    ohw my bad. I get your point. Rondo plays on a team full of stars and that might hurt him during the voting. On the other hand.. its not like they have to vote for a player on each team so coaches can vote for KG, Ray, PP and Rondo if they want to Right now, Jennings is playing better ball than him IMO. We'll see.

    Ok ... I say FALSE

    He has bad shot selection and will be found out by opposing defenses soon, in the next 10 game stretch, and will have a bad run

    By the allstar break he'll be averaging 17 ppg, 3 rpg, 6 apg on the 11th or 12th ranked team in the east

    Not saying he wont be a great player in years to come, he's just not going to average 20+ ppg for the rest of the season

    IMO

    It's not bad shot selection if you make 'm. Iverson always a knack of scoring of the dribble, putting up tough shots (hence the low FG%) but he was a great scorer nonetheless. I see some of AI in BJ (LOL)

    He has a shot if he keeps this up.
    He is fun to watch, he is preforming better than expected, and this has not gone unnoticed

    True

    Bucks are winning and he is putting up very good stats.

    From what I've seen;
    - he strongly prefers going left, something that can be exploited
    - he takes A LOT of 3s (attempts 5 a game, many bad shots) and is shooting 54%, dont expect this to continue, he is having a hot shooting streak based on past form, I'd expect him to reduce this to about 35% and then take less per game
    - Based on this hot shooting I'd expect his mid range shooting to drop a bit also
    - Add onto this the fact he is a rookie, and is inexperienced and when opposing defenses start studying and locking down on him it will take longer for him to adapt, and his bad runs of form will be longer than a veteran

    Once again this is just my opinion based on the couple of full games I've seen, and general highlights, nothing against the kid personally, or what he could achieve later in his career

    But the OP asked for a prediction

    He's averaging 25ppg, he's deserving of all the talk he's getting.

    What's so hard to believe? There have been plenty of rookies with worse stats who were voted in as an all star in their second year.

    I don't think so. He's averaging 26, 5, and 5 for a rookie, and he's carrying that lowly Bucks team (without its star player) and they have a surprising 5-3 record. Having said that, eventually I don't think he'll make the All-Star team because I don't see him keeping this up. Once Redd comes back, his numbers will drop. Although with the lack of a plethora of talent in Eastern guards, it certainly is possible.

    A poster wanted a question answered about something I wrote in my post. Which I did.

    Stop hanging on my every word.
