Mike Kahn thinks so:
Most improved player: Zach Randolph, Portland Trail Blazers. Looking like a latter-day Willis Reed, Randolph has that big body, quick feet and great instincts for rebounding the ball. He has countless release points and deft left-handed touch around the basket and is one of four 20-10 players in the league. All that and he's just 22, in his third season. Also under consideration are Andrei Kirilenko (Utah), Erick Dampier (Golden State) and Carlos Boozer (Cleveland), and a late candidate could be Joe Johnson (Phoenix).
