John Hollinger of ESPN.com handicaps the Most Improved Player race, and has nothing but bon mots for Kevin Martin:
Martin is pumping in 21.6 points per game to keep the Kings afloat, despite the slow start of Mike Bibby and the continued immaturity of Ron Artest. With each passing game, the debate over whether it's Bibby's team or Artest's team grows more absurd -- it's Martin's team, fools, and we'd appreciate it if you'd kindly get out of the way.
Emphasis mine. If you have Insider, make sure to read the full thing, which as nice breakdowns on other MIP candidates, including Utah's Deron Williams, New York's David Lee, and Toronto's TJ Ford.
