Thorpe: Lopez Most Like Yao

New, comments

ESPN's David Thorpe has made his call on Rookie of the Year and it's Derrick Rose, but just barely over Brook Lopez. The rookie ranker praises Lopez and makes the case that of all the NBA centers, Lopez is closest to Yao Ming. "He and Yao are the only two players in the NBA this season to have such balance on offense and also finish in the league's top 10 in blocked shots." Robin Lopez has his say as well.
