Most Improved Player: Scotty Burrell

Well folks, the title says it all, this guy may actually be for real now
that he's getting the starts and PT. He seems to actually have developed
a jumpshot over the Summer too, and is averaging 17.5 ppg (which leads
the team) after the first 2 games. Can anybody else think of a better
candidate thus far?

Although he's been an all-star in the past, the difference between Duck last year and this year is like night and day. He is actually very active this year he really can move, his shots are going in. Georghe Muresan learned how to run in the off-season too, he could be a candidate if he starts to dominate. They're both scoring and rebounding nicely. The two of them together were about even with Shaq in the game against Orlando.

First, of all, make sure that you press the return key after the end of every
line.  Many newsreaders/terminals won't word-wrap, making your post unreadable.
I added carriage returns for you....not a flame, just some friendly advice.

Back to hoops....Duckworth has been impressive this year.  As a Blazer fan, it
is good to see him flourishing in Washington.  Hopefully, he'll continue to
do so.

However, I don't think Duck would be a good candidate for Most Improved Player,
not because he doesn't deserve it, but because he already won the award, back
in 1988...  I think it would be inappropriate to give it to him TWICE.

Just my $.02,

Go Blazers!  (82-0)    Rush Limbaugh is an idiot!  Rush (the band) is cool!
I'll add a fourth line when I think of one, OSU won't let me have five.....

Yes, easily - Rodney Rogers. Actually, Duckworth might get
Comeback Player of The Year if he keeps it up - a more appropriate
award for someone who once made an All-Star Team.

If he does, then the Comeback Player of the Year award will have to get
the Comeback Award of the Year award-- they don't give it out anymore.
