    Predict Breakout Season

    So... who do you think will have a breakout season this year and take that leap from to

    Harrison Barnes?
    Ben McLemore?
    Tobias Harris?
    Tony Snell?

    Someone else?

    Ross is a good bet, I usually look at players in their 3rd year when trying to predict breakouts. I expect Drummond to take the leap, MKG, Terrence Jones and Jeremy lamb to all prove they are gonna be in this league a long time. I look at guys like Derrick Favors, Alec Burks, Enes Kanter, Brandon Knight and Iman Shumpert as all having borderline allstar potential, I am just waiting for some of those guys to prove it.

    I feel like I've been waiting for Favors to break out for a couple years now... big guys are slower at developing though, usually.

    It's funny because I did this list last year and Derrick Favors and Enes Kanter came up a lot. Lot of people correctly identified stand-out seasons from Demarcus Cousins and John Wall. This year is a little trickier.

    I think Jonas Valanciunas could take a big step forward. Then I like guys like Victor Oladipo, Tim Hardaway Jr., and somebody on the Bucks has to breakout at some point right?


    Kristaps Porzingis
    Stronger than most 15 year old girls.

    I don't think any four of those guys will break out. I wish Harris would, but I see much of the same for all-4.

    I think Bennett will improve upon his rookie year in huge ways.
    Giannis is always a good choice
    CJ McCollum
    I think Beal has so much room for improvement still
    Jeremy Lamb
    Beverley
    Hey what's up?!

    Drummond
    Anthony Davis- He should be a undisputed top 5 and probably #3 player next season
    Darren Collison
    Tony Snell
    Otto Porter?- somebody has to pick up the slack (and minutes) for Ariza leaving
    Bennett- will look alot better

    Hope it's Avery Bradley. He's slowly been getting better and better. Boston just signed him to 4 yrs 32 mil which could be a bargain if he can continue to improve.

    People still underrate him. They won't say nothing after he wins another one. I'm glad you at least know he had a breakout year.

    People still underrate him? Really?

    I mean, I guess the team effort by the Spurs might be the greatest I've seen in a finals, at least one of the greatest. So I can sort of get why people might underrate him by thinking it's unfair to single out one player.

    But still, any basketball fan worth his salt can see Leonard had a great year. Especially in the playoffs.
