The playoffs is where greatness is made, where amazing things happen and where champions are made. That’s why we are ranking the very best the league has offered in the 2021 season. The Women’s Premier League is done and KPA are the champions. However, the Men’s season is still clouded with controversy and it’s unclear when we will have the finals scheduled.
Here at Th3 Dr-r, we are ranking the most notable players who made an impact in their respective teams in the playoffs. Our rankings are done by analytics and selection of various contributors. Here are some of the top basketball players in the country.

Honourable Mentions.

In this list, we have some players who we felt contributed to their team’s success but for one reason or the other we expected more. Others were hindered by injuries which cannot be avoided. They include: Jemimah Omondi, Kiyobe Chantal, Salma Akinyi, Valerie Kemunto, Hilda Ndegwa, Vilma Achieng and Christine Akinyi.

1: Natalie Akinyi
A five-time champion, Natty is still the best player in the postseason. She is a better point guard, a scorer who has shown over and over that she can also make her teammates better. Natty is considered as the finals MVP of the season. She averaged 13.2 points, 6.2 assists, 3.7 steals in the postseason.

2: Melissa Akinyi
Melissa Akinyi emerged as Equity Hawks leading markswoman. A great passer who can defend well. She averaged 12.5 points and 3.7 assists in the postseason making her one of the most valuable players in the Hawks roster.

3: Madina Okot
The youngster was a force in the playoffs and her numbers were unbelievably good. Madina averaged 10.7 points and 13.7 rebounds per game. She has a bright future ahead and we cannot wait to see what she will offer next season.

4: Samba Mjomba
The floor general sits at the fourth spot. Samba was solid for Equity Hawks. She controlled the pace of the game well, made plays for her squad and also scored. Samba averaged 11.5 Points, 5.5 rebounds, 3 steals and 3 assists.

5: Betty Kananu
The quiet assassin of Equity bank had a great postseason. Her performance in the finals was super. Averaging 12.2 points and 7.2 rebounds per game. Betty was making a case for herself to win MVP if Equity could have won.

6: Hilda Luvandwa
Hilda’s experience elevated KPA as a team. She adds to their firepower, and brings that much needed leadership and championship experience. Hilda Luvandwa still has more to give.

7: Debra Obunga
Debra took up the responsibility of putting Zetech Sparks on her shoulders and showed us why she is still one of the best guards in the Country.
