In the newest installment of Rookie Retrospectives, we take a look at the 10th pick in last year's draft, Brook Lopez
. The former Stanford Cardinal has been a real bright spot for the Nets this season, establishing himself as an outstanding rebounder and shot-blocker right off the bat, while displaying excellent potential offensively as well. He seems to be improving with each game as well, becoming a nice complement to New Jersey's two perimeter stars. Mature and composed beyond his years on the floor, Lopez proves to be both a good teammate and an eager student of the game. Coupled with his shooting ability, strong frame, and athleticism, those qualities should help Lopez become a force in the Eastern Conference in the not too distant future.
