07:20 AM ET 08.27 | Before NBA rookies can look forward to introducing themselves to new players and, in some cases, carrying bags, buying donuts and sporting kid-themed backpacks, they fill out the NBA.com Rookie Survey. This crop of rooks isn't coming into the league with much hype, but there are a couple of players who could make an impact right away. There are also a few that will get plenty of playing time with bad teams. Victor Oladipo is one of those, and he could be the star of the class. Who will be the 2013-14 Rookie of the Year? T-1st: C.J. McCollum, Portland & Victor Oladipo, Orlando -- 24.2 percent ... Which rookie will have the best career? T-1st: Victor Oladipo, Orlando & Kelly Olynyk, Boston -- 18.2 percent. ... Which rookie is the best defender? 1: Victor Oladipo, Orlando -- 62.9 percent.

It's too early but he is a good choice. CJ McCollum can still surprise. Olynyk can really surprise everyone if he wins it just like Lillard surprising everybody last year.

Agree with Guam. I don't know how Kobe and Dirk can be on any "favorite player" list together. If it's 'Favorite Player', how do the haters allow Kobe to be on there. And Dirk would never be on a "Favorite Player to Hate" list...

Trying to keep the Trayvon Martin topic going today? I didn't take Dee's comment to mean anything negative. And the guy does look like Deng...

Kobe has more lovers than haters. He also gets a lot more respect than any other player because he deserves it. And Dirk has been hated for a long time because he defied the odds of a big and lanky 7 footer.

hmmm...maybe there's a difference between "favorite player" and "player you'd most like to team with"?

It seems like it has been a while since we've had a real star filled draft. Bout time we had one. A lot of the well known names are gettin dangerously old

Well only small minded persons would take a joke out of context.
Why would I tease them when I myself am black?
Am not as dark as them, but still dude, chill out!

August 27, 2013  09:44 AM ET

My fave players: 1. Wade, 2. Damien Lillard, 3.Paul George, 4. Demarcus Cousins, 5.Demar Derozen...
