A rising star among the NBA's big men, center Greg Monroe provides a solid cornerstone on which the Detroit Pistons can build their future. Monroe has shown improvement from last year in almost every major statistical category and is a leading candidate for the NBA's Most Improved Player Award this year. A near selection for the 2012 NBA All-Star Game, Monroe's play this year gives a glimpse of what Pistons fans can come to expect for a long time. The second-year pro, drafted seventh overall in 2010, leads the Pistons in scoring, rebounding, field-goal percentage, steals and double-doubles.
