In the newest installment of Rookie Retrospectives, we take a look at the 10th pick in last year's draft, Brook Lopez. The former Stanford Cardinal has been a real bright spot for the Nets this season, establishing himself as an outstanding rebounder and shot-blocker right off the bat, while displaying excellent potential offensively as well. He seems to be improving with each game as well, becoming a nice complement to New Jersey's two perimeter stars. Mature and composed beyond his years on the floor, Lopez proves to be both a good teammate and an eager student of the game. Coupled with his shooting ability, strong frame, and athleticism, those qualities should help Lopez become a force in the Eastern Conference in the not too distant future.
The Golden State Warriors two-time NBA MVP superstar, Stephen Curry, reflects on the importance of form shooting, his father's influence on his shot development and his rise to prominence from Davidson College at the 2013 NBA All-Star Game.
