It can't be any comfort for Brook Lopez but the stats geek over at Wages of Wins thinks he had a better rookie year than Derrick Rose...but not quite as good as Kevin Love. Dave Berri suggests in fact that Rose "was essentially little better than an average player in 2008-09" as measured by "wins produced". Berri ranks Ryan Anderson #23 and Chris Douglas-Roberts #33 by "wins produced".
