Kendall Marshall – LA Lakers
This point guard is already catching fire among LA Lakers collectors who are proclaiming “Kensanity” might occur in Los Angeles. He’s not quite as good of a shooter as Jeremy Lin is – but distributes the ball well. He still have autograph rookie cards from the 2012/13 release dates that sell for somewhat modest prices … but that are up from being bargain bin material since they’ve come out.

Paul George – Indiana Pacers
While not quite as hot as he was right at the beginning of the NBA season – he’s developed into a very solid player this season, and has his team near the top of the Eastern Conference standings.
Thaddeus Young – 76ers
Has been BEASTING since the start of the new year – and has people from around the NBA are taking notice of his game.
Bradley Beal – Washington Wizards
He’s making his way back from injury and just hasn’t picked up where he left off before he got hurt. His shots aren’t falling, and he’s not playing as many minuets. He could snap out of it at any moment, and any injury to John Wall or Trevor Ariza would immediately boost his production.
Kenneth Faried – Denver Nuggets
Has struggled most of the season & has been in -and- out of the starting lineup. Collectors have been high on him in the past, but won’t ever average enough points to make him a hobby darling again.
Kawhi Leonard – San Antonio Spurs
Was pretty hot during the 12/13 NBA playoffs, and might be a decent buy-low candidate as the Spurs will tighten up the rotation as we get deeper in the season .. but for now he’s merely a roll player while the Spurs spread the minuets around.
Andrew Bynum – Cleveland Cavaliers
If you ask one of the coaches wives – she might tell you that Bynum is HOT – but unfortunately for collectors his on-court game hasn’t been quite as good as his off-court game.
