Goran Dragic Named NBA Most Improved Player

Goran Dragic Named NBA Most Improved Player (1)

words // Brandon Richard

Almost every “expert” predicted that the Phoenix Suns would be one of the worst teams in the NBA prior to the season. However, they were in playoff contention until the final week. Because of that, coach Jeff Hornacek was runner-up for NBA Coach of the Year, and the team’s leader Goran Dragic brought home Most Improved Player honors today.

Dragic led the upstart Suns in both scoring and rebounding. His 20.3 points per game were up big over last season’s 14.7. He also established new career-highs in rebounding and field goal percentage and was the only player in the league to shoot at least 50% from the field and 40% from three-point range.

Indiana’s Lance Stephenson was the runner-up for the award, followed by Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Pelicans.

An adidas Basketball athlete, Dragic spent this season playing in the Rose 773 II, which is available now at Eastbay.
