Default Andrew Nicholson will be on the all rookie team.

Every time I've seen this kid play in college and in summer league he's always impressed me. This kid can do it all on the offensive end. He has incredibly advanced footwork in the paint, great hands, a soft touch, a vast array of post moves, and good handles. He also has a quick first step, good explosiveness around the rim and an NBA ready body.

He has elements of several players in his game - the in between game and funky floaters reminds me a bit of Antawn Jamison and he's got a little bit of Luis Scola in his footwork and the way he finds a way to get his shot off.

His defense isn't bad either, he holds his position on the block well, is a capable shot blocker and solid rebounder. I really like his potential and playing a bad team like the Magic will allow him to see the court more.

Hope he keeps developing. He lacks speed and is a bit slow to react to other players at the moment which will keep him from ever being a star, but he has the fundamental skills to become a good solid all round starter, at the worst looks like a lock in role player.

loving how comfortable he looks on the offensive end, hopefully the magic continue to play him and let him and some of our other rookies play since we should lose as many games as possible this season

I'm willing to bet 100 dollars he isn't.

What little I've seen of him, I like so far. He's not that athletic, but he can play. He is a bit slow, but I think he can have a fine career. No All Star, but a solid player.

my man. this kid has improves every time he gets on the court. here at bonaventure, every year people thought "well he can't really duplicate what he did last year" until he carried the team to an a-10 championship and nearly upset florida state in the first round.

he'll continue to improve in the nba, he's a VERY smart kid (was a physics major here). he'll pick up everything, very coachable.
he is a bit slow, but he can easily make up for that. underrated as a passer and his athleticism doesn't get in the way when he has some of the best footwork in the league already.
