He's our MVP and our franchise player, one of the only guys who's been improving by giant leaps every year. Lack of character? Please.
Markov has never matched Malakhov's best season of 50+ points, and despite his considerable talent, he's not Malakhov's equal in terms of pure talent. I like Markov, and he makes the team better when he's in the line-up, but there might be some over-ratage going on here. IMO, at least, the truth is somewhere between Markov as Divine and Markov as Problem Child.
