2010-11 Rookies Most Likely To…

Check our latest ish’s first-year player predictions.

by Ben Osborne / @bosborne17

One of the features in our jam-packed new issue is the annual Rookies Most Likely To… poll, which includes a bunch of people on the SLAM masthead voting on what we expect from this year’s new players.

One week into the season, and John Wall, DeMarcus Cousins and last year’s pick, Blake Griffin, all look great, while some others are showing flashes.

We’ve pasted in the magazine piece below for you to see the voting and read the comments.

What do you guys expect from this class?

    ben, you might wanna change “black griffin” to blake griffin

  • LeBron de Con

    Wes Johnson not even mentioned? Sheesh, you blew it.

    @Ryan Jones: You’re making it sound like John Wall is a lock, and everyone with two basketballs to rub together knows it. I feel the same way about Blake Griffin.

    daniel orton = obscure

    most likely be forgotten to be in this draft class by slam writers: Wesley Johnsson

  • ab40

    daniel orton has a weirder small head to big body ratio than dwight howard haha and that’s not a good thing. I think blake will get roy. once he figures some things out well there is only one thing he has to get his offensive rebounds and he’ll average a lot of rebounds and points.

    LOL, “Black Griffin.”

    As a voter, I am even a bit surprised by the John Wall-fest. I was a Blake Griffin guy for 20/10/ROY. I’m also gonna have to assume that there was some Blake-amnesia with my fellow voters.

    most likely to get into a brawl: blake griffin. oh and ROY too.

  • Hammer

    Most likely 2 win (and will win) the ROY: blake griffin. NO 1 ELSE NEED APPLY!

    I think a lot of people forgot just how dominating Blake Griffin was in college, I know I did. I didn’t remember how crazy his numbers were until his first game , then it hit me like a bolt of lightning.

    Who ever voted that Blake Griffin will fade into obscurity or hurt himself running laps is crazy.
