ESPN: sophomore player rankings

1. Stephen Curry, Warriors
2. Brandon Jennings, Bucks
3. Serge Ibaka, Thunder
4. Wes Matthews, Trail Blazers
5. Taj Gibson, Bulls
6. Darren Collison, Pacers
7. Ty Lawson, Nuggets
8. Jrue Holiday, 76ers
9. Tyreke Evans, Kings
10. Jodie Meeks, 76ers
11. Reggie Williams, Warriors
12. DeJuan Blair, Spurs

13. DeMar DeRozan, Raptors
Many people are disappointed with the lack of real growth by DeRozan, especially after an excellent summer league run. But he has shown some promise in multiple games and is starting for an improving team. His 26 points on 13 shots in Orlando remains his current ceiling, and it's good to know he's capable of having a big game like that. Developing a 3-point shot is next on his shopping list.

Jeffy's thread title appears to be misleading. Although the article implies some players have been a dissapointment, the ordering of that list is the top 20 sophomore players, not the order of who is the most dissapointing. It would be fucking ridiculous to call Curry, Ibaka, and Matthews dissapointing. Ibaka is blocking 2+ shots a game. Curry is playing solid. Matthews has turned out to be one of the best steals of the offseason and is a big reason why Portland is still fighting for a playoff spot, despite all of their injuries.

Again, the list should be viewed as the order of the top 20 sophomore players, starting with the ones who have played the best so far this season. I don't think Jeff should have titled the thread that way.

That's a sophomore ranking. In that list only Tyreke Evans, Thabeet, DeRozan are disapointing regarding to their draft positions.

Ibaka, Matthews, Lawson are impressive.

Calling DeRozan a sophomore disappointment in regards to his draft position is going too far. DeRozan's statistics are comparative to Iguodala's during his second season (especially considering A.I. II played more minutes - and they were both drafted 9).

I doubt ESPN rated Iguodala a disappointment in 2005. I choose to chalk this up to David Thorpe's continued indifference to Toronto Raptors players.

not really. ppg and FT% are the only comparable statistics

05-06
37.6 Mpg 0.500 FG% 0.354 3% 0.754 FT% 5.9 RB 3.1 Assists 1.6 Steals 12.3 PPG

DD?
31.3 Mpg 0.457 FG% 0.118 3% 0.733 FT% 3.3 RB 1.7 Assists 0.7 Steals 12.4 PPG
