Asik is probably the best rebounder & one of the best defenders in the NBA, this isn't even close.

So... most improved player of the year?

Even though similar to Jeremy Lin's situation last year, it isn't so much that Asik improved, it's just that he was put in a situation where he got more minutes and the role he played highlighted his strengths.

Although Harden is the unquestioned best player on the Rockets, Asik's importance can't be understated. The Rockets are a pretty bad defensive team. I mean really bad a lot of games. Their frontcourt also features mostly undersized/stretch PF's who aren't very good rebounders. Asik, though, cleans up a lot of their mistakes on the defensive end and has to take on the lion's share of the rebounding load a lot of games.

Who knows, Jordan may be capable of doing something similar if he was in a different role on a different team, but right now I'd take Asik. In just his first season as a full-time starter, he's shown he can be a defensive anchor, really good rebounder, and score 10-12 a night with the occasional 15-20 point game.

Do you mean Harden? Because that's pretty much exactly what's happened with Harden? I think a lot of OKC fans and even non-OKC fans would've said Harden was capable of being this type of player as the lead dog on a different team. Maybe not 26-5-5 good, but I thought he could be a 22-5-5 type player.

Asik and he is scary, his untapped potential is huge. Dude could not do shit on offense in the Bulls.

At the start of Rocket season he has like 2 pt 18 rebound game. He was just throwing rock up and hope to get foul, recently, dude started running in from FT line and 2h dunking put back. His footwork is good his hands are bad but shows signs of possibility of improvement.(He improve his FT% alot in one off season) he start dunking more often and catching pass better.

In a team oriented offense when guards are actively looks to get him the ball he is capable of scoring. now 11/12, at his peak he can be a 14/12 guy.

One of the best defensive anchors going forward. For a 7-7'1 260+Lb dude, he moves fast and effortless.

He's 7 feet tall, but he looks 7 foot 5 because of his weight.

No I meant Jeremy Lin's situation last year. Where people were nominating him for most improved player because of Linsanity. But in reality I think most of us knew he always was capable of doing what he did during last February (rookie summer league VS John Wall), he just didn't get the minutes or the D'Antoni PG role.

He wrote 7'0" to 7'1". Asik does look big because he is built like a brick wall.
