Sports Illustrated’s Ben Pickman sees Tatum as Most Improved Player

USA Today


Article Summary:


Sports Illustrated analyst Ben Pickman sees Boston Celtics All-Star forward Jayson Tatum as the rightful winner of the NBA’s Most Improved Player award if the season were to end today.

Pickman diverged from some of his fellow Sports Illustrated analysts who felt that as a highly-rated prospect, Tatum’s leap forward should have been at least partially expected.

“A number of players are deserving of Most Improved honors, including Luka Doncic, Pascal Siakam, Bam Adebayo and Brandon Ingram among others, but Tatum went from a 16 point per game scorer to 2018-19 to looking like one of the league’s elite players just before the stoppage.
