I have to go Sophmores b/c they're a little better and they have an advantage anyway.

Sophomores should win - with Ramon Sessions leading them at point and look for Joe Alexander on the rookie squad

Well, the Sophmores have won 6 in a row, but I just think that this rookie class is so DEEP that there are going to be a ton of good players left off, and I also think that the rookies are better from top to bottom. I also think the only starter on the Sophmore team that is goin to be better than the rookie playing the same position is Kevin Durant.

Beasley, Oden, Rose, Randolph and Mayo, Rose or Bayless at OG!!! The rookies are just loaded.

Thad young might make the sophs. And Stuckey might start.

But I'd go with the sophomores, just because of experience. Although the game is played after half a season... so time will tell.

The rookies have a really good chance this year at ending the sophomore streak. I'll take the rookies.

Rook.

But if you ask me, I think most of the 08 drafted players (Rose, Beasley, Love, etc...) will turn into busts and/or solid role players...

OJ Mayo seems to me like the only one that's going to blow up out of all of them. I've seen the way Beasley was playing in the Summer league, he can't do any of that against experienced and larger vets. They will send his stuff to the stands. Love will be nothing more than a energy guy coming off of the bench. Roy Hibbert will be a defensive player of the year, but his offensive game needs some serious work.

After '98 hit the NBA started losing its touch for producing mostly great players in the draft. I will say the 03 draft was pretty good, but only 3 players stand out from the bunch (King James, Wade, and Melo)...

I think the draft is going to get worse and worse... There will be one of those "2003" draft class years again, but there will never be 80s and 90s type of draft classes... Too many great players

I don't see how rookies have a chance esp. if people like Sessions, Stuckey, T. Young, Horford, Durant, Green, etc.
