Though Orlando Magic's Ryan Anderson took home the 2011-12 NBA Most Improved Player award today, San Antonio Spurs' Danny Green and Tony Parker garnered a few votes for the award.

Green received 27 overall votes and Parker received three votes for MIP falling way short of Anderson's 260 overall votes.

Green and Parker truly deserved some votes considering Green wasn't even expected to make the Spurs squad and Parker has been having an MVP-type season, leading San Antonio to the West's best record.

This season, Green averaged 9.1 points, 3.5 rebounds, and 1.3 assists in the regular season as compared to last season when he averaged 5.1 points, 1.9 rebounds, and 0.3 assists.

As for TP, he averaged 18.3 points, and 7.7 assists during the regular season as compared to last season when he averaged 17.5 points and 6.6 assists.

Though it is hard to argue against Anderson winning the award, however, for Green and Parker, picking up a few votes speaks volumes as to their contributions to the team this season.

Nevertheless, I am sure both players are more interested in winning the NBA title in June over an individual award.
