NBA Rookie Report


1. Derrick Rose- 16.7 PPG, 6.3 APG, 3.5 RPG, .457 FG%, .787 FT%, .278 3PT%

Rose is still leading all rookies with his 6+ APG, which leads rookies, and is still second on his team in PPG, behind only Ben Gordon. Rose also leads all  starters on the Bulls in FG%.

2. O.J. Mayo-  19.1 PPG, 2.8 APG, 4.0 RPG, .443 FG%, .869 FT%, .379 3PT%

Mayo is blowing out all rookies in PPG, while staying up there in FT%, and 3PT%. O.J. leads the Grizzlies in FT% and PPG. However, he leads all rookies in MPG, which ups his stats a little.

3. Russell Westbrook- 14.4 PPG, 4.8 APG, 4.3 RPG, .411 FG%, .800 FT%, .333 3PT% Westbrook continue to hit from deep. he continues to amaze me with his shooting skills. He is a young leader on a young team, and is slowly but surely becoming a 5 tool player: penetrating, shooting, passing, rebounding, and defense. The one thing he needs to work on is defense, which average, at best.

4. Brook Lopez- 11.5 PPG, 0.7 APG, 7.8 RPG, .489 FG%, .822 FT%, .000 3PT% The Lopez of the Nets is outperforming his twin on the Suns by a landslide, stepping up on a team full of stars. I’m sure that, soon, he will be a double- double average guy. Oh, and, one thing the stats recorded don’t show is his defense: he averages 1.9 BPG.

5. Michael Beasley- 13.3 PPG, 0.9 APG, 5.3 RPG, .449 FG%, .750 FT%, .356 3PT% You knew that he would be in here, didn’t you. Although, I almost put some people such as Greg Oden or Kevin Love in above him, but I felt a little sympathy for him because he hasn’t exactly lived up to his premature expectations.

On the Verge:

Greg Oden, Kevin Love, Rudy Fernadez, Marc Gasol, Maureese Speights.

That’s all I have for you.

Thanks for reading!

  1. Oden and Fernandez would have better numbers if the Blazers weren’t 12 deep. Also, Oden and Fernandez’s team have the best record of any of the other rookies mentioned in that article.

    Lopez is going to be a solid NBA player for years to come.

    Love is overrated.

    Still a good report.
