TrueHoop: Pek is MIP

13

My enthusiasm about Pek's Most Improved Player chances has been curbed, even non-existent at times, due to the lack of press he receives vs. other candidates. Nobody on NBA on ESPN picked him, they picked Ryan Anderson twice & DeMarcus Cousin's (Pek's chew toy) once I believe. Point being, this blog post was surprising. After taking their vote, it looks like Pek ran away with the award. Obviously this is not the real voting but it's ramping up my hopes...

New York Liberty's Kia Vaughn Named Most Improved Player

2

Kia Vaughn's career-high averages in points, rebounds, steals, assists and shooting percentage helped propel her to the top of the 2011 Most Improved Player voting. Vaughn garnered 15 of the 40 panel votes from local and national sportswriters and broadcasters. She is the second straight Liberty player to receive the award, following Leilani Mitchell's 2010 selection. Knotted in second in the voting were Washington's Matee Ajavon and Tulsa's Tiffany Jackson, with 10 votes each. Despite poor season's from their respective teams, both women worked hard to insert themselves as effective team leaders. Also receiving votes were Ashley Robinson (3), Armintie Price (1) and Epiphanny Prince (1).

Roy for MIP

I liked Ball Don't Lie already, but this is a great breakdown. I think we've all seen how special Roy has become.

The most improved players this spring on offense, in coach Scott Linehan’s estimation, might come as a surprise to some: tight end Joe Klopfenstein and running back Antonio Pittman. "Both had to adjust to really tough roles last year," Linehan said. "Antonio coming off being released by the team that drafted him and then coming in here and not knowing the offense. And then Joe, he started as a rookie, and then got moved out of a starting spot. It really wasn’t anything he did. We just picked up a guy (Randy McMichael) that we felt that we were going to play in front of him. It was a tough situation. But Joe has had a great offseason."
