Default Who do you think will have the best sophmore season this upcoming year?

With a whole NBA season under their belt, the upcoming NBA sophomores are better prepared for what the NBA has to offer. Many of them had very respectable rookie seasons, and some of them just began showing what they can bring to their team at season end.

With a 2nd training camp, a more defined role, and better chemistry with their teams, who do you think will have the best sophomore season?

some notable candidates:

Andre Drummond: going from a 20 minute bench role to a (hopeful) 30+ min a game starting role. His free throw % is still terrible, and his offensive game is somewhat raw, but he has the potential to put up something like 15/12/2 blocks a game this season

Anthony Davis: injuries really did take a toll on him this season. But when he was on the floor, he really did produce. a potential multi cat stud. Im not sure what NO's plan is with their front court(theyre looking at oden), but the team as a whole is far more complete, and because of it, davis should shine

Damian Lillard

Jonas V

Harrison Barnes

Potential Sleepers:

Evan Fournier

Bradley Beal

Moe Harkless (highly doubtful, but im excited to see his improvements)


So out of all the sophmore players this season, who do you think will have the best year?

I like Lillard to win this but Barnes showed some potential during the playoffs. Jackson will play him a lot more and I wouldn't be surprised if he goes through a growth spurt this year.

Lillard, Davis, Drummond and Barnes have the best chance.

I wouldn't really consider Beal a sleeper, he had a great rookie year, and everyone knows he can ball, I expect him to have a great year.

I think Drummond could really make an impact and turn some heads. I could see Davis hardly improving. If Barnes can get minutes he will play great again. Obviously Lillard will play great but idk how much his ppg will improve, hopefully his assists will raise

agreed about beal. i originally intended to put him in the first list, but for whatever reason, i threw him into the sleepers. but yeah, he had a great rookie season. started off a bit slow, but by january or so, his game really came together and he was putting up pretty nice numbers. both points and rebounds. injuries kind of fvcked him over at the end of the season. but he'll definitely have a great sophmore year next to wall.

Davis.

I can see Lillard posting the same stats as his rookie year but Anthony Davis improving greatly due to not being injured.
