2008 Most Improved Player Award

I know it’s early, but I’m going to stake my claim now. I’ve been touting this dude since the first time I saw him play. He will be a complete player. Physically, he’s a force. He can also shoot, rebound, defend, drive and create on his own. The only thing I haven’t seen from him yet, which I would expect is coming based on his skill set, is his ability to create for others, which the Warriors don’t need that as much from him with Baron and Jackson on the roster. I think he’s the next Jason Richardson, but more skilled with ball-handling and not as good in the post. He’s a good guy, he works hard and he’s humble.
The 2008 MIP is none other than Kelenna Azubuike.

See, he’s already got the ladies all over him.
