Rookie rantings

The NBA, at least to me, is by far the most difficult professional sports league to judge which players will make it and which won't.

Take Paul Millsap for example. I figured his rebounding would warrant him a roster spot. I never figured he would have the impact he has had on the Utah Jazz this season.

On the other hand, I could have seen Tyrus Thomas being a bust. His college career was strikingly similar to Stromile Swift. But it appears now that Thomas is on a better career track than Swift.

That's two rookies from Louisiana schools. Both are doing well. And me, call me surprised.
