Every year, one or two first-year players exceed expectations during their rookie campaigns (see: Jennings, Brandon). Who’ll do so in ’10-11?
Which rookie will step up this season?
Tags: Brandon Jennings, Cole Aldrich, Eric Bledsoe, Larry Sanders, Paul George, Polladaday, Xavier Henry

I go with Eric B cuz the boy got the juice. Shouts out Rakim.
lol patrick patterson?
Like all these dudes, especially Cole.
can i vote Dominique Jones
James Anderson if hes healthy!
I gotta say Aldrich cause he should start right away at center for okc and he’s exactly the kind of banger/rebounder they need
Aldrich will definitely get good Playing time in OKC. and he should Feel kinda comfortable coming in since theres a lack of age difference between them guys. Everyone’s gonna watch him to see if he pushes okc a lil higher in the west. Well not like 20-10 stuff but just like caboose said;bangin bodies and crashin boards
Is Adam Morrison still eligible? If he is, don’t pick him!
I vote Patrick Patterson.
“See Jennings, Brandon”?? How about “see Gibson, Taj”? Brandon is obviously the better player and had some monster games, but Taj was way more consistent than Jennings and WAAAY less people expected Taj to have an impact in the L his first year. Just sayin’. As for this year, I’d really, really like to say Eric Bledsoe because I think he’s gonna be an outstanding pro, but not sure how many minutes he’ll get. So I’ma go with Cole Aldrich, cause I think he’ll play some decent minutes.
Paul George has the best opportunity to really shine I feel. Larry Sanders is one to watch out for as well, but I think Paul George is a young man who will have a starting position in this coming season
I voted for Gordon Hayward.
Mine is Samardo Samuels
