Each year the Mr. Basketball of Michigan award is given to the person chosen as the best high school boys basketball player in the U.S. state of Michigan.

The award has been given since 1981. Most of the award winners have gone on to play at the highest levels of college basketball, and many have gone on to play in the National Basketball Association.

Voting is done on a points system. Each voter selects first, second, and third-place votes. A player receives five points for each first-place vote, three points for each second-place vote, and one point for a third-place vote. The player who receives the most points receives the award. Beginning for the 2007 award, votes may only be cast for a predetermined group of five finalists, whereas in the past, the pool was unlimited.[1]
