ESPN's David Thorpe usually grades NBA rookies, but on Thursday, he took a look at the league's sophomore class. He admits that he didn't like the Nets' pick of Boone--few draftniks had him going as high as #23. Now, Thorpe says the Nets' center is "developing into a double-double guy on a team desperate for inside help". Boone doesn't make Thorpe's Top 10, mainly because of his atrocious foul-shooting.
