Sheesh, some people are REALLY projecting on Carter. Over the last few months, he's been talked up here as the best playmaker of the team, best defender, best prospect, a future offensive hub... and now the most likely MIP! Wow.
Trouble is, he's literally showed us nothing
like that. I don't know where all this is coming from.
As for Dunn...
Not sure if you understand the concept of most IMPROVED. You're basically making my case.
Hey, I guess anyone in the NBA can improve. I just don't see a single sign that Carter is ready for a huge jump. He was a total non-factor last season and might actually get less touches this season. He looks like a future role player to me.
You're overthinking it. It's just process of elimination really. I don't expect any Bull to win the award.
Felicio and Kornet probably won't play enough
Young is too established and old
Lauri, Lavine and Porter were already too productive to have a chance IMO
White and Gafford are obviously ineligible
IMO Valentine, Hutchison and Shaq won't play enough, nor do they have the typical pedigree and physical ability usually seen from the MIP, who is often a good prospect who finally "put it all together".
IMO, Tomas was already too good, relative to Dunn, to have much of a chance. Also I think it usually goes to a guy improving on the same team he was on. Though I would say he's most likely after Carter and Dunn.
Carter's biggest problem was probably foul trouble, but he's really smart so I'm guessing he makes big strides there.
With Dunn, simply put, he sucks but has good ability, and by process of elimination only, I see him as more likely than most everyone else.
