There are a handful of players that everyone knows will be great next year. Barring injury, the league's best players are no secret, and they never have been.
Nonetheless, every year, a few players who not many people thought about when the season started are on the minds of many as the season concludes.
When the 2011-12 season started, Ryan Anderson was a guy who had never played more than 23 minutes a game or averaged more than 11 points a game. He was entering his fourth season in the league and seemed like a nice player, but not one who would become fairly pivotal.
Anderson was on a team and paired with a coach and a player who happened to complement his skill set perfectly. That led to a breakout season in which Anderson was the second-leading scorer on the Orlando Magic and one of the best three-point marksmen in the NBA.
So, who's got next?
