Remember Joel Embiid will also be playing his rookie year next season

For me the top 3 rookies I'm looking forward to watching next season are

1. Jahlil Okafor
2. Emmanuel Mudiay
3. Kristaps Porzingis

Honorable Mention: Cameron Payne

What about you guys?

1. Porzingis
2. Porzingis
3. Dawson (our rookie who looks like a sleeper, yes I know homerish.. but he's averaging a double double and 3 blocks in SL).

Russell. (Homer pick cause I'm a Lakers fan).
Porzingas- I think he's gonna be a stud soon
Towns- cause he has Anthony Davis type like potential

These. Though I'm more interested in this crop then most. I'll be watching a lot of Winslow/Okafor and hope Embiid can get his *** on the court.

KAT because he's the best rookie with the best potential.

Now that I think about it, Cameron Payne would have to be my honorable mention.He was drafted 14th by the thunder. The 2nd best passer in the draft(only behind Russell, even though Payne had the best passing numbers of any prospect), great scorer, and absolutely dominated at a mid major school with an offense completely run through him. People didn't pay attention to him during the season because of his school, but his stock really shot up once the season ended.I think he has all star guard potential, I see a lot of Mike Conley and Jeff Teague in him... He has such a great feel for the game.

1. Hezonja - obviously, but you should be hype too!
2. Russell
3. Okafor

Embiid is two if he steps on the court. Hope he does. Excited for Porzingis, but I don't think he'll be too exciting this year.

Hejonza's definitely going to be fun too. It'll be interesting to see his ego get put in check by the elite and how he responds to that.

okafor
herzonja (my fave player in the draft, honestly)
russell

honorable:
mudiay - i wan't to see how his game translates from china to nba, still can't guage how good he really is.
porzingis - he would be higher, but don't know if he'll get the minutes to really showcase himself this season.

Mario's inflated ego is a myth, its just confidence in his game really. He's a team guy. I've been listening to him in interviews waiting for a sig worthy quote, but its not working lol. If you never read the scouting reports, you'd say he's quite humble actually. When he had a good game in summer league, first thing that came out of his mouth in the interview is that he wanted to thank his teammates for making him look good. When he had a not so good game he said he was terrible. Also talked about how he considers his teammates brothers on and off the court. He's respectful.



He was visibly caught off guard when asked if the Petrovic comparisons put undue pressure on him.

Hezonja paused and did his best to compose the answer just right. It was clear to see Petrovic is still an emotional trigger for Croatians.

“He was the best player in the world at the time, so of course it is good to hear that,” Hezonja said. “But I don’t like the comparison because it is disrespectful, so I don’t like it.”

Gotchya. Yeah, I'm definitely a mass-media receiver when it comes to his personality at this point. I've watched his youtubes and one full game, but he's on my watch list. His swag is real, though. And that will be put to the test very soon.

The top 3 and Winslow. Also Stanley Johnson and Mudiay.

I'd say porz but I don't think he will get a lot of minutes, or he'd struggle a lot this year
