As the NBA offseason has set in for every team but the Celtics and Lakers, it seems appropriate to compile a list of unsung players who deserve more playing time in 2008-09:
Center—Andris Biedrins, Golden State
If you don't know him, know that you'll know his name come summertime, when he gets a monster contract.
Power Forward—LaMarcus Aldridge, Portland
If Greg Oden stays healthy, Aldridge will help the Blazers boast the best front court in basketball.
Small Forward—Gerald Wallace, Charlotte
There's a reason the Lakers/Kobe have struggled with the Bobcats the last couple years, that reason being Mr. Wallace.
Shooting Guard—Kevin Martin, Sacramento
The best 23-point-scorer you've hardly heard of.
Point Guard—Ramon Sessions, Milwaukee
His season started March 9, coming from the D-League. Sessions finished his last five games with at least 10 assists in every one of them, along with a 20-point, 24-assist night against one of the best defensive point guards in the league in Kirk Hinrich, topping it all off with a 25-point, 14-assist overtime finale in Minnesota.
