Most Improved Mystic?
That's an easy answer if you think about it and you just look at the stats.
It's Matee Ajavon. How do you not like this girls game? I know people like to be sexist and say "girls can't ball" but man, can she ball.
Watching her this season, it was like watching John Wall if he had long hair. Ok, maybe not to that extent but she boosted her scoring average from 5.9 ppg from a year ago to 14.7 ppg.
Talk about a surprise?
Matee has the skills to be the point guard or shooting guard and run this Mystics offense efficiently. Next year should be the year she really breaks out and could raise her name to another level. I'm talking all star ability folks. She is a great slasher, she makes the 'Gilbert Arenas' type of circus shots in the lane. Not to mention, she has a nice deep ball.
The girl got it all and the Mystics should rely on her more next season as expectations of this young Mystics team should get bigger and bigger.
I talked to Matee about her opportunities privately and she basically told me that it was all about the opportunity in front of her and she was hungry to thrive.
Thrive she did.
