Derrick Rose's 08-09 outlook: Big Disappointment

ESPN still has the outdated blurb on Derrick Rose's player page. Everyone thought the #1 draft pick would take some time to get it going. The conventional wisdom was that point guards take time to adjust. 2009 Season Outlook No matter which way you slice it, Rose is being set up to be a big disappointment in his rookie season. With talent like his, people are going to expect the world. Remember, rookie point guards tend to have a tough time adjusting to the NBA, and although Rose has the speed and athleticism to make it work, he will likely struggle out of the gate. Rose figures to earn around 30 minutes per game in his rookie season, where he’ll show glimpses of brilliance, but the growing pains will show up in the form of inconsistency. A realistic and reachable projection would be 12-13 points, 4 rebounds, 5 assists and 1.1 steals per game.
