Not long ago, we here at PV (yes, it's "we" now) selected four NBA rookies to follow and root for. After one or two games for each, let's check in on them.
Sefolosha's goal is to become the greatest Swiss basketball player of all time. That, and getting his rookie card in the first pack of b-ball cards I bought this year, made him a player I wanted to follow.
Through two games, he may already be the greatest Swiss basketballer of all time. In game one he was 4-4 with 11 points, and in game two he was 5-7 with 13 points.
To Adam Morrison, the bench; from Adam Morrison, 14 points in his debut.
While this former Bruin is too good to allow his photo to appear on ESPN's player profile, he is also good enough to be getting 19.5 minutes per game through two weeks. He's already on the court for crucial minutes; he will be the Lakers' best PG by the time April comes along (he already is their best point guard, but everybody will know it by then).
Kevin McHale clearly has complete contempt for first round picks. He will either trade them away for squat, lose them as punishment for cheating, draft lousy players, or draft players that the T-Wolves will then not play. Foye's debut? 6 minutes, 0 points, 0 rebounds, 0 assists, 0 steals, 0 blocks, 0 turnovers. Of course, the guy the Wolves drafted and traded for Foye debuted with 20 points. Of course.
