Rookies vs Sophomores
What's up guys, I'm on your side today. Lets go Beasley!
Ok so Derrick Rose is not playing which kinda sucks for the NBA and TNT as he was the biggest draw among all the players stepping into the court tonight(top 5 in Jersey sales this year, DAMN). I'm not sure what the starting line ups are so I will go by best player at each position.
PG: Russel Westbrook. From the Oklahoma City Thunder. Quickest player on the court tonight. He's the best perimeter defender for both teams as well
SG: OJ Mayo. The young and hyped shooting guard from the most surprising breakout team of the season, the Memphis Grizzlies.
SF: Danilo Gallinari. From "NEEEWWW YOORRKK! The streets will make you feel brand new, the lights will inspire you!" ooops sorry got carried away there. Anyway, he's the best shooter on both teams(He's in the 3pt shoot out actually, yay) and can surprise you with some good fakes and drives to the basket.
C: Brook Lopez. He's tall but slow and kind of robotic/stiff. Needs to work on his game because I see a bright future ahead of him.
And at forward from Kansas State, MIIIIICCCHHHHAEEEELLL BEEEEASSSSSLLLEEEYYYYY!!!!!! Ambidextrous, can drive with both hands. Has an overall smooth looking game. When his shot is falling he's kinda unstoppable.
Now for the Rookies.
PG: Stephen Curry. The Sophomore starters were easy to predict. Rookies are a little tough. I'm sure people would argue with me for Jennings as the starter here though. I'm curious to see how the coaches go with it. And some might say Evans but I think he should be the SG, since the alternatives at SG are not as good as the point guards. Anyway, I love this player. I really wanted this guy, I love his game, his attitude, and his skillset.
SF: Omri Casspi: Who else?
PF: Taj Gibson. Wow the frontcourt players this draft sucked. They badly needed Griffin.
C: Dejuan Blair. Believe it or not he's the only center listed on the roster for the rookies and he's 6'7". I could see Jerebko starting but he's listed as a forward.
And at shooting Guard. TYREEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKKE EVANS!!!!YEAH! I love this guy. He's an amazing closer, has deceptive handles, great creativity, and is overall by far the best player in the draft.
Edit: Rookies will win this game because Westbrook and Mayo are ball hogs.
