Stars to Watch

Jeremy Lamb

The Houston Rockets have been at the center of the Dwight Howard saga this offseason, but the team they have built in spite of their attempts to trade them away is admirable. With three first-round picks, their best selection came at No. 12 when they took UConn star Jeremy Lamb.

With no clear leaders and no clear star, Lamb sees his opportunity to make an impression and is running with it. The Rocket has averaged 20.3 points so far, and there is no doubting that his success will continue.


Damian Lillard

The Portland Trail Blazers snagged the best all-around point guard in the 2012 draft when they took Weber State star Damian Lillard in the first round.

In his short time with the team, he has already proved that his offensive game is enough to make him the team’s starter, but his ability to facilitate his teammates is where he will separate himself in the NBA.

Lillard will be a double-double machine (points and assists).


Bradley Beal

While Florida Gator Brad Beal isn’t shooting the lights out like the Washington Wizards had hoped, he has shown an amazing ability to make his own shots and get to the rim when needed.

Beal must find a better rhythm if he wants to be an impact player alongside John Wall in the Wizards backcourt, but the young star’s abilities will begin to shine though as he works closer with one of the best pure point guards in the game.

Watch out for Washington’s guard duo.
