Breakout Player of the Year: Sandro Mamukelashvili

Although he's only been in San Antonio for a month, Sandro Mamukelashvili has played his way into the hearts of many Spurs fans, including myself. He showed flashes of potential during his time with the Wisconsin Herd in the G-League, and displayed them in a 17-game stretch for San Antonio, averaging 11 points and 7 rebounds. Some fans might argue that Mamu has benefitted from putting up good numbers on a bad team, but whenever he's on the court, he always finds a way to set up looks for himself and his teammates. He possesses a solid jumper from beyond the arc, can handle the ball well for a big, and makes great passes. Sound familiar? I'm not saying that Sandro Mamukelashvili is the second coming of Jokic, but he should be a great bench piece for the Spurs to have as they continue their rebuild. - Christian Dahms

Sandro Mamukelashvili seems to have a lot of people asking “Where did this guy come from?” And that, to me, makes him a true breakout player. While the Milwaukee Bucks seemingly didn’t have enough room to give him a chance, he’s really been able to show why he’s sticking in the league since being drafted out of Seton Hall. He has a hyper-advanced offensive game for a 6’11” big, showing three-point shooting chops, Manu-like playmaking ability, decent ball-handling skills, and more. If his defense can develop even slightly, he’s going to be a valuable rotation piece for years to come. - Roberto Araiza

MAMU. GINOBILI. Need I say more? - Oscar Barkis
