Underachieving Valuable Player: Carmelo Anthony
-Should have done more with the Knicks. Lowest scoring since sophomore year. He needs a change of scenery, but that no trade clause has handcuffed the team.

Defensive Detriment Player of the Year award: James Harden
-One of the reasons the Rockets fell from 8th to 22nd defensively starts with one of their leaders. He stepped back defensively from last year, and defensive effort is contagious.

Least Impressive Rookie Award: Mario Hezonja
-Couldn't crack the rotation in Orlando and hasn't lived up to comparisons of Ginobili as of yet.

Underperforming 6th Man Award: Gerald Green
-Looks like a scrub who will be back in China next year

Least Improved Player: Greg Monroe
-Many felt moving back to his more natural Center spot and him joining a playoff team could help improve the Bucks. Instead his stock is at rock bottom. It's entirely possible he peaked 3 years ago at 22 and is just an empty stats player.

Underachieving coach of the year: George Karl
-Should have found a way to get the Kings in the playoff hunt. He's likely done for good as a head coach.

Spot on with the Greg Monroe as least improved...Moose hasn't improved 1 bit since entering the league IMO, still a turnstile on defense and can't make a shot outside of 10ft.

spot on with Monroe & Green, everything else was way off.

Underachieving Valuable Player: Kobe Bryant - shooting 16.4 time a game at 35.4% 6.9 3pt per game at 28.5%... that's pretty awful.

Defensive Detriment Player of the Year award: Rajon Rondo - completely disinterested in stopping opposing ball handlers. Gambled in the passing lanes all the time to pad stats. Left open shooters on defense because he cheated to get rebounds.

Least Impressive Rookie Award: Emmanual Mudiay - a -2.2 WS, shot 36.1% FG, 66.7% FT, 32% 3pt, while turning over the ball 3.2 times a game. Pretty much was handed the keys to the franchise and wasn't able to really do much with them.

Underperforming 6th Man Award: Trey Burke - Went from starting, to 6th man, to not even playing anymore.

Least Improved Player: Anthony Davis - With expectations of being a MVP candidate and an another playoff berth, AD struggled with injuries (along with the rest of the team) and never got in a rhythm during the year to take the next step to be an MVP.

Underachieving coach of the year: Fred Hoiberg - Took a veteran perennial playoff team (8 straight years) and last year's #3 Eastern Conference team, to missing the playoffs.
