      U forgot 2023-2024 when lebron jr is going if he really wants to go to the nba he will go straight to outa college. Hope he goes cavs but im a cavs fan he would be good on golden state maybe Toronto would win a champ if hes on there. IM NOT A BIG FOLLOWER OF JAMES JR I DON KNOW MUCH ABOUT HIM I ONLY KNOW HIM FROM YOU TUBE. Im on mobile btw sorry for spelling errors.

    People get caught up in stats too much.
    1. Averaging 26 in 2019 is like 20 in 2005 since you cant make any contact what so ever since the nba knows high scoring is more fan friendly (not fans of the craft obv)
    2. I dont agree with luka being 1 BUT what makes him so great is his game, not his stats. He controls the tempo, he can dribble, he can shoot, he can pass, step back, euro, got a good feel for drawing the foul etc. compared to blake where he was more dominant and athletic

    I havemt watched basketball in a while and ecided to check out the Mavs recently with this Luka kid. Yrs, hes good, but i see alot of extras being out on it for no reason. It feels very great white hype-ish.
    First let me say, dude is good. Yes, he is. But im seeing people compare his rookie year to Jordan and James and I'm like calm down.
    He aint touching Bird's rookie. Amd from how i saw Cuban and others talk about him you would thibk the team is playoff contention. I just looked at the western cinference standings and theyre 3rd from the bottom.
    At least with that flash in the pan Jeremy Lin hype they were winning more games than they were losing.

    Simmons wasn't a real rookie but Blake was. Doncic(and he's doing great, that's not my point) is a real rookie but that's his 3^ years in pro basketball. Not NBA, but for sure A LOT better than college or high school...how could Ayton be on pair with that?

    Why didn't you put Dwight Howard on this list? He was dominant in his rookie season, but wasn't a good offensive player.

    Come on how can Luca have the best rookie season since Lebron and it’s not even the all star break yet terrible video wait until the playoffs and call it the best regular season by a rookie since Lebron and do some more research

    Just make more highlights of Danny green instead. Make highlights of him every game no matter what his score is. You will have more followers that way.

    I love Luka's game and what he has been doing this year... but you are delusional if you think he's already passed any of those 9 players you have on the list. I have him on the 10th spot and not anywhere higher. But when the seasons has ended... he might get spot no 2 but Blake's season will be hard to beat.
