The Favorites – It’s a good time to be a Porter Jr. (except for you, Otto, sorry). But Michael (+900) and Kevin (+1000) are the betting favorites at DraftKings for Most Improved Player. Michael finished third last season, when he bumped his scoring average from 9.3 points as a rookie to 19.0, made 46 more starts and became one of the league’s best shooters for a Denver Nuggets team that was the third seed in the Western Conference. He’ll have the chance to score even more with Jamal Murray slated to miss a good chunk of the season, but he’d have to make a significant leap toward superstardom to have a chance at the award after already making such strides from Year 1 to Year 2.
