Most Improved Rookie?

Who is going to be the most improved rookie from the 2009 class?

Personally, I think it will be Joe Alexander. He will be starting at the SF and will probably be the 3 option for the Bucks. He and Jennings are going to be the only guys who can take their men off the dribble. Jennings, being so small, will not get that call much so I see Joe as that go to guy for "1 on 1" situations.

I also think that Anthony Randolf will show some strides in his game. I dont know if he can be great untill he is the number one option tho. He needs the ball in his hands to be successful.

Who are your most improved Rookies from the 2009 draft class??

Dhamp

Probably not the Knicks 2008 lottery pick. What a waste.

Dhamp = the new Hubie Brown....the name you can trust....Smoother than Doug Collins balding head.

Umm I see Rose taking a big

Umm I see Rose taking a big step forward, I also expect Speights to get more minutes and produce, DeAndre Jordan, Alexander as stated above and I think Brook Lopez will put up very good numbers without Carters 20 shots per game.

Mario Chalmers and Michael Beasley

Mario Chalmers is going to emerge as an elite defender at point guard and paired with his IQ and shooting touch look for him to become have one of the best sophmore seasons. Beasley is a pure scorer and was averaging close to 20 a game the last few weeks in the season when they started him, with O'Neal getting older Beasley is going to step in and drop a lot of points next season, and he is a pretty good offensive rebounder too as well as ambidextrous

There are so many Rookies

There are so many Rookies that will make the jump that I will say this if Randolph gets minutes he should make the biggest jump but Beastly will be close because Beastly should have average a lot his first year but did not get the minutes.

Man...I forgot about Brook

Man...I forgot about Brook Lopez. He is going to be a top 3 center in the East. Behind Howard, Shaq, and maybe Garnett or Wallace. Thats a big maybe there.

Dhamp i remember something

Dhamp i remember something you said about the Knicks and using Thomas scouting ability. Thomas gave the ok on Galinari before he left because he was already scouting dude.

The only thing about Beasley

The only thing about Beasley is that the Heat are trying to get both Boozer and Odom. IF that happens, he will come off the bench again.

Kevin Love

Kevin Love too, he's gonna get pt in Minnesota, and he had a pretty good rookie season, i think he'll average a double-double next season 14 and 10 or something like that, the first rookie in that class to average a double-double in my opinion, I think Lopez will improve his rebounding numbers but i don't think he'll jump from 8.1 to 10 plus next year

I agree Love will improve to

I agree Love will improve to about 14 and 10 or 11 put I think he won't get a whole lot better then that. i think his ceiling is about 16-17 and 12. Still very good numbers though.

Thomas didn't have the final

Thomas didn't have the final say. And this is the first time Dhamp has been called a hater.

Greg Oden will be improved.

Greg Oden will be improved. Bayless probably too since he will have more playing time.

Good Question...

There were alot of good rookies last year. One of the best classes ever, but the rookie that will take the biggest leap is...Derrick Rose. Call me a homer! He was already the Rookie of the Year, but he's gonna be regarded as one of the best PG's in the league this year. I know some people say that the departure of Ben Gordon might hurt him, but I think since he has one year under his belt and he works hard, he'll be ready. Anthony Randolph is gonna be better too. Looks like he put on some weight in the off season. Not so skinny anymore. Look out for Beasley, Eric Gordon, and Chalmers. A lot of good sophmores. As for this year's rookie class...That's another story.

Anthony Randolph is going to

Anthony Randolph is going to improve a lot with scoring and rebounds... he would average more but Beidrins is such a hog on the boards it'll be tough

"D-Hamp....your a idiot"
come on, it's you're not "your". also, it should be an not a. you don't have to use perfect grammar but at least use the right word. but you're right, he's an idiot.

because people get so used

because people get so used to it that they use in every day writing and people just get dumber and dumber. i can't tell you how many times i've seen the your-you're mistake in school and professional settings. that's why it matters.

gordon beasley bayless

i say eric gordon. he didnt even get a chance till january and since then hes been absolutely killin it

beasley too if he steps up his defense, the guy averages 14 a game on less than 25 min a game, imagine if he boosted that up to 40 min and actually had a role in the offense? this is of course if they dont sign boozer

and look for my personal favorite player from the 08 draft jerryd bayless to come up big if he can secure that starting PG role in portland

I'm biased, but I think

I'm biased, but I think Bayless should improve very much if he can get some PT..

Anthony Randolph looks to have bulked up a bit, and he has the talent to be an all star. With good minutes in the Warriors system he could put up huge numbers.

So does anyone think that

So does anyone think that maybe Bill Walker or JR Giddens will break the Celtics lineup and show some improvement. Or CDR. I'm think about some second rounders that were pretty good in college. What about the big man for Indiana, Hibbert (i know he was a first round), or maybe Kusta Kufos? Personaly I dont think but like 1 or two of these guys are going to be stand-outish.

Rose, Beasley, Oden,Chalmers

Rose, Beasley, Oden,Chalmers and Eric Gordon. These players all had good to very good rookie years with the exception of Oden (arguably). I look for these guys to all make big strides to become larger stars in the game. I have a big dislike for Gordon sinsc he jilted University of Illinois for Indiana, but he is a very good player.
