A Newly Emerged NBA Fantasy Superstar

A Newly Emerged NBA Fantasy Superstar


A Newly Emerged NBA Fantasy Superstar

by Anthony Green

It happens on an annual basis, without fail. There are always a few NBA players who emerge during the course of the season, hitting the radar screens of every fantasy basketball GM as they break out.

Maybe you were eve watching them as they developed, before another manager in your league snagged them off the waiver wire. Wasn't that a bummer if that happened?

Who wins the crown in this category this year? As we're a bit less than halfway into the season at this point, we're beginning to get a clearer picture as to which players might be fly by night sensations, and which will be here to stay.

In my mind, it isn't much of a contest this season. I believe that Kevin Love has been the player to stand above the rest of the pack. His stats are invaluable to many fantasy teams in leagues around the world.

At center for the Timberwolves, there's Kevin Love. Not only is he one of the best rebounders in the NBA right now, averaging over 12.5 per game, but his scoring (15+) and his free throw percentage (80%) are both very impressive.

Any center who can shoot 80% from the line is magnificent in that category. A huge bonus that comes with owning Love is the fact that he's averaging over half a three pointer per game.

There are only a few centers in the NBA who shoot three pointers, and their contributions are invaluable to teams. One more great element of Love is the fact that he averages over a steal per game, also a rarity at the position.

No one believed that Love would have the impact that he currently does. He's been one of the most pleasant surprises in all of basketball, and gives fans of the Timberwolves in Minnesota something to look forward to.

As a result, quite a few lucky GMs around the fantasy world have enjoyed a huge boost from a pleasant surprise.
