07:30 AM ET 12.25 | This year, there's less of Jae Crowder to love. Last season around Christmastime, [Crowder] felt the weight of the world on him. Or at least the weight of his waistline. As a rookie, his scoring average dipped every month until February, then dipped the last two months of the season, too. His pre-All-Star numbers were better than his late-season numbers. It could all be traced to the weight that he was packing. ... [This season,] Crowder is considerably less of a man than he used to be, which in the area of weight is a good thing. And it is showing. "Of course, that's the difference," Crowder said. "I feel better. Mentally, I'm locked in. And physically, I have more energy, even in practice. I just have more juice right now. If I can tell everybody my story, from the first year to the second year, I'm happy to."

I like this guy's attitude.

This should be every player's attitude. He did really improve this year and got more consistent. He is finding ways to help the team.

Another candidate for MIP, perhaps.
