Molten BBL Team of the Year 2015-16 
Great Britain duo Drew Sullivan and Kieron Achara have amassed prestigious hat-tricks in this season’s end of season Molten BBL awards

The duo have emerged as big favourites in the voting by BBL coaches after being named in the Molten BBL Team of the Year for 2015-16 off the back of having already featured in both the Molten BBL All-Defensive Team and the Molten BBL All-British Team.

Sullivan has demonstrated his vast experience and talent with Leicester Riders in yet another highly fruitful and impressive campaign as he continues to try and propel his side to a super BBL treble. He averaged 12.7 points, 6.6 rebounds and 3.3 assists in the BBL Championship.


Achara has been magnificent for Glasgow Rocks all-season long and while not able to quite help his team punch a ticket to The O2, he enjoyed a wonderful campaign. He finished as the season leader for the most weekly All-Star Five appearances and accrued 14.7 points and 8.4 boards per game.

He also demonstrated some terrific perimeter shooting in knocking down a tremendous 41% from the perimeter, which was the league’s third best – along with 1.6 blocks per game.


Sullivan will step out for Sunday’s Molten BBL Play-Off Final alongside his Riders’ team-mate Neil Watson, who also makes the starting line-up.

The playmaker has been hugely influential and was particularly important down the season stretch, eventually emerging as the BBL Championship winners’ leading scorer with 15.2 points per game – helped by a majestic 60% shooting from the field. He also contributed a fine 4.6 assists and 1.6 steals per game.

Getting set to face both Sullivan and Watson in front of a huge crowd at The O2 and many more watching live via the BBC red button and online is Jerrold Brooks.

The Sheffield Sharks’ guard has been the driving force behind his team’s return to the season climax for the first time since 2011. He has also racked up multiple weekly All-Star Five appearances this season and showed his scoring and creative abilities.


He has recorded a highly productive 18.4 points and 4.8 assists per game and drawn rave reviews for his displays during an eye-catching first BBL season.

Completing our line-up is Rahmon Fletcher of Esh Group Eagles Newcastle who was again one of the premier players in the league during his second campaign on Tyneside.

The point guard was named MVP at the BBL Cup Final back in January and showed his quality during the BBL Championship season with 14.3 points and a dazzling 5.5 assists per game for the north-east side.
