In a San Francisco Chronicle profile of those two goofy California rookies, Brook Lopez and Ryan Anderson, Rod Thorn offers bright assessments of their futures. Thorn thinks Lopez now ranks in the top 15 centers in the NBA and could be top 5. "He's just touching what he can do.", says Rod. As for Anderson, Thorn predicts he'll be a reliable "rotation player" for many years, but needs work defensively.
