As Nets Climb in Standings, Lopez Climbs in Rookie Rankings

New, comments

The Nets are 9-3 since Brook Lopez joined the starting lineup and the 7-footer from Stanford is getting rewarded with moves up in the weekly rookie rankings. SI now has him third, behind ROY candidates Derrick Rose and O.J. Mayo and ahead of Greg Oden. ESPN's "Rookie 50" has him at #7, also his top ranking on that list this season. Lopez is averaging 12.6 and 9.0 as a starter. Ryan Anderson ranks #20.
