I thought this was a thread about Mr. Hobbs!

I'll go with Mayo.  Not sure why, I just think he could be ridiculous if he clicks in the NBA.

I think it'll ultimately be between Beasley and Mayo, with Beasley getting the slight edge based on name value and team record. Then Oden will fall in place right behind those two.

which team they play for will make a difference as well. oden will be good, but the blazers have such talent that he probably wont get the numbers as rose or others might.

  • Hinrich sucks, Deng sucks, Bulls suck, I'm out.
I'm going on OJ Mayo, mostly because of his dunk from last week. Thats the kind of thought I put into these polls.

Mayo... he's going to be running free with Conley and Gay in Memphis.  Beasley will defer to Wade and Marion.  Oden/Bayless have too much talent around them.  Rose will struggle as most 1st year points do.  Don't see many others that will contend.

Please make a note of it: I flatly predict O.J. Mayo will be a big nothing in the NBA.  If I'm wrong, feel free to taunt away.

OJ Mayo. Combination of his all around game and the major minutes he'll get on a bad team.

Give me at least three months on the Mayo prediction/taunting.  We'll need to work our way past the inconsequential, but limited number of crapola highlight dunks they'll show us on ESPN, and then through some of the fumbling around media stories where coaches and colleagues will start making excuses for him.  I figure around about January, Memphis officials will announce Mayo has a slight stress fracture, and will need to curtail his minutes. Meanwhile, they'll be burning up cell phones trying to trade the guy away.

I'm rooting for Oden to get it, so I'll go with him. (Him being 47 years old gives him the experience advantage)

Its Beasley's to lose just like it was Durant's to lose last season. Scorers always prosper, and Beasley is better than Mayo at "gettin buckets"

Oden.   he will get a lot of credit (probably deserving credit) of turning Portland into a solid playoff team, possible vying for a top 4 seed. 

His presence will allow Roy and Aldridge to take a big step in their development.




p.s.  I to thought this was about Roy Hobbs.

I'm just not a fan of Oden being a rookie. >:( My vote is for Rose. He'll have the ball in his hands a lot.
