Danny Granger has pulled out a comeback in the Most Improved Award ballot, apparently squeaking by Harris in the tally, the Indianapolis Star is reporting. And the Pacers will make it official, having awaited Granger's return from Italy Monday.

Well deserved...Devin Harris' season was highly overhyped and overrated IMO.

Although I must say Kevin Durant had a great case too...I would vote him runner up after Granger followed by Harris.

so being one of the few players to average at least 21 & 7 is overrated, huh?

:bs:

anyways, Danny Granger deserved it too so i'm not gonna complain.

Nice, congrats to Granger. They should have split the trophy in half for him and Harris....it was that close for me.

Great he gets that kind of credit. Granger plays fantastic basketball, improved his play, carries the franchise and well deserves this award. Congrats !

Granger really elevated his game to super stardom this year. If you look at what kind of player he was supposed to be when drafted and the player he is now no one could have predicted that. As for Devin Harris, he was also a deserving candidate and really developed into a really good pg. If he had won instead of Granger I wouldn't have been disappointed.

Bull S-H-I-T.

In the off-season they trade their franchise, JO. They give Granger a $60m contract extention. He was a 20ppg. Coming into the season, he was supposed to be the Franchise. U should EXPECT HIM TO BE BETTER! Devin Harris deserved it w/o a doubt. Wow, this is ridiculos! Brown wins COY. and now this. Man the awards have been messed up

Oh and NJ wasn't expecting Harris to be better after trading RJ.:rolleyes: I think this could have gone ether way to say it is BS because Granger won is one of the dumbest things I've ever heard. I hope you are an NJ fan because at least have an excuse for being a homer then. If not you are just not very smart or dont watch much basketball.

I was rooting for Durant to get it, but Granger is a deserving candidate

I can see Granger becoming a Paul Pierce type player if he continues to improve his game. Congrats

Good to see him get it but it was close with Harris and Durant right there, could have fallen eaither way but its nice to see him get some recognition, I look forward to seeing him elevate his game even more :)

Should have been Kevin Durant. Eventhough rookies are expected to improve. KD's improvement was just ridiculous!

Anybody who said Harris had an overhyped year is smoking something.
