Thought i would bring this up with the long lockout. Which players do you see having that star potential and shown some promise early in their careers? I have two guys on top of my head. Demarcus Cousins and Kyle Lowry. If Cousins can get his attitude and maturity together, he will be a force. The kid is a baller already. He has a good midrange jumper, post up, quick hands, passer, and defender.

Kyle Lowry is a stout defender with quick hands. He has the nose for the ball. Knows how to find the open man and finishes to the hole along with high bball IQ. His jump shot is getting better, but needs more consistency. The kid is a bull!

I think the best NBA rookie coming out of college this year will be the guy from Arizona state. Can't remember his name. But in the NCAA tournament against Duke he looked like a man against boys...

Steph Curry!!! If Ellis eventually goes, his numbers will definitely go up as well because he will be depended on more.

DeMarcus Cousins will be a beast IF he matures. If he matures and quits getting mad and he asserts himself he is going to do some beasting in the NBA. The Kings are going to be fun to watch with Cousins, Tyreke Evans and Jimmer Fredette. GO KINGS!

-Cheers.

Derrick Williams, who played for the Arizona Wildcats. And yes, he should be a baller for Minnesota.

I'm looking forward to seeing:

Kyrie Irving with Cleveland

John Wall and Javale McGee with Washington

Derrick Favors playing with Devin Harris in Utah

The Kings in general. JJ Hickson is now a member so they're still going to be a young team.

Bismack Biyombo and Kemba Walker in Charlotte



(sigh) Stupid lockout.
