I can name you a few...and Garnett wasn't nearly as good his rookie year or even his second year.

Carlos Boozer, Dirk Nowitzki, Marcus Camby....and even more so in Thabeet's situation. He's a shot blocker/rebounder and those are the types of players that take the longest to develop behind point guards. Guys like Roy Hibbert take a few years to come around.


1st: Note that I said "especially guys who spent a couple years in college". So Garnett and Nowitzki don't really apply there. Otherwise Dirk would be one of those "rare" exceptions, although I'll also point out that he's far from a traditional post player, and it's likely he developed more as a guard.




You said the part about a couple years in college but then used Howard and Garnett as examples in your next post so all bets were off.


And that sentence ended with "who both came straight from high school" meaning, "who don't really meet the criteria anyway. Sorry if that wasn't clear.
Ricky Rubio will be a Pamela Anderson sized bust.

Well then considering that most reasonably talented big man for about a ten year period came straight out of high school it's pointless to argue.

Who said we need to look only at that ten year period? Are historical players less relevant? I don't think so.

MVP so far in order goes:

Carmelo
Kobe
Lebron

Just to throw it out there, Lebron is shooting 51.5% from the field. Insane.
