We get a sense it will take a while for fans to get a full picture of Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, the rookie with the big personality and big expectations.  With each new tweet or video, there's something surprising.

Like did you know he plays the piano?

Or dabbles in poetry?

We do know he enjoys working with kids, including dunking on them, like he did last week at a camp in Monroe Township, N.J.

Yes, he playfully admits that he enjoyed the dunk. The kid did, too.

For the Nets, it's all good. Not only do they see a player who already has defensive skills and is working on better offensive skills. RHJ has something else: an authentic magnetism that can attract fans. It's a big reason they went after him as he dropped on Draft Night.
