I must say I am not a fan of Derrick Rose, I just think that OJ Mayo and Russel Westbrook should be above him on the rookie power rankings. Both of those players add more to their respective team.

Mayo basically leads the Memphis Grizzlies, while Westbrook is just a better offensive player than Rose imo. Both them will have a more successful career than Derick Rose.

Brook Lopez had a great week and he has changed my mind and i have to say that he will be a future All Star.

Honestly I think it should go to O.J. D-Rose is good but Orange Juice and Mayoneisse is better.

Great list.

But I gotta agree with the other guys, OJ Mayo has just been off the charts, he is gonna have a great future in the NBA, but no taking anything away from Rose.

Russell Westbrook is the best rookie! He is in great form and is definitely a game winner.

Hopefully Westbrook will win in my case.

Chances are, Mayo or Rose will win it this year but Westbrook can comeback from behind and sneak into the top 2 this year, just watch.

I couldnt agree anymore with you, I am wishing Westbrook picks up rookie but cant see this happening because of the likes of Mayo and Rose is his way.

I must say that Michael Beasly, Kevin Love and Greg Oden have disappointed me as I thought they might of been up their for rookie of the year. Before the season started I was saying "I" would of picked Michael Beasly but now I would of been regretting it as he has not been playing as well as he did in the College Basketball.

For Kevin Love It wasn't been his best season and he should be disappointed at himself as he isn't even in the top 10 rookies and he was picked up 5th in the draft. I will tell you who should be shatter that is the Minnesota Timberwolves they traded possibly rookie of the year O.J. Mayo for the struggling Kevin Love after the draft. The Memphis Grizzlies should be very happy Smile

Sorry mate I just think that Greg Oden is just off the pace at the moment and he has been my disappointed of the year when it comes to rookies although Kevin Love is certainly not far behind. Oden was far superior playing for his college basketball team Ohio State and doesn't seem to be that confident at the moment playing for the Portland Trailblazzers although I am sure that he will improve once he gets use to the fast play in the nba and gets more experience under his belt.

Yes, also a disappointment, Danil Giasomething for the Knicks.

They could have gotten a much better big man than him.
