Remember back in the lockout when Jimmer Fredette was going to put together a rookie game and how the nation's leading scorer (Fredette) hadn't invited the nation's second leading scorer (Marshon Brooks) to the game...and no one knew why. Maybe Jimmer didn't want to get shown up.

David Thorpe this week ranks Brooks at No. 3 among rookies behind Ricky Rubio and Kyrie Irving, saying "he's been terrific." In the NBA efficiency rankings for rookies, Brooks is also No. 3. Where's Jimmer? In Thorpe's rookie rankings, he's No. 26 and in the efficiency rankings, No. 31 ... and last among those with enough minutes to qualify.
