2012-13 NBA Most Improved Player Award – a Case for Robin Lopez

With the 2012-13 NBA season now over a third of the way completed, the chatter about postseason awards has already begun. Various names have been thrown around for each of them, but for one of those honors, it’s a name that is not getting mentioned which caught my attention. Robin Lopez has come out of nowhere this season to not only fill the Hornets’ hole at the center position, but become one of their most consistent offensive threats. Despite originally being drafted 15th overall in the first round by the Phoenix Suns, Lopez was never able to solidify his status as a starting-caliber NBA center. Here in New Orleans, he has fulfilled that role and more than the team and its followers ever expected. Is it enough to make him a leading candidate for the Most Improved Player award? I say yes.
