When Rod Thorn trade Jason Kidd to Dallas last season, he was almost apologetic while explaining the deal, as if a package centered around Devin Harris was the best he could do. But Harris has made Thorn look prescient, with a season that no one really saw coming, as Harris emerged as an all-star and became one of just five players in the NBA averaging at least 21 points and 6.9 assists. He also is the third-highest scoring point guard in the league behind Chris Paul and Tony Parker. Harris had three 40-point games and also had the greatest scoring increase from last season, going from 14.8 points to 21.3.

Others in consideration: Danny Granger, Indiana Pacers; Paul Millsap, Utah Jazz; David Lee, New York Knicks

Of course you're right, but it just never stops, does it?
