I think Giannis Antetokounmpo will be Most Improved Player. The race is between two people, Giannis and Nikola Jokic. “The Greek Freak” is an amazing player and deserves to be the most improved player.

Giannis played professionally in Greece for Filathlitikos at only 18 years old. He declared for the 2013 NBA draft at 19 years old. He was picked 15th by the Milwaukee Bucks.

This year, is when he improved the most. His averages this year are 22.9 points, 8.7 rebounds, 5.4 assists, 1.9 blocks, and 1.6 steals. He broke a couple of records because of his all around stats.

He became the 6th player to ever lead his team in every 5 statistical categories. He also became the only person to ever be in the Top 20 in points, rebounds, assists, blocks, and steals. He had a very memorable season and deserves to be Most Improved Player because of his big jump in every statistical category.
