Basketball fans, we're ranking the best players who are most likely to win the 2018 NBA Most Improved Player Award. Although no player has ever won the award twice, 2017 MIP Giannis Antetokounmpo is still one of several possible contenders for the award this year. Who do you think will be the 2018 NBA Most Improved Player? 

The current favorites to win the 2018 Most Improved Player Award are Victor Oladipo, Karl-Anthony Towns, Kristaps Porzingis, Myles Turner, and D'Angelo Russell. These young players have bigger roles this season, so expect to see new career highs and record-breaking stats. Other good MIP candidates include Brandon Ingram, Rodney Hood, Gary Harris, and Clint Capela.  

Vote up your 2018 Most Improved Player in the NBA predictions, and add any players who have improved the most this season.
