Can you guess who gave Tyler Zeller a 1st place “Most Improved” vote?

Chicago’s Jimmy Butler rightfully won the Most Improved Player award. He got 92 first place votes and 535 points overall to beat out Draymond Green, another worthy contender, pretty easily. Scanning through the list of vote-getters, I was struck to see a Celtic on there. Tyler Zeller. Now, Zeller had a nice year and he certainly improved over last year, but MOST IMPROVED? You’d...

WATCH: Tyler Zeller Dunks, Embarrasses Matthew Dellavedova

Tyler Zeller is not known as a high-flying, backboard-shattering dunker. Fortunately for the Boston Celtics center, Matthew Dellavedova is not an elite rim-protector. Early in the first quarter of Sunday’s matchup, the 7-foot Zeller took flight over the 6’4″ Cleveland Cavaliers guard, who turtled away from his ill-fated blocked attempt and put himself on a poster.
