Who is the PBA’s most improved player?

apr232007_pj_simon.jpgWhat do [tag]Carlo Sharma[/tag], [tag]Denver Lopez[/tag], [tag]Gary David[/tag], [tag]PJ Simon[/tag] have in common? Well, all of them are in the running for the yearend most improved player plum. It’s not simply a jump in scoring, rebounding or in any statistical average. The award is given to a player who has made the most improvement in terms of overall game and has contributed to his team’s success the current season.

apr232007_denver_lopez.jpgLast year, it was [tag]Marc Pingris[/tag] (2005-06 PBA Philippine Cup finals MVP and 2005-06 Defensive Player of the Year) who won the award. Pingris saw his averages in points, rebounds and block shots jump from 4.63ppg, 3.1rppg, 0.38bpg to 8.9ppg, 8.5rpg, 1.63bpg. More importantly, he played a pivotal part in the Giants’ two finals stint in the 2005-06 season. This year, Sharma, Lopez, Baguio, David and PJ Simon have equal chances of winning the same award. Denver Lopez went from a draft bust (a highly-hyped rookie out of Colorado) to a starter at the point for the Welcoat Dragons.
