Predicting Which 2012 NBA Rookies Will Win a Starting Job

The 2012 rookie class is touted as one of the deepest in quite some time, and as a result, there should be a handful of players finding their way into starting lineups next season.

In 2011, the NBA had just one rookie make a starting lineup for the first game of the season: Kyrie Irving.

Whether or not any player in this year’s group has Irving-like potential is up in the air, but with the depth and talent entering the league, the 2012 prospects have too much promise to be known as a one-man show.

While nothing is ever guaranteed, there should be more than one rookie starting opening night, and there should be a group of prospects who find their way into the lineup by the time the year comes to an end.

The transition from college to the pros is never easy, but it’s a jump these players are looking to make, and a select few should make their presence felt all season long.
