Who is going to be NBA Rookie of the Year?
The 2009 NBA Draft was lacking the star power of recent drafts. Most of the prospects are unproven and drafted on potential. The number 1 pick in the draft was Oklahoma's PF Blake Griffin. He has been compared to the likes of Karl Malone. That is a hefty name to live up to. A polished defensive Center ( UConn's Thabeet) was taken with the 2nd pick of the draft, but needs to work on his overall offense. A 19-year old Spanish PG (Rubio) was also taken within the first 5 picks and has garnished much attention. He has excellent court vision and a natural passer, but there are many questions surrounding Rubio. The best pure shooter ( Davidson's Curry,) in the draft was taken by the Golden State Warriors. Where Curry will play is still a large question looming, either PG of SG. The most accomplished player in the draft was UNC's Tyler Hansbrough. He was personally picked by NBA Hall-of-Famer Larry Bird. He could turn into a very good player with his work ethic and hustle or a 12th man like Mark Madson. These are all questions that are going to be answered in the upcoming NBA season. Who do you think fits best with his team in the long-haul? Who is going to be the best player in this years draft? And mostly, Who is going to be NBA Rookie of the Year?

Blake Griffin is already showing what he can do. It all matters on his team though.

I go with Jonny Flynn because of his playing in the Summer League. He was pretty much the best rookie out there tied with Blake Griffin.

 I think Jonny Flynn, cause he was great in the summer league. Also, when he was at Syracuse he was amazing.He basically can go to basket hard whenever he wants to. He's a great PG and i think he will lead the T'Wolves really well, and get Rookie of the Year.

Curry is on a team where he can put up great stats and if they can get everyone healthy and come together then the teams overall record could improve enough that he will sway a lot of voters.
