NBA: Unsung MVPs

Brandon Jennings – I have to admit that I’d sworn him off before this season. What good was assembling a team that shoots the ball efficiently if you’re going to add a guy that shoots 5 for 16 every night? He’d bring down your whole squad. Well, Jennings hasn’t been that guy this season. Through 19 games, he’s shooting 44.1 percent from the field, up from 39 percent last season. One would guess that’s a result of him shooting less threes, as he jacked up 4.8 per game last season. That’s not the case—he’s shooting even more this season, 6.1 per game! His scoring average is up to 20 points per game to go along with 5.5 assists, 2.2 threes, and 1.6 steals. Then you add in the modest turnover rate (2.3 per game) and you have yourself a Top 15 fantasy player. Good to see Young Money shed the sub-40 field goal clip and play like an All-Star. He deserves to be there this year. While we’re here, make sure Drew Gooden is not a free agent in your league.
