award, his numbers have exploded since he went to Phoenix. His rebounding totals and blocks have doubled and his ppg has tripled Some of you need to kill the hate. It's really ugly and ignorant. I'd love to have Gortat on this team.

    He doesn't deserve it, but I voted for DeRozan anyways.

    I agree, gortat is very good player. i was just surprised as to how many votes he revieved in the poll. as for his stats it seems like his stats should definetly improove if he went frrom the bench minutes to starter minutes. i itnhk he could have started for orlando but he had dwight in front of him obviously.

    Rose is the likely MVP. No way he doesn't win this one as well.

    i hope that the fan voting only counts for a fraction of the vote, Gortat has not improved that much
