Default what is the best & worst outcome for every 2007 rookie?

Basically who will this year's prospects turn out to be in best and worst case scenarios?

Here are my predictions:

1. Greg Oden: (will miss the season but whatever) Best: David Robinson Worst: Marcus Camby

2. Kevin Durant: Tracy Mcgrady; Lamar Odom

3. Al Horford: Carlos Boozer; Udonis Haslem

4. Mike Conley Jr: Chris Paul; Damon Stoudmire

5. Jeff Green: Richard Jefferson; Josh Howard

6. Yi Jianlian: Chris Bosh; Darius Miles

7. Corey Brewer: Andre Iguodala; Tayshaun Prince

8. Brandon Wright: Shawn Marion; Kenyon Martin

9. Joakim Noah: Tyson Chandler; Anderson Verajao

10. Spencer Hawes: Vlade Divac; Chris Kaman

11. Acie Law: Chauncey Billups; Jamal Crawford

12. Thaddeus Young: Rashard Lewis; Caron Butler

13. Julian Wright: Eddie Jones; Tim Thomas

14. Al Thornton: Corey Maggette; Desmond Mason

90% OF THE PLAYERS YOU LISTED COULD END UP way worse than you have them. And in some cases the "worse" player is actually better than the good one(josh howard/jefferson).

If the worst case for these guys are major contributors on some of the better teams out there, I guess they are locks.

LO is the worst case scenario for KD?
Brewer will be at least the well rounded consummate pro that prince is?

Lets hope so for their teams sake.

It was hard but I think I did my best, anyway give a go yourselves, you can correct those on my list that you don't agree with, or start your own if you disagree with most of my list.

Miller is a career 18 point per game scorer whose game was built around outside shooting and off ball movement.

I think we have different views on just how good Reggie Miller was. I think it's highly unlikely he'll become as good as Reggie. I guess we'll just agree to disagree on that.

You're right on how his game is built, but I think there's a key difference in range. I'm not sure Morris has that kind of half-court range potential.

Durant isn't similar to T-Mac or Odom. He is much taller than T-Mac but he doesn't have the passing skills or athletisism T-Mac does. He also is a better shooter than T-Mac. Anyway.

Greg Oden- Best Case: Patrick Ewing, Worst Case: Sam Bowie
Kevin Durant- Best Case: More athletic Larry Bird without the point guard type passing skills, Worst Case: Rashard Lewis
Al Horford- Best Case: Carlos Boozer: Worst Case: Fabricio Oberto
Mike Conley Jr.- Best Case: Tony Parker: Worst Case: Tyronn Lue
Jeff Green- Best Case: Richard Jefferson, Worst Case: Darius Miles
Yi Jianlian- Best Case: Dirk Nowitzki, Worst Case: Nikoloz Tskitishvili
Corey Brewer- Best Case: poor man's Scottie Pippen, Worst Case: James Posey
Brandan Wright- Best Case: Larry Nance, Worst Case: Tyrus Thomas
Joakim Noah- Best Case: David Lee, Worst Case: Anderson Varejao
Spencer Hawes- Best Case: Brad Daugherty, Worst Case: Raef Lafrentz
Acie Law- Best Case: Sam Cassell, Worst Case: Derek Fisher
Thaddeus Young- Best Case: Paul Pierce, Worst Case: Deshawn Stevenson
Julian Wright- Best Case: Boris Diaw, Worst Case: Antoine Wright
Al Thornton- Best Case: Caron Butler, Worst Case: Deshawn Stevenson
Sean Williams- Best Case: Amare Stoudemire or Ben Wallace, Worst Case: Jason Collins

What Morris may (this is not a given) lack in range he beats Miller in terms of athleticism.
