Sheridan Hoops Most Improved Player Rankings

Yes, we are rankings-crazy here at the home office, where we are now up to five sets of rankings — MVP, Rookies, NBA Power Rankings, Euroleague Rankings … and now Most Improved. We are so rankings crazy we just used the same word four times in the same sentence.

Later in the season, we’ll do the same for Coach of the Year and Sixth Man, which Jamal Crawford has probably already won, right?

There are going to be a lot of Knicks fans upset at who is No. 2, but New York has been getting 3s from everywhere; Dallas has been getting a savior. The nice thing about this ranking is that it likely will not remain as static as the others. You can burst onto this list as a mid-February D-League call-up if you make a big enough impact.

So this one is going to be fun.

On to the ranks …

    Sanders for sure, and yet Skiles sits him at any opportunity. Sanders has to be frustrated. But then everyone is sick of Skiles. Cant with with Skiles, thats a lock. Id add Marc Gasol actually, who really has elevated his game. Lance Stephenson too. Batum, DeAndre jordan, Enis Kanter, DeRozan even …..but the team sucks, which is a shame, as i thought they would be good. Aundray Blatch gets my vote for number on though.

      John, Thanks for reading. This category always has plenty of candidates. Agree on most of your guys but can’t get on board with Blatche because he has shown what he is capable of when he is on his game. Now if there was a “Back from the Dead” award, he would be No.1. Have a good holiday. CB

    DeAndre Jordan has been a beast. Yes, you read that right. DeANDRE JORDAN has been a BEAST.

    Also, if you look at the Clippers wins, almost invariably they can be in large part traced to Eric Bledsoe absolutely destroying the other teams bench guards and single handedly taking the backup PG out of the game offensively.

      Last night in San Antonio, he beat the Spurs with “Spurs” plays down the stretch – follow shots after misses, a big steal, knocking down FTs. Up to the moment, and execution. I love the guy. It’s so obvious why they willingly surrendered Gordon but held onto him.

    What do you think about Nic Batum? He got his first contract so didn’t exactly come out no where, but he has been a top ten player in the league so far.
