From Most Improved Player to NBA All-Star to All NBA Second Team
Say what you want about his disappointment playoff run, but one thing you cannot talk down is the work ethic of the Toronto Raptors young star.
For Pascal Siakam, the work has never stop and it won’t anytime soon.
Steadily improving each season, Siakam elevated his game last year, winning the league’s Most Improved Player award, helping the Raptors win their first championship in franchise history in the process. He took yet another big step forward this season by earning his first All-Star nomination.

Now, Siakam is a member of the All NBA Second Team.
Averaging 23.6 points and 7.5 rebounds per game, Siakam took massive strides, improving as a ball-handler and shooter. The Raptors also finished the year with their best winning percentage in franchise history. The Raptors forward received 102 votes for a grand total of 168 points, just beating out Boston Celtics star Jayson Tatum for a spot on the All NBA Second Team.
No one is denying that the postseason was a rude awakening for the 26 year old, but if there is one thing we know about Siakam, it’s that he will use this season as fuel to continue to get better!
