10. Danny Granger

Danny Granger played the majority of his career with the Indiana Pacers, where he was a model of consistent progression.  This isn't hyperbole as he became the first player ever to raise his Points per Game Average by at least five points in three consecutive seasons (2005-06 to 2008-09).  In that last season, Granger had the best year of his career as his 25.8 PPG placed him 5th overall, and he would also be named an All-Star and the Most Improved Player of the Year.  Granger was never an All-Star again, but he followed that up with two more 20 PPG plus seasons, and he was the team's leading scorer for five straight seasons.

113. Danny Granger

Drafted by the Indiana Pacers in 2005 off of a solid collegiate run with both Bradley and New Mexico, Danny Granger would have three seasons in the National Basketball Association where he exceeded 20 Points per Game, and two of them had a PPG over 24. The Small Forward holds the distinction of being the only player in NBA history to grow his PPG by 5 or more annually three years in a row.  He would be named an All Star in 2009 while also being named the NBA’s most Improved Player of the Year.
