Writers who follow rookies for NBA.com, Sports Illustrated and ESPN think it's time to start talking about the NBA Rookie Challenge. Everyone thinks Sean Williams is well qualified at center. Drew Packham of SI is the only one to drop Williams in this week's rankings, from #6 to #7, while David McMenamin of the NBA and David Thorpe of ESPN put him at #4 and #5. Thorpe gives him high praise for his quickness. John Hollinger (!!) has Williams ranked #1, based on player efficiency.
