Muslim Basketball's back for another exciting season! Last year we saw amazing talent week by week as the top players in the division played their hearts out trying to lead their teams to glory. These players went the extra mile for their team and without them on the court their teams would fall in shambles. The effect they have on the court can be seen through both what does and does not show up on the stat sheets; it's the little things they do that help fuel the fire of their teams. Through their leadership and great play, week in and week out, they hope to do everything in their power to elevate their teams to the next level. These aren't any ordinary players, these are MVP caliber type of players. Welcome to this week's edition of the KP MVP Ladder.

Final Evaluation of the Season heading into the Sweet 16!

5. Daniel Goldberg, Mombasa
A strong season for Daniel this year leading Mombasa to some crucial wins averaging 8.8 points, 16.4 boards, and 3.13 blocks on the season. Mombasa is a team that somehow always finds themselves back in the finals but they have been on a bit of a drought since the young Dhaka squad came to fruition and took over the league. Daniel's got to put the team on his back and play the way he's played all season long if Mombasa wants another shot after falling up short in the finals last season. Best big man in the league in my opinion and if Mombasa can find ways to get him involved they will have no trouble finding themselves deep in the competition.

4. Jon Dejesus, Lahore
What a season for Jon joining a team that not many had faith in coming into the season and turning them into an immediate championship contender. He finished the season averaging 20.7 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 3.1 assists. The stats don't even do justice to the impact Jon has had on this team through his energetic play and leadership and now Lahore is in a good position to make a nice postseason run. With Herb and Scott helping run the show this team can be a nightmare match up to play against especially in a high stakes win or go home playoff game.

3. Mujtaba John S, Jakarta
What can I say more than wow? He finished averaging 21.1 points on about 50% shooting from the field, 6.6 boards, and 3.3 assists on the season. The guy's stat page is like an excel file from all the numbers and the amount of seasons he's played in. Easily could have been in the conversation for the top spot on the list but missed a few games this season that didn't help. Mujtaba's got nothing left to prove in this league and is already on the Mount Rushmore of top players to ever play in the league. Fast forward to this weekend's matchup with Islamabad. This game is a must see as there is a deep history between Omar Abbassi and Mujtaba and this game will certainly be fun to watch. Congrats on another great season.

2. Aymen Abdelfatah, Suba
From zero to hero in one season. Aymen's gone from a bottom feeder team to a top 2 team in the league and he's been able to produce with the talent around him. Suba has been probably the biggest surprise of the season completely turning their team around and adding a whole new set of players. Aymen's impact on Suba was absolutely felt as he averaged 15.6 points and 9.6 rebounds on the season. Suba's got a lot of talent around him and if they can keep it rolling heading into the sweet 16 this weekend they're going to be hard to stop.

1. Patrick Jaramillo, Kazan
No in depth analysis needed, no this player was snubbed or that player deserved it more. This has been the easiest decision to make all season as Patrick, who's definitely the run away favorite for rookie of the year, is the league MVP for this season. From the 39 point game season debut to the game winner against Beirut to all the other records he's broken this season Patrick has had a season to remember. He finished the season averaging 23.8 points, 9.7 boards, and 2.9 assists. The scariest thing? His numbers could've been even higher if his free throw percentage improved a bit. Kazan is NOT a team you want to face in the playoffs as they've still got other weapons like Mark and Frank at their disposal. It's going to be fun watching them in the postseason, the sky's the limit so long as they play the way they've played all season long. Congrats to your new league MVP, Patrick Jaramillo Applause Applause Applause

Congrats to all the players mentioned and the others that could have easily been on this list.

Major props to Pat. Put on a show all season long.
