James Herbert of Hardwood Paroxysm writes about MarShon Brooks rookie season and what he plans on doing this off-season. It was, in general, a good season. Drafted at #25, he battled injury and inconsistency, became a fan favorite and showed flashes of an NBA-ready offensive game. Not so much on defense.

Herbert describes one of the high points. "At the Staples Center on April 3, he spun around Kobe Bryant and hit a twisting layup with his off-hand. 'In the midst of the game it was just another move,' Brooks said. 'But after the game I just looked at it and it was like, ‘Okay, I did kind of catch Kobe right there.’"

Gerald Wallace simply calls his teammate's offensive talents "amazing."

Brooks is somewhat satisfied and will be in the weight room all summer. "They got me on a pretty stiff schedule here," he told Herbert. "Lifting two times a day for four days a week, it’s going to be huge."
