Let the CHOsen one get to work!
What are the qualifications for most improved player, I think BJ has to be in contention at season end if he continue to improve. This has to also go down as one of the best acquisitions in team history since Crash. Don't want to sound too homerish but last night he stayed consistent while the rest of the team failed. If he starts and put up 15+ ppg and 10+ rebs this has to go down has a coup
go down to career averages? what does that even mean? I feel like that sentence implies pre-Bobcats career numbers, which makes Timothy Varner clueless and wrong. But its easy to just make some shit up about Byron Mullens cuz you'll probably never get called out on it by anyone on ESPN
8 pts 4 rebs in 10 mins
12 pts 6 rebs in 15 mins
16 pts 8 rebs in 20 mins
Increase mins increase production. Common sense math right?
Mullens in ten games is avg'n 19.3 mins 11.0 pts 4.7 rebs
Almost, but missed on the rebs. Still good stats for a no name brand random 7'0er .
I don't think you can be overrated when no one knows who you are.

Which players have exceeded expectations so far? (PER Diem: Jan. 11, 2012)
The most shocking moment of the season for me came in the Charlotte-Cleveland game, when Mullens scored on four straight midpost isolations -- the last two coming against Cavs defensive stalwart Anderson Varejao. Yeah, this dude can score. The 7-footer has shown a sweet stroke, shooting 49.5 percent from the floor and making 20 of his 21 free throw attempts; he's also scoring in bunches for the otherwise points-starved Bobcats, pumping in 22.8 points per 40 minutes.
His game still looks a bit one-dimensional, but he's only 22 and has virtually no NBA experience. It seems obvious that the Bobcats need to get him more playing time as the season goes on, and it wouldn't shock me at all if he's starting by midseason.
