Andrew Bynum finishes 4th in Most Improved Player voting
Bynum finished tied for fourth in the voting for the NBA's Most Improved Player award, not really something a seventh-year pro is supposed to win with the ballot asking for an "up-and-coming" player.
But Bynum's breakthrough season still got him enough votes to tie with Detroit's second-year center Greg Monroe for fourth behind Ryan Anderson, Ersan Ilyasova and Nikola Pekovic. Bynum probably should have been ahead of Monroe, as one first-place vote went to the similar-sounding Andrew Bogut, who hardly played this season.
Brown said of Bynum, 24: "He had a heck of a season compared to last season."
