Thorpe: In Rookie-Sophomore Challenge, Lopez is Top Player

The Rookie-Sophomore game is two days and a foot of snow away. ESPN's David Thorpe, who normally ranks only rookies, ranks both rookies and sophomores this week. Thorpe says Lopez is better than anyone in either class, including All-Star Derrick Rose. "And there is still a lot of room for growth in his game," Thorpe writes. "Over the next few seasons, I see him becoming a special player."
