Ahead of the 2021-2022 campaign, Denver Nuggets star Jamal Murray selects his own teammate Michael Porter Jr as his early pick for the Most Improved Player.
Although we haven’t seen NBA regular-season action yet, players can easily be gauged by their training camp and preseason performances. There are several discussions on the Most Improved Player award, and who will be winning the honor. Several analysts have selected Houston’s Kevin Porter Jr, some selected Golden State’s Jordan Poole and others choose Darius Garland or Keldon Johnson as their favourites to win the honor.
One such player who has been backed to shock the league with the increase in his performance is Denver Nuggets forward Michael Porter Jr. After sitting his rookie year out with a lingering back injury, MPJ had a decent first campaign in his second year in the league, averaging 9 points and 4.7 rebounds coming off the bench.
