ESPN: Bledsoe #2 rookie surprise, Griffin #1 overall

18

It's in Insider so I have pasted the piece we care about. At the current rate, I expect Aminu will be on this list in a few weeks. For rookie surprises: "2. Eric Bledsoe, Clippers Bledsoe was simply dreadful in Vegas summer league for the most part. He showed incredible talent physically, but little ability to run a team or be a good decision-maker. However, after replacing an injured Baron Davis in the starting lineup, Bledsoe has looked more adept at finding ways to use his great athleticism. And his shooting has looked better, too. He's still more dangerous in transition than he is in the half court, but he's starting to look more composed and patient in this area. Here's the part I like best: In his first four starts, he had seven steals, four blocked shots and two offensive rebounds. That's finding a way to help your team win." In overall rookie rankings, Griffin is now #1: "Blake Griffin, Clippers We all expected to see Griffin pounding dunks home, finishing shots inside, and rebounding the leather off the ball. But I'm also impressed with his patience on isolations, specifically his use of shot fakes before he drives. He still has to improve the look of those fakes (make them look more like shots) but using them is a big first step. Griffin has shown a decent turnaround jump shot, too, which is a must-have weapon with the shot clock winding down. And his jump hook is money. He looks confident scoring over or around any defender."
