Rookie Stat Leaders
Who do you think will be the rookie leader in all the stat catagories?
PPG: Curry (while shooting a low percentage)
APG: Jennings or Flynn
Im still determining blocks and steals.
PPG: Tyreke Evans
APG: Jonny Flynn
RPG: Blake Griffin
BPG: Jordan Hill if Lee leaves, otherwise Thabeet..i guess
SPG: Brandon Jennings if Sessions leave, otherwise Evans
PPG: Curry : He'll end up taking a lot of shots to get around 20 ppg.
APG: Jennings, if sessions leaves : If he uses a pass first mindset he should definetly rack up the assists.
If sessions stays, flynn.
RPG: I just cant see anyone other than Blake leading this catagory, but his teammated make take them from him
BPG: Thabeet, unfortunetly.
SPG: Jennings or Flynn : Both are quick and athletic and will help them get in the passing lanes to get steals.
Overall ROY pick:
why not Evans?
he will get the greatest chance becuase he will be the ball handler of the team
and the point guard.
blake will get his but it will be tough in his first year.
the las big man to win the award was Okafor in 04-05.
that wont change.
i see evans having a solid season because yea he may not really be a point guard but he is stronger than most and he can bully them.
Evans is my next pick, but if Jennings is the starter in Milwaukee, I expect a great season from him .
PPG: I see Evans, Curry, and Griffin all averaging 17-18, but I'll take Blake as the safest pick because Evans can't shoot and Nelson doesn't like giving rookies a lot of minutes(I hope Curry becomes an exception though).
RPG: Griffin should be pulling in about 9 per. Nobody's topping that.
APG: The pick here is Jennings. He's the best playmaker in this year's class (I like him even more than Rubio) and I think he played well enough in summer league that he'll get to start for the Bucks. Give him full starter minutes, he could get almost 7/game. I'll predict about 5.5. Doesn't seem like much, but only Rose surpassed that number last year.
BPG: Thabeet. Just give the guy 25-30 minutes and he'll get 2 per game. He's a better shot blocker than Brook Lopez.
SPG: Honestly, none of these guys stand out like Chalmers as guys that will get 1.5 or better a game. I'll go with Jennings based on summer league performance.
