New, comment

Yesterday ESPN released a Best Newcomer 2015-2016. Once again a panel of 210 members of ESPN NBA contributors that voted and help make the rankings.

1. LaMarcus Aldridge

2. Ty Lawson

3. Greg Monroe

4. Paul Pierce

5. Monta Ellis

Paul Pierce with the 4th spot on the list sounds about right. The players in front of him will all make bigger impacts for their respectable teams than Pierce will at this stage of his career. Pierce brings a veteran leadership, a ring, a scorer, and some clutch shots to go with it. That's all we really need from him.
