It’s been a while since Andrei Kirilenko was a top 10 fantasy player as a member of the Jazz and the only threat in the league to have a 5×5 game but he’s still a great pick up for the Brooklyn Nets who signed Ak-47 to a 1 year $3.1 million deal.  This deal reunited AK with his former Jazz teammate Deron Williams.

Last season Nicolas Batum recorded the first 5×5 game since AK did it back in 2006.   AK also did it 2 other times which gave him 3 of the 5 instances the rare feat happened between 1996-2012.  It’s actually only been done 15 times since 1987 with 6 of those going to Hakeem.

Here’s the fantasy winning stat lines from AK’s three games

  • 2003: 19 points 5 rebounds 7 assists 5 blocks 8 steals
  • 2003: 10 points 12 rebounds 6 assists 5 blocks 6 steals
  • 2006: 14 points 8 rebounds 9 assists 7 blocks 6 steals

  • 2005: 15 points 14 rebounds 3 assists 10 blocks 3 steals
  • 2005: 18 points 16 rebounds 11 assists 4 blocks 3 steals
