Players like James Harden, John Wall and DeMarcus Cousins all showed tremendous potential last season. With another full season of experience under their belts, they look to be among the next group of players to break out in the 2011-2012 NBA season.
While the NBA already compiles All-NBA Defensive, All-NBA and All-Rookie teams as each season concludes, they have yet to acknowledge a team full of the Most Improved NBA players.
Sure, an award is given out to the most outstanding improved player in the NBA, but what about the rest of the players who have made impeccable improvements?
Most improved players deserve recognition as they often become the future of the NBA. Players like Kevin Love, LaMarcus Aldridge and Blake Griffin all stepped into the spotlight last season, and there is a slew of players ready to do the same when the lockout comes to an end.
While most improved players ultimately get overlooked unless they win the Most Improved Player award or are on an elite team, concocting this team eradicates such an injustice.
If this team were assembled, they would ignite fans' love of the game with their captivating play and enthralling potential to get better. Because let's face it, who doesn't love an underdog?
