View Full Version : Which rookie will have the biggest impact in the Playoffs?

04-15-2010, 06:37 AM
James Harden (OKC): opening round vs. Lakers

Ty Lawson (DEN): opening round vs. Utah

Wesley Matthews (UTA): opening round vs. Denver

Rodrigue Beaubois (DAL): opening round vs. San Antonio

DaJuan Blair (SAS): opening round vs. Dallas

Taj Gibson (CHI): opening round vs. Cleveland

Jeff Teague (ATL): opening round vs. Milwaukee

Brandon Jennings (MIL): opening round vs. Atlanta

Who you got? My top 3 is Jennings, Blair and a split between Lawson/Gibson

Jennings for sure will have the most impact
also it will be interesting to see how much will Beaubois & Blair play in the match up between 2 of the oldest teams in the league

I'd have to say:

1. Blair
2. Jennings
3. Harden

Matthews <3/

Total homer pick be he is so damn sexual

Ha no love for taj? Anywho give me Ty Lawson

Matthews <3/

Total homer pick be he is so damn sexual

I think Jennings cus my boy is the starting PG and has his hands on the ball as much as anyone on my team, next to John Salmons. Wes Matthews I always thought he was unrecognized as much as anyone in Marquette especially. He's from the Mil, so I have 2 root for him

Blair , Harden and Wesley.

Jennings and Harden have chances to propel themselves even further for the future. If Jennings explodes in the Bucks' series, then man, will there be alot more things said about him. If the Thunder manage to cause a storm and beat the Lakers, then alot will be down to Harden 'stopping' Kobe. And you gotta use 'stop' and Kobe lightly because its near impossible. But, anything can happen. I suppose all these rookies have a chance to change their series'

...look for Rodrigue Beaubois to come up big for the Mavs.

jennings without a doubt. with no bogut, he and salmons are the top 2 options.

How are people saying Gibson? Him and Harden will not make it out of the 1st round. In fact, their teams may not win a game

04-15-2010, 06:52 PM
not being a homer or anything, but i have a gut feeling that jennings will go off in the playoffs. the bucks won't make it out of the 1st round without bogut, but i believe jennings is gonna put on a show.

i also gotta rep my boy, wesley matthews as well.

Brandon Jennings and Wes Mathews.

Bucks are going to really depend on BJ if they have any chance on winning the series.

Mathews might be the most underrated rookie in this class. He's done a great job this season and has earned the trust of Sloan. The Jazz are going to need him to contain JR Smith and possibly do double shift on Melo with AK.

1. jennings
2. gibson
3 harden/matthews

Jennings. The is much more dependent on him than any other rookie. He actually starts, while the others are nice additions to their teams, but have star players to carry most of the load.
