      The players who produced more in the minutes they played this year,
      as compared to last year's per-minute production.

      Perhaps not surprisingly, the list is headed by a few guys who
      barely played last year (and not well), but who got substantial
      minutes this year.

      Then there are the players bouncing back from a sub-par year;
      youngsters still rapidly developing; and the odd player having a
      bustout season.

      After the player's name and team are this year's and last year's
      productivity rate, in per-36-minute projections; adjusted for pace.

      The "imp" number is just ('04-'03) * Min/36

      I know it's a long list; but I kept finding guys whose improvement
      seemed to be 'significant'.
