Eye on Basketball Podcast: Rookie roundup

By Zach Harper | NBA writer

Matt Moore joins me to talk about the rookies of the 2012-13 NBA season. We're nearly two-thirds of the way through their first season and we wanted to discuss which players are good, which rookies are making strides, and which new guys have a lot of work to do.

The main thing you want to talk about with rookies is the Rookie of the Year award race, and while Portland Trail Blazers phenom Damian Lillard seems to have this wrapped up by default, is Anthony Davis of the New Orleans Hornets actually a better player?

We also get into the controversial situation that is Dion Waiters. There seems to be very polarized viewpoints of how he is among Cleveland Cavaliers fans against the rest of the world. What are his strengths so far? Can they outweigh his weaknesses? What needs to change to ensure he's a great fit next to Kyrie Irving and how does Byron Scott go about doing this?

We talk about those guys plus Andre Drummond of the Detroit Pistons, our infatuation with Milwaukee Bucks rookie John Henson, lots of other rookies, and preview Wednesday night's games.
