Player of the Post-Season

Who was your Most Valuable Player of the Wildcats entire post-season?

Bryce Cotton was rightly named Grand Final MVP after a stunning series which featured the greatest NBL Grand Final performance of all-time.

But, both the Semi-Finals and Grand Final were littered with memorable performances from Perth players.

After all, it takes a team of guys playing their roles to go undefeated in the NBL Finals.

For example, what about Jesse Wagstaff’s five three-pointers in Game Two of the semis against Cairns?

Or Jameel McKay’s turning-point patches in the third quarter in Game One AND Game Two of the Grand Final – including nine rebounds in six minutes of basketball in Illawarra.

Matt Knight’s Grand Final Series-opener was outstanding, finishing with a double-double 18 points and 11 rebounds, while fellow big man Angus Brandt followed in his footsteps with a double-double of his own in Game Two.

Damian Martin’s disruption created countless opportunities for his team and, in Game Two of the big dance, for himself – knocking down four of five clutch three-pointers.

Jarrod Kenny was also outstanding across the series and Cotton’s heroics in Semi-Final Game One and Grand Final Game Three were undeniably incredible.

You could name the whole team!

However, across all five NBL Finals games, it is easiest to make the argument that Casey Prather was the Wildcats most influential player.

He averaged 20.6 points, 5.6 rebounds and 3.8 assists per game in the NBL Finals, and was probably  in the Wildcats best two players in each game.
