#8 Blake Griffin (Los Angeles Clippers)
We know what you’re thinking? Blake Griffin as Most Improved? But he’s already a boneafied star. He’s the best player on the Clippers and one of the best power forwards in the league. Yes, yes and yes. However, Griffin is arguably in the best form of his career. He has been dominating now that the Clippers are once again his team, and he’s averaging his highest points per game in his career. For all these reasons, it’s not crazy to believe that Griffin may have a shot.
However as was already alluded to, it is very hard to justify giving the award to Griffin based purely on his star status. As voting has shown in the past, big stars never get their names included due to them already being a star. Who knows though? Griffin may just change that.
