Poll: Rookies Most Likely To…

Posted by Neil Paine on June 25, 2010

One of my fave features in SLAM Magazine (at least, when I was a teenager -- not sure if they still do it) was the annual "Rookies Most Likely To..." column, where members of the incoming draft class were judged based on what they were the most likely to do. For instance, we would have said last year that Blake Griffin was the RMLT Average 20 Points (sorry, Clips fans!), or that Stephen Curry was the RMLT knock down 40% of his treys (done, with room to spare), or... well, you get the idea. So this year I want to put it to you, the reader: which rookies are the most likely to live up (or down) to each of these expectations?

    Great fun!

    I had to put "other" on the ROY vote... because of Blake Griffin.

  3. Slips Says:

    Ah, I remember those "most likely to" articles in SLAM. Good memories. But yeah, you should add blake griffin to the ROY list.

    Thanks, guys... Can't believe I forgot Blake Griffin!

  5. Frank Says:

    Voted "other" for RoY, banking on Tiago Splitter.

    1. I can't wait to see Blake Griffin in the pros.

    2. Didn't the Twolves already draft Wes Johnson in 07'?
