Top Three Rookies With Most Impact For Playoff Bound Teams

So They are saying we are going to the playoffs........good to hear....and Derozan doing good is just a bonus.....

Quote:
Despite being one of the weakest drafts in the history of the NBA, a select few athletes out of the 2009 rookie class are undoubtedly bound to make an immediate impact for numerous playoff contending teams during the upcoming season.

1. DeMar DeRozan (SG/SF, TOR)

Turning 20 years old just two days ago, the high-flying DeRozan enters the '09-'10 with extremely high expectations.

With the ability to literally fly through the air, finish around the basket strong, defend multiple positions, and use his speed to his utmost advantage, the young gun is anticipated to begin the season at the SG position and promptly average consistent starters minutes.

If DeRozan can maintain his composure, produce at an efficient level, and translate his game to the NBA level, he will not only highly contribute to the Raptor's success, but also help the squad fight for a serious playoff run as well.

Since it is only offseason, only time can tell, but with DeRozan's impressive arsenal, it is too hard to not place him at number one.

"Despite being one of the weakest drafts in the history of the NBA", the ninth over-all selection is going to make this great an impact? People talk about him like he's the next sure-thing. If that were the case he'd have been taken higher than ninth.
I hope that people's expectations of DeRozan don't get too out of whack. He's only what, 20? 21? He needs to be allowed to develop at a realistic pace. They don't need to rush him.

remember a guy named kobe bryant?...he was picked 13th overall....Paul Pierce...10th overall.....you cant judge talent by which selection they are.....it all depends on how the team develops him....but i agree with you.....we should just let him develop at his own pace....because talent has been wasted because of teams not being patient *cough* *cough* *POB* *cough*

I'm not saying he can't become a great player. Kobe wasn't Kobe his rookie year. DeRozan's only a year removed from high school and he only played well for half a college season. That's like 15-20 games. The hype just needs to be dialled back.

read closely what this is talking about
it is talking about what rookie will have the most impact for a playoff bound team
first of all, most of the 1st to 8th picks are not playoff bound teams
second of all, it is talking about impact, it is not talking about the best player, demar has the best opportunity of all rookie to be able to have an impact for his team that is supposed to be a playoff team
