"5 And 5" Star Rated Players for 2011 NBA Playoff Fantasy

There are only 4 players out of the 287 in our NBA playoff pool that have both 5-star position ratings and 5-star ratings on their team using our default scoring system.  Here they are:

1. LeBron James F MIA
2. Derrick Rose G CHI
3. Dwight Howard C ORL
4. Kevin Durant F OKC

Indeed, there are some notable names that are missing.  Kobe is not on the list because he is only slightly ahead of Pau Gasol and there are other strong fantasy options on the Lakers in Odom and Bynum.  Wade didn't make it because of LeBron's out of this world fantasy numbers.

If you want to learn more about these rating systems, see the Fantasy Drafting and Relative Value Ratings post.
