Amir Johnson now realizes how productive he is

Remember that "Stat geeks love Amir Johnson" post from a couple of weeks ago? I've been sitting on this for a while, but before Game 6 of the Celtics series I asked Amir if he realized he was near universally regarded as one of the most productive players in the league.

Not surprisingly, he didn't have a clue what I was talking about but seemed amused at his lofty ranking. If we can assume that a new coaching regime means more playing time for Amir, is it too early to put his name on the 2008-09 Most Improved Player of the Year trophy?
