Before the draft, Chad Ford and I had dinner together to discuss this class. Chad made an excellent argument supporting the claim that even though this class was considered weak, there would still be 15 or so players who would go on to have productive NBA careers. We went through the past five drafts and had no problem picking out at least 15 or so per class whom we could label as rotation guys.
Despite this year's class missing two of its "stars," it has produced just as Chad expected. We'll be watching many of these guys do special things for years to come. With that said, here are my All-Rookie team selections, plus a few other notable guys.
