    Most improved player?

    Who would your current vote be for most improved player of the year? I'm thinking in the real NBA not just for fantasy purposes.

    It's so hard to tell with this one. I've seen some lists who include guys like James Harden or Paul George. Both granted have had major improvements this year, but they were already pretty damn good. To me it seems like it should go to a player who was more ineffective last year than those guys. Harden as a 6th man in OKC was a crucial part of their playoff run, so it's not like he's turned from a scrub into an all-star.
    I am probably forgetting some, but here is a list of the top 10 players (in no order) I think should at the very least be in the discussion. Some of them translate into fantasy, some don't.
    Greivis Vasquez
    Larry Sanders
    Nikola Vucevic
    Chandler Parsons
    Avery Bradley
    Tristan Thompson
    JJ Hickson
    Omer Asik
    Byron Mullens
    OJ Mayo
    And then a few who have really improved but IMO had too much value last year to be considered:
    Paul George, James Harden, Jrue Holiday and Kemba Walker. And if we include players who have improved but already had value, it's hard not to include Lebron. He's always been incredible and as much as I personally dislike him he has had an amazing season.
