Raptors forward Pascal Siakam is favored to win Most Improved Player. Kings guard De'Aaron Fox should be leading the race for Most Improved Player.
But nobody is more confident about winning the award than Nets guard D'Angelo Russell.
Russell, via Anthony Pucci of SNY:
“I’m gonna win that s–t. Watch. Put it on record. I’m gonna win it.”
“I’m telling you, I’m winning it!”
Russell has definitely improved a lot. He has taken large role leading the surprisingly solid Nets. His shooting and playmaking are more reliable than ever. He even became a first-time All-Star this season (though as an injury replacement).
