SportStock is a mobile app in which you can buy and sell stock from current NBA players. The players stock rises and falls based on how the player performs in real life.
The NBA playoffs have begun. Players all over the league are stepping up big time for their respective teams. Generally speaking, when a player’s production goes up so does their stock. Without further ado, here are three players whose stock values have been rapidly shooting up.
1. Jrue Holiday
Current Value: $204.40
Jrue Holiday has been shocking the league as of late. Holiday did a superb job of locking up all-star Damian Lillard while also scoring buckets on the other end for his team. In the first round, Holiday averaged 27.8 points on 56.8 percent shooting while also dishing out 6.5 assists per game. Meanwhile, he held Lillard to only 18.5 points per game on 35% shooting. Holiday was a force to be reckoned with during the Pelicans four-game route of the Portland Trailblazers.
2. Derrick Rose
Current Value: $68.68
Derrick Rose has been mostly a disappointment this season, hence why his stock value is so low. However, Rose has been stepping it up big time in the post-season. After averaging only 8.4 points per game in the regular season, Rose is now putting up 14 points per playoff game. This jump in scoring has brought life back into Rose’s longtime supporters and has also bumped his stock value up. Rose is looking like a valuable member of the Minnesota Timberwolves and his share price is reflecting it.
3. Donovan Mitchell
Current Value: $132.04
Rookie sensation Donovan Mitchell has been making noise so far in this year’s playoffs. Mitchell has put the Utah Jazz on his back and led his team in a competitive first-round series. Mitchell has scored more points than any other shooting guard in NBA history through his first three playoff games. His play on both ends of the floor has been pivotal for his Jazz team through this series. Mitchell is averaging 25.7 points, 9.0 rebounds, and 1.7 steals per game. While he may not win the Rookie of the Year Award, his stock is certainly increasing.
