As a sports fan I enjoy thinking and discussing about the future of young rookies and what can be......


Why? If you have a top rookie or high draft pick, it means your team sucks balls a majority of the time. I'm fine with not having a rookie to watch play for a s**tty team
yeah I hear what you're saying, but what can I say there is just something exciting about getting a highly touted player... I remember getting Kobe in 96' man that was nice... Seeing him struggle then become the player that is now... Its just awesome.. Being a Lakers fan you rarely get to see a young player come up through the organization.

I understand
Bynum lol
Interesting prospect out of France. Frail as s**t, but he's still just 20 years old. He's 7'2" with a 7'9" wingspan () and what I really like about him is that he's VERY agile for his size. Most guys his size are awkward and lumbering. He has quick feet and reaction time. Every time I read about him at an all-star camp, everyone talks about how he completely shuts down the paint.

7'9" wingspan. Jesus christ lol



How has he not been drafted already?

Hasn't made himself eligible. Probably will this year.

Don't know if I've ever seen such two-way ownage from one guy to another.

Jazz has a young but ridiculously talented roster. They will be fun to watch this year.
