2010-11 Rookie Rankings

Below is my first rookie rankings for this season.  To qualify, the rookie must have played at least 100 minutes and must have been selected in this summer’s draft or must be named Blake Griffin (if you want me to include foreign newcomers, please mention in the comments, but I’m not going through every roster).

Anyway, I need to eat some major, major crow.  Let’s just put it this way.  Everyone I said would be good is either mediocre or outright sucks.  Most everyone I thought would be bad is doing well.   And at the top of the list is the surprise frontrunner, Landry Fields of the New York Knicks, who is having a great season. 

Oh, and Blake Griffin isn’t going to win MVP.  In my defense, you have to write something in October so the temptation is always there to take a little evidence and make a grandiose statement.  It burns me most everytime and I never learn.

John Wall is playing pretty well, and Derrick Favors, after a terrible preseason, looks very good.  Xavier Henry is, so far, really awful.

    This list of rookies is not complete, is it? For example, where is the Bulls’ Omer Asik?
