Hooray for generalizations! So it'd be impossible for a player in a contract year to...

Love the game, and play well because he practiced more
or
Get more minutes, and gain confidence/play better in them

Seems fair enough, because those scenarios never EVER occur...

they get more minutes cause theyre playing better/harder.

mike james was traded to a bad team so thats a little different.

yeah, they all "love" the game int heir contract year .. of course after they get the deal they always "love" it less... right

The sentiment seems correct, but...

Alvin Robertson, 4-time all-star
Dale Ellis, all-star
Kevin Duckworth, 2-time all-star
Kevin Johnson, 3-time all-star
Dana Barros, all-star
Tracy McGrady, 6-time all-star
Jermaine O'Neal, 5-time all-star
Gilbert Arenas, 2-time all-star

8/20 MIP winners are all-stars. The picks they are making aren't that bad.

Why, exactly, should one person be penalized for a transgression someone else? This is the necessary result of what you are asking for.

I love LameR's sarcasm. LameR & SeaNet make good pts. There's no way a player should get penalized for generalizations.

Drastic improvement during a contract year does draw a lot of questions as to the motivation tbehind the improvement. I think it is something that should be taken into consideration when the voters decide but I don't think it's fair to eliminate all contract year players from consideration.
