NBA General Managers cast their unofficial votes
GM Survey: 2006-07 Most Improved Player

Prior to the start of the 2006-07 season, NBA.com conducted its fifth annual survey of NBA General Managers, gathering predictions for the coming year.

Now, we’re re-visiting the survey, asking GMs, with the season now complete, who they think are the best in the game in regard to the six season ending awards, as well as the GMs' picks for Executive of the Year. We asked each GM to rank their top three in each category. We, then, awarded five points for a first-place vote, three for a second and one for a third to arrive at our totals.

Of the GM's who responded to our survey, here's who the guys that call the shots think should receive the hardware.
