convinced that Raptors fans are only happy when they're unhappy.

Default ESPN Rookie Rankings: Roko #19

I don't put too much stock into this, but I love how Roko is rated higher than some of the bigger named rookies out there right now.

Some of the names he's ranked higher than so far:

Greg Oden
Jerryd Bayless
J.J. Hickson
Danilo Gallinari
Marreese Speights
Robin Lopez

Nice. The funny thing is that some second round picks are rated higher then 1st rounders

kicking himself for being so emotionally invested in the Roller-coaster Raptors

Not that shocking though. There's always first round busts and project picks, and the second round often has some nice gems hidden away.

Carlos Boozer, Gilbert Arenas, Paul Millsap, Louis Williams, Manu Ginobili, Michael Redd, Ramon Sessions, Carl Landry, Luis Scola, Rashard Lewis, Matt Barnes, Marc Gasol, Ryan Gomes, Monta Ellis and Cuttino Mobley were all taken in the second round. You could pretty much build a championship team with second rounders. If you include undrafted players, the pool gets even bigger and better...


Edit: yes, I spent 10 minutes compiling that list.

He doesnt deserve to be. Hes barely averaging 2+2 and has been horrendous besides 1 qtr. Smitch should try and turn him loose once we play some shithole team like NJ or MIA at home and see what he can do. Hes killing the offence just trying to bring it up and not even being a threat out there.

yeah, I'm shocked he's in top 20, I guess the rest of the rookies must be really pathetic ...
