rookies sophs,players comming to earth and exceeding expectations

as we can see some players are now finding it harder to do what they were doing before

brandon jennings isnt hitting the same shots because defenses now have scouting reports and are taking away the things he likes to do. even so hes still playing pretty well and getting ast and wins here and there. eventually like all players he will adjust

oden had a monster game and just like wit jennings some of ya'll went crazy. hes now back to his normal self and is developing like he was before. needs work with a big man coach because right now his points just come from drive and dish dunks or very close to the rim. he is playing pretty well though. its some of his teammates that havn't really stepped up. mainly roy and his selfishness lately

lopez is still giving work to teams and players except this time his team actually got a win

blair his last game the other day was pretty good but before that he was with jennings hitting that rookie wall

evans- teams still havnt figured out how to stop this one. he has suprised me very very much and i must apologize to spencerhawes2 where ever he is because me and a coupel of other people really doubted he would be this good now or in the near future. the best part about evans is that he is leading them to wins

rose- glad to see him playing better but that team just sint as good as i thought they were. i expected more out of salmons. noah is playing well but other them him and rose and taj a lil im not to impressed. they really really miss gordan

To me, Evans should be the ROY. He is pretty much leading this Sac team. Although there not getting as many wins as Jennings, I say it's a tougher road for Evans and the numbers he's putting up are amazing at a position he new at.

No offense, but can you call

No offense, but can you call it a Rookie Wall when we're like 15-20 games in? haha. That usually happens to the major minute rookies around 30-40 games I think. Evans is startin' to steal it from Jennings...

Just like a couple of weeks

Just like a couple of weeks ago, its still way too soon to say who's gonna be the RotY. I think Evans cast is a little underrated, as Jason Thompson is developing into a legit NBA PF in his second year, and at some point could be a 20-10 player. He, like Oden has to cut down on some sloppy fouls, Thompson's more on the perimeter, but hes got a prototypical PF body with good athleticism and a nice skill set. Udrih is really benefiting from playing with a dominant ball handler in Evans, getting better shots and converting at a higher clip. Hawes is a solid center with a nice jumpshot, but the lack of depth inside really hurts them. The have some interesting talent at the SF position in Casspi and Greene. They have an interesting young team thats really played well despite the low expectations. Evans isn't a PG to me, but he's got a very good skillset for a SG. When he tightens up his handles and gets a consistent three pointer, he could be a top 5 SG in the league.

I have to disagree with you

I have to disagree with you about Oden. His play hasn't dropped off since the monster game vs Chicago. Other than the game vs Utah where he had 9 points and only 3 rebounds, Oden has played very well. Since the Chicago game he's had 18, 8 and 4 vs New Jersey... 13, 10 and 3 vs Memphis and 13, 20 (11 off) and 4 vs Miami. I think his development is ahead of where it was before. Tonight vs Houston will be their first game since playing Miami.

He also doesn't score most of his buckets off of drive and dish dunks, which is one of the problems. His team doesn't create any easy buckets for him. He's scoring his points off of free-throws, off rebounds and put backs and then a few isolation post plays. I do agree that he needs a big man's coach though, especially with Lucas having to leave the team due to cancer. He still needs work on his low post moves, but he's improved with his patience and making the right passes out of double teams.

After the double nickel and

After the double nickel and the series of 20+ games Quincy claimed he knew Jennings would do that all along, and now he's claiming that he knew the defense would adjust and take away his looks. Which is it Quincey?

Jennings will be fine. He's struggled shooting the ball over the last six games but he's still getting numbers and his team still has a winning record. The kid can't get 50 every game guys. He'll end the year at 17 and 7 and be the runaway rookie of the year, and I think he'll lead the Bucks into the post season.
