This award is for the Biggest Pleasant Surprise...the team member that you didn't expect to see do what they did. This could be in their overall game, a particular facet of their game, or simply them having a bigger effect this year than you anticipated. Note that this is not necessarily the same as "Most Improved", which is also a category. Maybe you expected the Most Improved guy to improve, and thus it wasn't a surprise. Maybe your biggest surprise was a rookie who, by definition, can't be the most improved. Or maybe the surprise didn't encompass enough of the player's all-around game to call them Most Improved but was a striking surprise nonetheless.
