Voting for the Most Improved Player award is usually wide open. There are always a lot of players who have better seasons than their previous year, and it's up to the voters to determine which one improved to the greatest degree. Last year, 30 different players, including 14-year veteran Ben Wallace, received first-, second- or third-place votes for the award, evidence that among the voters, there are a lot of different criteria.
John Schuhmann of NBA.com thinks Tyson Chandler could be on the short list of finalists for the Most Improved Player award. MMB is going to do some digging and see what the man in question and what his coach have to say about the possibility of Chandler winning the award.
