Hassan Makes BBL Team Of year

The wait is over as we reveal the eagerly anticipated Molten BBL Team of the Year for 2016-17 - as voted for by all clubs/coaches:


Rashad Hassan (London Lions)
The Lions' forward has cemented his status as one of the leading and most deadly forwards in the league with yet another staggeringly efficient and consistent season. Hassan was the third highest BBL Championship scorer and rebounder, with an excellent 19.7 points and 8.3 rebounds per game. He was also second in field-goal shooting with 62% from the floor.

Rahmon Fletcher (Esh Group Eagles Newcastle)
The 2015-16 BBL MVP has had another top-class season at Sports Central and once more proven to be a premier playmaker in the league. His outstanding displays have included being crowned MVP at the 2017 BBL Cup Final and taking the Eagles to the Play-Off Final at the 02. Fletcher averaged 20.5 points and 6.7 assists per game during BBL Championship action.

Taylor King (Leicester Riders)
Despite a slow start to the campaign, King really shifted up a gear and it was no coincidence that collided with a record-breaking and historic winning streak for Riders. He was deservedly crowned MVP at the BBL Trophy Final and integral to Leicester defending their league title with 12.7 points and 7.8 rebounds in the BBL Championship - as well as an often overlooked 2.65 assists per outing.

Kieron Achara (Glasgow Rocks)
The Great Britain favourite has had another sensational individual year for Glasgow with his supreme leadership qualities sitting nicely alongside some fine numbers. Achara led the BBL Championship in blocked shots with 1.7 per game and also weighed in with 15.3 points and 7.9 rebounds. The Rocks' star also completes a hat-trick, having made the Molten BBL All-British and All-Defensive Teams of the Year.

Maurice Walker (Worcester Wolves)
The BBL rookie has had an outstanding campaign despite not starting the season at Wolves. His size and quality in the paint has seen him prove too hot to handle for opposing defences. Walker almost inspired Wolves to the Play-Off Final with a typically colossal effort and harvested 18.9 points and 9.1 boards per game in the BBL Championship - finishing as the league's best rebounder.

Off the Bench - Brandon Clark (Leicester Riders), Cory Dixon (Plymouth Raiders) Earl Brown (Cheshire Phoenix), Deondre Parks (Esh Group Eagles Newcastle), Tyler Bernardini (Leicester Riders), Pierre Hampton (Leicester Riders), Jermel Kennedy (Worcester Wolves).
