Most Improved Winner a Warrior?

The league will announce the winner of the Most Improved Player Award on Thursday. The timing of it might be a good sign for the Warriors, because it means they will be home for the announcement.
The league likes to, if they can, schedule the announcement so the player can receive the reward in front of his home crowd. If it was Kevin Martin, why wait? That could’ve been the first award they announced?
It could be Deron Williams, who will also be at home. But you still have to like Monta Ellis’ and Andris’ Biedrins chances. I am thinking Monta will get the award if a Warrior gets it.

Marcus Thompson

    It has to be Monta or Andris. Kevin Martin was already good last year and Deron Williams was a top 3 pick. Martin just got more minutes to put up more buckets and Williams was expected to put up these kind of numbers.

    Hey Marcus. Don’t know about you but just seeing that ‘Playoffs’ sticker on the floor on Friday will already make the season a success regardless of the result of the series! Is there such thing as hanging a banner on opening night next year for getting the 8th seed? Ha!
