ESPN's David Thorpe still has Brook Lopez at #9 in his rookie rankings in spite of three double doubles in the last week, but SI's Bryan Armen Graham is convinced. He ranks Lopez at #4, just behind Derrick Rose, O.J. Mayo and Marc Gasol and ahead of Greg Oden. John Hollinger thinks Lopez deserves no higher than #13, but has Ryan Anderson at #7. Dave McMenamin only gives Lopez "Next Ten" status.
