15. Natasha Howard
Can a player win Most Improved Player two years running? That may be where Natasha Howard’s career is heading, after serving as a breakthrough glue participant on the 2018 Storm that won it all. She’s averaging a double-double early on in 2019, taking an outsized offensive role without compromising her defensive intensity or versatility, attempting more threes and doubling her assist percentage as she assumes many of the Breanna Stewart tasks for the 2019 Storm. It’s easy to forget, given her many stops already, that Howard is just 27, in the prime of her career, and we’ve yet to see her asked to do something and fail to do it. Add in that her array of skills makes her unique among the league’s players, and she might be too low here, too, especially if her early 2019 production is the new normal.
