NBA Rookies Polled To See What They Think About The 2014-15 Draft Class


The NBA should do more of these things. Ya know, getting players to anonymously give their opinions of their peers. It’s a nice way to build rivalries (sort of), or at least motivate guys who would otherwise think they’re hot shit (see: MOST OVERRATED, below).

Biggest surprises? How highly Shabazz Napier and Kevin Durant are thought of (and conversely, how much less popular LeBron and Andrew Wiggins are among the current rookie class). Check out the rest of the poll, here.

Andrew Wiggins, Cleveland — 8.3 percent
T-4: Shabazz Napier, Miami — 5.6 percent
Nerlens Noel, Philadelphia — 5.6 percent
Elfrid Payton, Orlando — 5.6 percent
