Let (X,L) be a polarized manifold with finite automorphism group. Assume that the height discrepancy is $O(d^2)$ for all large embeddings of degree d. Then (X,L) is asymptotically stable if and only if the K-energy is proper on the space of Kahler metrics in the first Chern class of L. In particular there is a cscK metric in the first Chern class of L.
