So nobody knows the players on their team like the fans. Who are some players on your team that the rest of PSD might not know much about, that you would like to give props to. Basically, who is the unsung hero of your team?

Alexey Shved for the Timberwolves.

A 23 year old undrafted rookie who signed a 3 year deal in free agency. He has a lot of flair. Along with Kirilenko, he helped lead Russia to their bronze medal placing in the Olympics. He has PG passing ability, and can be really aggressive on offense. He got off to a slow start shooting this season, but, since being inserted into the starting lineup, he is shooting 39% from 3, and is averaging 10 points and 8 assists from the SG position. He recorded his first double double last night against OKC with 12 points and 12 assists...also had 7 boards in that game.

I like the thread idea.

For the Raps, here's the names I'd throw in the hat:

Alan Anderson: Called up from the D-League last year, got a contract. Hits threes, plays pretty good D and plays a good team game. Fills in the gap at the 3 where we sorely need production.

Amir Johnson: Does all the things that don't show up on the stat sheet. Plays with tons of heart, plays within himself and hustles. Reps Toronto hard.

Ed Davis: Many fans were calling for a breakout year for him, many were suggesting that he'd be a good throw-in for a potential trade with Jose for youth and contract value. He's been defending/blocking shots like crazy, added way more to his offensive game and plays bigger than his frame. Developing more this year than he did in the last couple years put together.

Andre Drummond. Obviously people know him, but they might not know how good he has been.

He is the Pistons best player when hes on the court.

He plays around 19 MPG. He should be starting and playing at least 30 MPG. He averages close to 13 points, 13 rebounds, 3 blocks per 36 minutes.

I doubt they knew (especially after a horrible rookie season), how well he has played this season, I doubt you knew that he was shooting the ball so well, or that he is ranked 25th in PER and 25th in TS%

So don't try to rain on my parade BIIATCH!

Marco Bellinelli, Jimmy Butler, and Nate Robinson. Marco has for the most part played very well since Rip got injured. Jimmy has brought some toughness off the bench, playing the Ronnie Brewer role from last year. Nate has been a spark off the bench for an ineffective Kirk Hinrich.

Offense - Jason Kidd's BBall IQ and intangibles are the reason the team is able to score so efficiently. We're a vastly different team on nights he does not play.

Defense - Rasheed Wallace is arguably the best interior defender on the team. Tyson has a tendency to fall asleep for stretches in games but Sheed locks down the paint and grabs the important boards whenever we need big stops.

Good info, guys!! Most of us in Houston can't watch the games this year unless they are shown on TNT or ESPN, but from what I have seen, really like Greg Smith. He plays hard, and is a solid inside player. I don't think anyone expected him to be in the rotation this year, but h had outplayed all the rookies who were much more hyped.

It's Jodie Meeks for you guys actually. Over the past couple weeks since he's seen minutes he's been the only spark you have off the bench.

For the Warriors it's Carl Landry. 13 and 7 with a PER of 20, WS/48 at .200, Offensive rating of 122 and a TS% of .637. Elite numbers and elite play from the guy I consider the 3rd most important player on the Warriors to this point.

The Knicks acquired two players this year that most people don't know much about and they are turning out to be surprisingly good. Chris Copeland and Pablo Prigioni.

Chris Copeland has been riding the bench 95% off the time and he's played basically garbage minutes in blowout games, but when Carmelo Anthony was injured the other day he was put into the game as a starter to replace him and put up 29 points. Since then he has received more playing time and has played rather well. He's a bit of a journeyman that played overseas for a while and is making the most of his shot in the NBA.

Pablo Prigioni aka "The Maestro" is officially the NBA's oldest rookie at the age of 35. The Knicks signed him to a 1 year deal as a 3rd string point guard and he's been phenomenal. Extremely high basketball IQ and amazing court vision. Pablo has a nice shot and nails a 3 once in a while but doesn't look to shoot much. He's a pass first point guard and his teamates on the court love playing with him for that very reason. He's also deceptively faster then he looks and has quick hands on defense. I can't think of a single game this year when he hasn't made a few steals with his limited minutes. The opposing announcers always call him a pest. Although he's technically a rookie in the NBA he's an extremely accomplished player overseas.

That TV thing is messed up. I was surprised when Smith went undrafted. He seemed like a little bit of a project but a cheap one at that.

What is the deal with Royce White? Haven't heard anything about him in a good while.

Jodie Meeks for us. With Mike Brown he wasn't doing anything. Brown actually didn't play him some games. But props to D'antoni for giving this kid some run.

I'd say Jordan Hill is another guy when healthy.

It is still pretty confusing. He is not on the active roster yet. None of the 3 rookies are playing, but White just seems like a headcase so far. I suffer from pretty bad anxiety as well, but his problems go beyond that. He seems immature.
