Care to explain? (Not disagreeing with your choice in Irving, just curious.)

Re: Players that appear to be breaking out

It's been awesome having Paul George on my fantasy team! Bledsoe, Vucevic, and Raymond Felton? He was almost a nobody last year and hes having a great season (before his injury of course)

He had a really good rookie year, but this year he's taken a rather large step forward. He's not a "breakout" player in the traditional sense because he's always been good, but I felt obligated to show him some love. Tristan Thompson too.

A mix of crying and insulting would ensue.

Re: Players that appear to be breaking out

The obvious ones for me are:

Vucevic,ORL. He's been a beast and really showed why Philly was high on him.
Ibaka,OKC. We all saw the potential and he's been blocking shots for awhile but after Harden's departure Ibaka has steppedit up. 15ppg with something like 53% from the field and around 80% from the line. Great numbers(plus 3 blocks)
Thompson,CLE. Has really benefited from Varejao being out.
Mayo, DAL. Finally got a consistent starting position and has ran with it. Remains to be seen if he can do with another player in the lineup.
Reddick, ORL. Not sure if it constitutes a break out, but he is having a great year.
B.Lopez, Brooklyn(what abbreviation do they use, BRK?). Nice come back season so far. 2+ blocks, around 8 rpg I think.
R.Lopez, NOH. He has had some really nice games. If he can ever become consistent he will be a quality C in the NBA.
Vasquez, NOH. He showed last year that he was capable. This year he took it to a new level. He is a very well rounded PG. And is turning into a great move(they traded quincy pointdexter for him)

Some others that I don't know if they really count as breakout: Cousins, Melo, Irving, Crawford(either really),Harden. All of whom were either obvious progression(Irving), playing below their level(Cousins), already a superstar(Melo), or just got more opportunities(Harden,Crawford)

Okay I can definitely respect that, I did expect him to improve this season but not by this much. He's been incredible so far for only his second year.

I'm shocked it happened...Hopefully it won't change when Rose gets back.

Re: Players that appear to be breaking out

James Harden, Paul George, Nikola Vucevic, Larry Sanders and Greivis Vasquez are my top picks. Tristan Thompson appears to be putting it together too. You can tell that Eric Bledsoe has it, but obviously can't fully "break out" playing behind Chris Paul. Kemba Walker is a much better player this year too. DeMarcus Cousins has put up crazy stats since coming back from his last suspension.

Greivis is tough...If Bledsoe could get any kind of shot he would be tough.
