What if Batum won most improved player next year?

I was pondering the Blazers' roster as it now stands and how it compares to teams around the league. While doing this I thought "what if Batum makes a huge improvement in his offense like Dragic did last year?" This would instantly thrust Batum into All-NBA second or third team (and All Star although that is a popularity contest) territory because his defense, 3P%, FT%, rebounding, and assists are already at that level. He also was pretty good at getting to the rim last year and has always had a nice stroke behind the 3pt line. If he just added a turnaround jumper he would be a great all around player. This would also give the Blazers a big 3 and depending on who the Blazers add this season could put them into championship contention (personally I hope for Spencer Hawes with MLE, CJ Miles with BAE, buyout Claver and resign Mo but that is a discussion for another day). So what do you all think?
