    Although this is usually the hardest award to be pre-determined, who are your early candidates for Most Improved Player next season? Guys who could make significant leaps next year IMO:

    Markieff Morris
    Victor Oladipo
    Bradley Beal
    Kemba Walker
    Dare I say, Evan Turner? (big gamble, and only if Stephenson leaves)

    ...any others you would add or ones you would remove from my list?

    Personally I would leave players on rookie contracts out for this "award" - these guys are expected to improve during the course of their first 3-4 years in the league - if they didn't they wouldnt see another NBA contract.

    I really feel the award should be for players who taken a more than average jump later in their career

    Greek Freak, I think, will make major strides. He might not win MIP, but I think he'll definitely turn some heads.

    Surprised no one is saying Rubio

    I guess because we all know he'll never make it to Lowry and Dragic level

    James Harden for Most Improved Defender!

    Gotta at least double those All-Defense team votes!

    I kid.
