My rookie predictions for this season

 The draft is over and there were many suprises and trades in this weeks draft. Rather it was Minnesota picking three point guards, or Shaq going to play in Cleveland. This is about how I think these years draft class will turn out.

ROY: Blake Griffin - I love the Curry pick and I loved when Vitale said he will be rookie of the year, but Griffin will come out of the gates on fire. He will get his chance early and often and when you play with Baron Davis that just helps your cause even more (don't forget he was still a good passer last year).  Runner ups will be Curry, Henderson, Harden, and Evans

Most dissapointing: Johhny Flynn - I am not saying he is not a good player, I actually think he will be a solid starter but I think that the him and Rubio tag team will not work. One of them will probably play some shooting guard next year and will put them out of place and Flynn is the better scorer between the two so he will probably be put in this bad situation. Runner ups could be Thabeet, Rubio, and Holiday.

Most suprising: Gerald Henderson - Call me crazy but I think Henderson is going to be a very good pro. He will go to Charlotte and will become there go to guy. He won't be putting up twenty points a game but he will be scoring fifteen to seventeen in my mind and will blossom into a very good starter. Hill and Collison are also candidates.

Player who should have gone much higher: Patty Mills - This guy will turn out to be a player much in the mold of Tony Parker. He is quick, can get to the bucket and is a good passer. He was picked in the second round but after this season he will be looked at as a guy who should have been a top fifteen player. Other people who could be considered will be Blair and Ellington

The Anthony Randolph award: Brandon Jennings - This award is given to the player who will blossom late in the year. Jennings will start off the year struggling to adjust to the NBA game but he will adjust towards the last part of the season and will eventually be a player who Bucks fans can be confident in to be there star player for years to come. Hill and Clark are also up for this award.

Player that will have the best career (not named Griffin) :James Harden - He is going to be a all star in two or three years. Him and Durant will become on of the best tandems in the league. He has the all round game to get it done and will also be a great defender. He will also be the Thunders best passer on the court. Other people with bright futures are Curry (not being biased), Flynn (don't let this year fool you), Jennings, and Henderson.
