NBA All-Rookie Teams Released

The NBA’s All-Rookie First and Second teams were unveiled today and are as follows:

NBA All-Rookie First Team:

Tyreke Evans, PG, Sacremento

Brandon Jennings, SG, Milwaukee

Stephen Curry, PG/SG, Golden State

Darren Collison, PG, New Orleans

Taj Gibson, PF, Chicago

NBA All-Rookie Second Team:

Marcus Thornton, SG, New Orleans

Dejuan Blair, PF/C, San Antonio

James Harden, SG, Oklahoma City

Johnny Flynn, PG, Minnesota

Jonas Jerebko, PF, Detroit

Since the All-Rookie teams are solely the top five players voted in, regardless of position, I would imagine an actual “team” with players at their real positions would be Evans at PG, Curry at SG, Jennings could fill in at SF, Gibson at PF, and Blair at center…

…I thought it was interesting that no true small forwards were voted onto either team, and point guards clearly dominated the draft class…The players I see with the highest ceiling out of these ten would have to be Brandon Jennings, Steph Curry, and two guys who didn’t put up staggering numbers but I think can improve with more minutes and a year of experience under their belts- Dejuan Blair and James Harden…If Harden can get into the comfort level that he had at Arizona State his sophomore year (20.1 ppg), then the Thunder are even scarier than at first glance…Blair was super-effective in the minutes that Popovich gave him this year for the Spurs, leading the league in offensive rebounds per 48 minutes and ranking 4th in total rebounds per 48; the biggest question is if Blair can consistently put up double-doubles with increase playing time…
