NBA Rookie Report Season Review: Part One
by: Eric Weiss - Sports Aptitude
May 5, 2006
With the season finally at its conclusion, and the NBA All-Rookie team released, letís take a look back at the rookie class from this year and see how they faired. The parts written in italics were written before the season began in our Rookie Preview. Below each preseason rookie analysis will be an evaluation of how accurate our assessment was of each playerís role and anticipated success. At the end of the review weíll do a tally to see how close we were in each category to predicting all the playersí respective impacts.

For the sake of analysis, we will take the season totals of every player for the games in which they played 24 minutes or more to get a better sense of what his potential may be. Per 48 minute stats are often skewed by limited playing time, so looking at the games in which a player actually logged significant playing time seems like a more accurate indicator of his ability to impact a game when given the chance. Obviously the less games a player got to play big minutes the less reliable the averages are, but since all of these players have only a single year of experience it should serve as a decent enough indicator for our purposes as it can serve as a baseline for improvement next season.

Part Two: Sneaky Sleepers

NBA T-Mobile All-Rookie Team

[lfont]Draft Express Rookie Radar


The rookie class has been broken down into four categories: [b]First Year/Fast Track
, Back-Burner/Bench Warmers, Sneaky Sleepers and Top Secret Big Men. The first group is all players that are expected to contribute rotation minutes this season--roughly 15 minutes and up. In the second group we have some talented players who may not start off with minutes, but who could catch the attention of their team before the year is through. The third group consists of players that may find playing time difficult due to depth chart and personal development issues. The fourth group is simply lesser heralded big men that showed tremendous upside in Summer League or other venues and earned contracts for their efforts. All groups will be well covered this season and their placement on either list can change based of a myriad of circumstances that may vary over the course of this upcoming NBA season. Iíve starred the players I feel will be the ten best overall, though it may take 2 or 3 seasons for some of them to develop.

First year/Fast Track:

Ike Diogu- The Warriors frontcourt rotation is short on depth and experience. Dioguís toughness on the interior is a solid compliment to Troy Murphyís outside game and the two could find themselves on the court together if/when coach Mike Montgomery decides to go small. Ike will have to improve defensively, but heís got a solid interior game, a nice jump shot and heíll rebound on both sides of the court. Diogu will bang down low and help draw attention away from the Warriors superior perimeter attack. An unfortunate injury early in training camp has set him back somewhat early on, but Ike should bounce back strong enough.

Final Analysis- 15 games over 24mpg: 14.33ppg 7rpg .524fg% .810ft%
In the limited number of times that coach Montgomery actually went to Diogu, Ike did exactly what we thought he could do. Diogu was a beast on the offensive glass and scored very effectively on the interior and the face-up jumper. Team politics kept Diogu from getting more playing time earlier in the season, but the Warriors know what they have and it looks as if Diogu has the inside track on some real rotation run going into next season. Preseason Analysis: Accurate

Deron Williams- Iím still not sold on Williams as a top flight point guard. Still, he has the backing of coach Sloan and will have plenty of competent players around him to take the pressure off. I expect Williams to defend well and get the offense set, but I question the rest of his game early on in his NBA career. If the attitude and work ethic is there he should make himself into a decent enough shooter to help space the floor for Boozer, Harpring, and Kirilenko.

Final Analysis- 63 games over 24mpg: 12.2ppg 5apg, .421fg% .416 3pt%
Early in the season Williams played much better than anticipated, making me second guess my initial analysis. He fell off during the middle of the season which made me feel more certain of my initial impressions. But, Williams really turned it on during Utahís late season push and showed what heís capable of going into next season. So while the overall consistency wasnít there to make Williams a sure-fire impact player next season, heís shown quite enough for the Jazz to be optimistic.
Preseason Analysis: mixed

Martell Webster- Webster has a chance to get some solid rotation minutes this season due to the Blazerís youth movement. Great size and top-notch intelligence make him a contender for time in the rotation. There will be a lot of jockeying for position in Portlandís training camp at both the 1 and the 2, but I think Webster will come out with a role on this team, even if only to somewhat justify his lofty spot in the draft. Websterís probably the only pure shooter the Blazers have besides new signee Steve Blake and the streaky and inconsistent Juan Dixon.

Final Analysis- 15 games over 24mpg: 12.9ppg, .357 3pt% .849ft%
Webster was predictably slow coming out of the gate, but a small jaunt down in the D-League was all it took to get Webster into a groove and from there he earned himself a spot in the rotation and started to blossom as the dead-eye shooter he will eventually be known as. Webster has a ton of things to work on to be a complete player, but his strong late season showing proved that heíll be able to score on this level, which is a great place to start. Preseason Analysis: accurate


Rashad McCants- Iím only putting him in this position because of his status as a North Carolina lottery pick. McCants will have to be more than just a shooter to get time at the 2 in Minnesota, and that has already been subtly implied by TíWolves coach Dwayne Casey. McCants can score, but so can Troy Hudson and Wally Szczerbiak, while Trenton Hassel has proven to be a solid defensive presence. With the addition of Marko Jaric, McCants will have to shine early and show solid shot selection or Kevin Garnett will quickly tire of him.[/lfont]

Final Analysis- 22 games over 24mpg: 14.9ppg, .372 3pt%
McCants performed according to expectation. His scoring ability wasnít ever in question, nor was his ability to shoot from the perimeter. McCants did show solid efficiency with his overall shooting, hitting 45% of his shots from the field. But, McCants needs to show more explosive scoring capability, something he showed a bit of during the final weeks of the season. So, no surprises from McCants and certainly nothing to warrant such a high pick when so many other impact rookies were still available.
Preseason Analysis: accurate

*Chris Paul- My frontrunner for ROY for many reasons. Paul will get plenty of time on a young Hornets team. Heís got great playmaking skills, keeping his head up as he surveys and attacks. Paul can shoot well and is quick and strong with his handle. I had some initial reservations about his pass/shoot decision making, but after watching him in Summer League and getting a chance to speak with him I think heíll make the right decisions as he seems extremely coachable.

Final Analysis- 16.1ppg 5.1rpg 7.8apg 2.3spg
What more is there to say about Paul. If not for an injury to his hand midseason, Paulís numbers may have been even more impressive. The fact that two teams who needed point guard help passed on him is laughable at this point. Paul was the first player starred in this report as a top rookie and he will soon be recognized as the NBAís top rookie for the season. Preseason Analysis: accurate

Hakim Warrick- Warrick needs to add weight to his thin frame. Warrick needs to become a better shooter. Warrick needs to work on his ball handling. Forget the limitations; Warrick is going to be a player. Iíll take a kid with his athleticism that has the maturity to stay in school and continue to develop any day. Warrick will never be an alpha player-one who leads his team on or off the court, but his skill set and physical ability should help him step right into the rotation.

Final Analysis- 6 games over 24mpg: 11.2ppg 5.2rpg
Warrick was never able to crack the main rotation for the playoff bound Grizzlies. While he had some flashes of brilliance during the regular season, they were few and far between. Warrick still needs to refine his game to be either a PF or SF, which is probably what cost him playing time this season. Despite the paucity of his role, Warrick still played in virtually every game and had a consistent, if minor, role. With Lorenzen Wright most likely moving on next season, Warrick will get a chance to work this off-season with a shot at getting an increased role next year. No matter how you slice it though, Warrick failed to meet expectations. Preseason Analysis: inaccurate

*Sean May- Iíve really come around on Sean May since watching him in summer league. May has good range on his jumper and he sees the court very well for a big man. Although heís a little short for a 4 his size and strength more than make up for it as May can get position well for rebounds and makes quick decisions with good touch around the basket. Mayís skills complement Okafor nicely and the tandem should be formidable in the years to come.

Final Analysis- 6 games over 24mpg: 11ppg 7.2rpg
Mayís season gets an incomplete due to a knee injury that forced the team to shut him down. May was really playing well early in the season as his face-up shooting really gave Okafor room to maneuver. Still, since May has had to deal with questions about his weight and level of fitness his whole career, one would hope that this injury gives him the proper motivation to come back fit and strong. Preseason Analysis: mixed

Raymond Felton- Heís fast, Iíll give him that. But, the juryís still out on whether or not he can make smart decisions with the ball in my opinion. Felton dominated in college because his physical attributes were vastly superior to most of his opponents, that wonít be the case quite as much in the NBA. During summer league Felton looked a bit shaky running the point. Make no mistake, he can pass and score, but it may take a while for him to figure out when to do what. Brevin Knight is a good mentor if Felton chooses to become an apt pupil.

Final Analysis- 66 games over 24mpg: 13.5ppg 6.3apg, .407fg%
Feltonís season played out almost exactly to expectations. His finish was surprisingly strong considering how many injuries Charlotte had, but his timetable for making an impact and gaining control of his tremendous skill was consistent with how we saw things playing out. Felton was out of control earl on and had to sit for a good portion of the season while Knight displayed how vital change of speeds and game pacing were to success. Once Felton got his second opportunity he began to increase his efficiency and effectiveness. Going into next season, with a healthy Sean May, Emeka Okafor, and Gerald Wallace, Felton and the Bobcats could really challenge for a playoff spot-especially if a player such as Brandon Roy falls into their lap and fills the last vacant position in the starting lineup. Preseason Analysis: accurate

*Marvin Williams- Ok, loved his potential in college because of his blend of size, strength, and skill set. But, Williams was completely lost in summer league and I expected more from a player with a solid body thatís built for an NBA small forward. Williams, and the Hawks, are going to have to determine what position heís going to play and let him settle into it. Itíll be intriguing to watch his development along side of Josh Smith, since they essentially play the same position. Williams hasnít really shown a true post game to warrant power forward speculation and his height isnít significant enough to represent a true defensive presence in the paint while on his man. Marvin seems to have a good head on his shoulders and the team is loaded with young players who should help ease the NBA transition.

Final Analysis- 57 games over 24mpg: 9.4ppg 5.2apg, .453fg%
Williams showed well in the closing games of the season getting his scoring and rebounding numbers up to rookie respectability over the final month. The play of Williams, Smith, and Childress will allow the Hawks to let veteran Al Harrington move elsewhere. With Joe Johnson manning the point guard position, the Hawks have an interesting experiment going on with 4 swingmen playing at every position but center. There is a problem with this formula however and it starts with rebounding and interior defense. Neither Williams nor Smith have shown true low post ability rebounding or scoring on the block and both project more as small forwards than power forwards. While it is still early in each playerís respective careers, this is certainly a potential area of concern. Preseason Analysis: accurate

*Andrew Bogut- Bogut doesnít intrigue me to any great degree because I feel I have a good sense for what heíll bring to the table. I figure the number one pick is good for at least 13 and 8 this season with a solid overall floor game. Bogut balks at the Divac comparisons, but I think that his career will be very similar simply off of their comparable skill sets. Bogut is more athletic and his jumper is better at this stage, but Iím not seeing 20 and 10 anytime soon. Andrew needs to really become a physical specimen if he wants to take his game to the All Star level, the next few seasons should be interesting as he has great complimentary players around him to help ease the transition.

Final Analysis- 9.4ppg 7rpg 2.3apg, .533fg%
Bogut didnít hit the stats projected above (who does) but his play was indicative of the type of player we saw coming into the season. A trade for Jamaal Magloire further reduced Bogutís limited offensive touches, but the impact was really inconsequential. Bogut was utilized for his fundamental understanding of the game without being asked to do more than he was ready to. Bogut had the opportunity to impact many games this season as a crunch time contributor and came up with a series of standout plays that emphasized just how solid a player he can become-again, doing the little things to make a big difference. Preseason Analysis: accurate

Sarunas Jasikevicius- Although heís not really a rookie Iím dying to see how his talents translate into the NBA game. Sarasí shooting and playmaking ability will really add to the Pacerís attack while his fiery attitude should keep Larry Bird grinning from the good seats. The defensive issues have been well noted, but heís won on every level heís played and I think his impact will be significant. Jamaal Tinsley is his only real competition for minutes and the point, although the Pacers have been playing him at both guard spots for most of the preseason. Either way, Saras will help this franchise challenge for the top spot in the East and his clutch play may push them back to the finals, and maybe even Sarasí fourth championship in a row.

Final Analysis- 28 games over 24mpg: 10ppg 4apg .364 3pt%
Not sure what happened with Saras in Indiana this season. Early in the season he got a chance to play some decent minutes and showed a great touch, but Carlisle refused to let him play as a point guard and eventually Saras lost his spot in the rotation to the more athletic and defensive oriented shooting guards on the team. Saras showed flashes of what he can do for a team on the offensive end and the decision to go to the Pacers over the Cavaliers is hurting both he and Cleveland right now because Saras is capable of far more than heís been able to show thus far. A surprising misuse of such an intelligent and effective leader. Preseason Analysis: inaccurate

Joey Graham- Graham has tools to play the NBA game. His strength and potential on the defensive end will enable him to cover multiple positions, even some power forward in a pinch. Grahamís shot is slightly unorthodox, but his delivery is consistent and heíll hit the 15-18 footer with regularity. Joeyís big hands allow him to control the ball well when he drives to the hoop and his wide shoulders help him bull his way past contact in the lane for the strong finish. Grahamís size and strength should allow the Raptors to put out some interesting lineups with Jalen Rose shifting back to the point or the off guard when Graham is in the game. If Joey works on his left hand and refines his overall game heíll be a very nice player.

Final Analysis- 20 games over 24mpg: 12.1ppg 4.5rpg 1spg, .478fg% .810ft%
It took a while for coach Mitchell to figure out how to use all his collection of unorthodox athletes, but once Jalen Rose was out of the picture, Graham really caught a groove. Graham shot a great percentage from the field and showed flashes of the stellar defense heís capable of. Adjusting to the speed and guile of veterans got Graham into foul trouble from time to time, but as he learns his on ball pressure should be outstanding.
Preseason Analysis: accurate

Charlie Villanueva- Villanueva seems to have all the physical tools to be a solid combo forward. He may be a bit too big and slow for some of the NBA small forwards, but Graham fills that role nicely. However, Charlieís not going to be an alpha player even though his physical skills would allow him to be one. Neither he nor Bosh are big enough to play center, but I think theyíll end up starting together a lot unless Araujo really comes around. Overall, I donít think Villanueva will consistently be a standout player on a nightly basis due to his passive nature and the depth chart issues, although heíll make the highlight reels with regularity. But, Charlie V should be a very competent starter during the course of his career and his range should really open up things for Bosh down low.

Final Analysis- 13ppg 6.4rpg, .463fg%
Charlie had an inconsistent season, something that is typical of many rookies. However, Charlieís swings in production were maddeningly large and abrupt which bespeaks of the focus alluded to at the beginning of the season. Charlie had a very productive rookie season overall and was an excellent and versatile compliment to Chris Bosh--at one point drawing parallels between the two of them as the next ďDuncan and Robinson.Ē But, Duncan, Robinson, and even Bosh have shown consistent production and steady development and are noted for their work ethic and approach. Charlie V may have that yet inside him, but going from 48pts to 13 and 4 the next two is only cute when the promise of inexperience remains. Time will tell on this oneÖ Preseason Analysis: accurate

*Ryan Gomes- In my opinion could have been a lottery pick and certainly should have gone in the first round. Tweeners tend to scare people away, but I feel Gomes will transition seamlessly into the small forward role as his jump shot is smooth, consistent, and fundamentally sound out to 18 feet. What makes Gomes a sure fire contributor this season and a potential impact player are his instincts. Ryan isnít going to wow you with amazing explosiveness, but he continually finds himself in the thick of the action because he just knows where the ball is going to be and what he must do to make it happen. With so many other talented players on the Celtics, Gomesí game should really take off as he wonít be the primary focus of the opposition as he was in college. The word to describe his game best is ďeffortlessĒ.

Final Analysis- 33 games over 24mpg: 12.4ppg 7.6rpg, .515fg%
Talk about pulling one out of a hat. Gomes seemed like an obvious choice for success this season due to his excellent collegiate career and overall skill set. Gomes did exactly as we though he would. Without the focus and attention of the defense, Gomesí court sense and skills made him a great complimentary player and he was even more impressive due to the fact that he had to sit and wait half the season for the Celticsí roster to get straightened out. With a full off-season to work on his perimeter game and ball handling skills, Gomes has a chance to really improve his game.
Preseason Analysis: accurate

Final Analysis

Out of the 13 players tabbed as sure-fire contributors all but one became a significant part of the rotation by the seasons end. Out of these 13 players, 9 played up to expectations, 1 was graded incomplete based off of circumstances not related to play, and 2 were purely off the mark. Both Warrick and Jasikevicius had some very bright moments during this season and should find success in this league on par with the skills that theyíve shown to date, but circumstance and adjustment have not enabled either player to take the roles that they may play in the future, so for now they remain a disappointment.

Charlie Villanueva may be a controversial call as ďaccurateĒ to some readers, but his talent and ability to be a quality starting player was never in doubt, as stated in the preview article. His 2 seasons in Storrs were well spent, but considering his skill level and the amount of free reign he had to explore his game, Iím still inclined to be a bit skeptical with the 13 points and 6 rebounds he produced. While it is early in his career, Villanueva had the opportunity to truly excel in a high powered Toronto offense, yet could never quite establish himself as the second option. While some of this may have had to do with Mike Jamesí insistence on being a top scorer, Iíd imagine the coaching staff did its part to find Charlie the ball. Iím sticking to my guns on this one.

Overall, none of these players were mind blowing picks to play significant roles this season due to their draft position and pedigree, but all showed solid games that spoke of more to come. While the jury is still out on this promising crop of young players, they should go into next season having raised the proverbial bar for themselves. Final Grade: A-/B+
