2011-2012 All-United States Awards (Voted by All USA Sports Reporters) - May 4, 2012


POSTED BY:
EUROBASKET CENTER
  follow us on Facebook Twitter

Traditionally at the end of each year Usbasket announces the American awards for last year. So for the second time Usbasket would like to announce its 2011-2012 National Awards.

It's prepared by Usbasket.com staff. Usbasket has a network of almost 200 correspondents, while most of them are located in the United States and participated in preparing the ranking below.

We have the policy of not involving the fans as it may influence the final ranking and instead of that we rely on the opinions of experts.

All-United States category applies only to American Professional Basketball (not the NBA), but also these, who played overseas (mostly in NBA). The minor leagues were selected off of number of games, stats, players going overseas and overall talent.

Ahead of them all has to be the NBA D-League. The D-League by far has the most talent in the United States. Not only do they have the most talent they are branded by the brand (NBA). The D-League has sent over 20 players up to the NBA this season including 2011 Usbasket.com All-United States Player of the Year Othyus Jeffers and 2nd Team member Jeff Adrian.

The UBA continues to be the most impressive league of them all under the power houses. The UBA has sent over 80 players overseas in just 3 seasons. Not only do their players move on to the next level they all play well. Over 50% of the UBA players go to their mid-level countries and average the same numbers as they did in the UBA league.

The IBL and the PBL have to be two of the most entertaining and profitable leagues going in the United States. The PBL has the largest budget than all of the minor leagues and continue to add big talent. The IBL has been carried by power teams like the Los Angel es Lightning and ex NBA players like Bryon Russell and Toby Bailey.

The ABA is one of the longest running leagues in the minor league circuit. No doubt about it, it's the longest running US pro league in the USA.

The NBL Canada is th new league on the block but their carrying themselves like a true top notice league. Looke to be a future power.

This year, Justin Dentmon dominated the votes and was named Player of the Year award and also United States 1st Team.

The first team was dominated by NBA D-League players, with Non D-League selected just in the 2nd best team.

Best point guard of the year is Justin Dentmon. The D-League star had a terrific season with Austin Toros, leading the team to a 35-17 record. Dentmon led the Toros in assist this season with 5.9 and scored an impressive 22.6ppg. Dentmon was also named to the 2011 USA National Team. There is no question that he will be next in line for a call-up.

Shooting Guard of the Year is no surprise, Elijah Millsap. Millsap was called-up by the LA Lakers before returning to the Defenders. He finished the season an All-Star with an average of 19.6ppg and 6.5rpg.

In small forward position there is New Jersey Nets player Andre Emmett. This year, Emmett was one of the Dleagues top scorers with an average of 23.1ppg. The Texas Tech Star spent this season in the D-League with Reno Bighorns. He is currently playing in Lebanon for the playoffs.

Power forward of the year is one of the best athletes in the country: Brandon Costner. The Dleague All- Star was one of the key players of the LA Defender Championship run. Costner is currently averaging 19.6ppg and 6.0rpg.

Best center of the year is one of the biggest revelations of the previous season: Marcus Lewis. The big man had an impressive year with Tulsa 66ers averaging 15.6ppg and a league best 12.4rpg. He is by far the best big in the NBA-DLeague.

The best coach of the year has to be the surprise of the year, Travis McAvene. He was named USbasket.com All-UBA coach of the Year leading his Cincinnati Slam to a 19-1 record and sending 4 players overseas in just his first season in the UBA. McAvene has also been named to the USA National Team staff for the William Jones Cup in Taiwan this summer live o ESPN.
