I was hesitant to pick Isaiah Thomas because of his team’s lousy record, but when Kevin Love won MIP, his team was only 17-65.

This little man is truly impressive; if you haven’t watched him play, then you are missing out. He is fourth among point guards in his PER at 21.31, which is a huge jump from 15th last year with a 17.58 PER.

The departure of Greivis Vasquez gave Thomas a boost in his minutes, which has really shown when looking at his season averages. He is pouring in 21.4 points per game and dishing out 6.4 assists, which is quite an increase from his last year averages of 13.9 and 4.0.

He has really improved his shooting, as well, with a 45 percent field-goal percentage and 37 percentage from deep.

You may have to crown this King as the 2013-2014 Most Improved Player.
