While players like Gorgan Dragic, DeMarcus Cousins, and Lance Stephenson come to mind to win this years Most Improved Player award (MIP), does Arron Afflalo have a chance to take that award home too? Well, he should.
Here's his stats from last season.
Here's his stats from this season so far.
Granted, he does have a worse team than most of his candidates, but personally, I think he's the number 1 dark horse to win this award. He's been a top 10 scorer in this league, and his asissts have actually increased a little as well as his scoring. Remember, this was a role player back in Denver averaging just 12 to 15 points a game. Now, he's a all-star caliber player who's improved in basically every stat there is. That's major improvement.
