david thorpes rookie rankings
been looking for a while and finally found them
reactions and thoughts?...
my boy Tyreke the Freak is gonna be a star!
im a kings fan too we got much from love reeke at 2 to casspi at 19 but i hope ur not basing ur opinions off this list
I know this thought won't make me popular with a lot of the posters.... but I think Evans will put up good numbers this year only because he is on a bad team. I don't think he is going to be the All-Star a lot of people are making him out to be. I think he will struggle at the PG position and they will move him to SG.
Jennings I'm unsure on right now, the talents their... but can he stay focused with the Bucks, will he get discouraged if he runs into trouble early on? This season we will see if he has the maturity to become a star in the NBA.
I think Harden will be given plenty of time to show case his talents, but may hit a rookie wall midway through the season.
He rated Teague pretty high for a guy we didn't get to see play any, I don't think he will be that much of a factor next season.
I hope Curry succeeds in the NBA, but I'm not sold yet he could go either way.
Same with Collison like Thorpe mentions, he won't see much playing time at all behind CP3 so I don't see why he rated him in the top 15 being that one of his major factors was how much playing time the rookies would get to show their talent next season.
I could be wrong about Carroll but I think he will be one of those high energy guys who will make his career as a guy who comes off the bench and plays hard for 10 minutes a game, makes a few highlight plays but is never in there in the crunch time.
As for his thoughts on Blair... I'm still not sold on him. I'm not surprised he was able to push around and bully the guys at summer league, we already knew he would be the strongest guy there. I want to see him up against more physical vets before I make my call as Blair relies on his strength so much.
Carroll is the reincarnation of Renaldo Balkman, I think he will be the same type of player, Carroll, despite awkward mechanics, has a little more offense, so maybe a little more scoring
DeRozan a bigger Courtney Lee? I must disagree, DeRozan seems to have a better mid range game and makes better decisions than Lee. Not to mention DeRozan's athleticism is off the charts.
What? Oh man... I thought I saw bad comparisons...this is bad dawg... Courtney Lee, to me, has always been a ballhog...since his days at Western Kentucky... Demar's potential is so unbelievable that I think it will be an insult to most people that he got compared to Courtney Cox, i mean, Lee... The athleticism of Derozan is way better than Lee's...
