Put Bennett in. Nobody plays defense, he would fit right in.

they should probably just make it a game between sophomores and juniors this year. it's that embarrassing.

Rookies are gonna get merked this year. Timmy will shine though.

I thought they combined the rookies and sophomores and did a draft?

^Yeah, it's not rookie vs sophs, so the people above are wrong about it being a slaughter.

But they draft from a pre-selected pool of players, which going by last year should be announced some time this week. They don't really say how they select it, but I'm guessing they want at least a similar amount of each, so there could be some bad rookies in there.

Ross is on his way, he should follow in the footsteps of Derozan...Bennett is the next Kwame

Davis was playing like an MVP in the beginning of the season, now he slows down and behaves like a sophomore. Too bad he gets hurt often

Anyone here want to see a Rookie vs Sophmore Match, just to see how badly the rookies this year lose?

How exactly has he slowed down? he just had 30/7/8 game and is ave 20-10-3 with a PER of 26. He also only missed a handful of games.

A few days ago he was averaging around 16 pts

There were 10 or 11 players on each team last year, so I'll pick the top 20 first- and second-year players.
PG - Damian Lillard, Michael Carter-Williams, Trey Burke, Kendall Marshall
SG - Bradley Beal, Victor Oladipo, Ben McLemore, Dion Waiters, Tony Wroten
SF - Harrison Barnes, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Khris Middleton, Jeremy Lamb, Terrence Ross
PF - John Henson, Terrence Jones, Thomas Robinson
C - Andre Drummond, Miles Plumlee Jared Sullinger

The rookies must be thrilled they don't have to go against the sophomores this year. It would be the most one-sided All-Star basketball game ever.

I liked the RvsS format better.

If they ran that format the rookies would get murdered :laugh2:

No jeremy lamb? I'd take him over ross. Same stats in less minutes.

^Ross isn't in there, though. That's Terrence Jones.

Lamb has been decent enough that it wouldn't have been a surprise if he made it, but I'm not sure there's an argument that there's anyone he should've definitely gone ahead of.
