Despite Playing Just 12 Games, Andrew Bogut Received A First Place Vote For Most Improved Player

Ryan Anderson was voted the Kia Most Improved Player of the Year by a large margin today by a panel of sports writers and broadcasters. Andrew Bogut, surprisingly received one first place vote, according to NBA.com.

Bogut, 27, suffered a devastating ankle injury early in the 2011-12 season and managed to play just 12 contests for the Milwaukee Bucks. He was traded to the Golden State Warriors mid-season and has yet to play for his new team.

Bogut averaged 11.3 points with 8.3 rebounds and 2.0 blocked shots during his short stint on the court this season. All three of those stats are down from last year’s output of 12.8 points, 11.1 rebounds, and 2.6 blocks per game, as well as from his career averages of 12.7 points, and 9.3 rebounds.

Other players beside Anderson and Bogut receiving first place votes were Marc Gasol, Kyle Lowry, Marcin Gortat, Gerald Henderson, Kevin Love, Steve Novak, Paul George, Ty Lawson, Serge Ibaka, Jeff Teague, Danny Green, Avery Bradley, Goran Dragic, Jeremy Lin, Andrew Bynum, Greg Monroe and Nikola Pekovic.
