Honorable mention

After watching last night Cavaliers game, I think I probably left out two Cavs players from consideration for my most popular player list. Unfortunately, injuries have caused both players' popularity to drop a bit in the past year.

Luke Jackson
He missed two-thirds of his rookie year recovering from back surgery, but is now back in all his messy-hair glory, a key member of coach Mike Brown's bench in the first month of the season. Even when he doesn't score a basket, fans still love to yell "Luuuuuuuuke!" when he enters the game. Having Brown kiss him on the forehead this week only added to the legend of Luke.

Anderson Varejao
How could we forget Mr. Moptop himself? His wild play made him a hit with the guys, his wild hair made the ladies love him. He is sporting a suit during games now as he recovers from off-season shoulder surgery. We probably won't see him back on the floor until after the first of the year.
