Lopez Finishes Ninth in Most Improved, CDR Gets Vote

The Rockets' Aaron Brooks was chosen the NBA's Most improved Player Thursday, tallying 403 votes out of a possible 615, four times as many as Kevin Durant, Marc Gasol and George HillBrook Lopez finished in a two way tie for ninth with the Wolves' Corey Brewer.  They both had 19 points.  Lopez scored one first place vote, three second place votes and five third place votes.  Lopez wasn't the only Net on the final board.  Chris Douglas Roberts got one second place vote for three points, same as Paul Millsap and Nene. No Net has ever won the award, although Bobby Simmons won it in 2005 with the Bucks.
