Al Horford Breaks into the Top 25
 
After a couple of weeks on the cusp, Al Horford has finally cracked the Top 25 NBA Players Under 25 list. What do you think, Hawks fans? Will he stay this low for long?

Also, Josh Smith stays in the Top 10 and Marvin Williams is rated in the teens again.

Yi is better than him. Horford's the #4 rookie, IMO, unless you don't consider Greg Oden to be a rookie. Al will be a solid defender and rebounder for years to come.

Who is #2 then? Jamario Moon? Sean Williams? Personally, I think Al is the safer bet (because he will ALWAYS offer rebounding and D) but Yi has a much bigger upside offensively.

Horford had such an ugly shot in college. I wonder if he'll improve that now at the next level.

I see, you're including The Bearded Buckeye. I think Oden has a long way to go once he finally gets healed. He probably won't even be 70% as effective as he can be until his third year in the league. With that said, he's still a dominate force and should be ahead of at least Horford.

I put Durant ahead of Oden, though.
