Monroe’s Breakout Season May Yet Be Rewarded

Second-year center Greg Monroe didn’t make the All-Star team, but he could become the first Piston to win the NBA’s Most Improved Player award.

Coming out of the All-Star break, Monroe had the league’s biggest increase in scoring average from last season. He was averaging 7.3 points per game more than his rookie year (16.7 points per game from 9.4), slightly ahead of Atlanta guard Jeff Teague (7.0 points per game increase). New Orleans Hornets guard Jarrett Jack (6.2), Chicago guard C.J. Watson (5.5) and Orlando forward Ryan Anderson (5.5) rounded out the list. Minnesota forward Kevin Love won the award last season.
