Vucevic and E'Twaun Moore saw big improvements statistic wise from their rookie seasons but I don't know if they'll keep the current pace(especially Moore) so I didn't add them
Jordan and Ibaka score more(3 ppg Jordan ,5 ppg Ibaka),but are actually rebounding less and blocking shots at a similar rate as last year.
Mayo has a big improvement statistic wise from last year,but he had a big rookie season and I don't consider him necessarily most improved..he had it in him
Meanwhile,all the players I listed above are having by far,their best season, production wise
JR Smith says hi
Putting up career highs in every category except offensive rebounding.
Pts, Rebs, Assists, Steals, Blocks, Fewest TO's cept for his 2nd season - 18 MPG and best shooting percentages too. 3 pointers attempted is way down off his career highs too.

Yeah, if JR Smith continues to shoot 64% on 3-pointers, he's pretty golden

I don't think Harden should be considered for this. He has improved, he's been unleashed.

Not Harden because he hasn't improved; he was and still is a great player. He's just getting more minutes as a starter.
I'd say Omer Asik is the most improved player. Just looking at his FT%, he jumped from 50% to 73%. That's insane, along with his rebounding and slightly improved offense.

Definitely Omer Asik. He is also shooting 73% FTs this year. For a guy who barely shot 50% his first two seasons, now THAT is improvement.

Always felt that this award should not really go to 2nd/3rd year guys because you expect improvement.
Ironically though I go Asik.

I have Asik, Reddick and Mayo on my fantasy team, made out nice. I think it's between those three and Harden so far.

Demar Derpzan . The guy is playing like a brand new player. You can really see he went from a boy to a man.

Asik, Harden & Mayo might slug it out...

My vote goes to Redick... the dude went from being a one-dimensional shooter to a ballhandler that can score and make plays for his teammates... Asik,DeRozan, and Batum are also deserving of the award. Players like Mayo and Harden are just getting more opportunities to put up stats.

Advanced stats would say Harden is actually worse only shooting more as a number 1 option. But not nearly as efficiently.
I would say Mayo or Batum. Mayo was thought for dead. Was on the verge of bust status. Suddenly people are thinking maybe if Dirk comes back with the way he has played they can do something.

Asik winning would be a joke. You increase his minutes by 150% and his stats go up 150%? So he's producing nearly the exact same on a minute to minute basis? Sounds like he's the same player and the Rockets should be given credit for giving him a bigger role.
