Best and Worst NBA Rookie Performances from Week 1

We've gone through a week (kind of) of NBA basketball, so it's time to take a look back at the young fellows who just came into the league and see who's rising up above the rest.

It's a bit early to predict how each guy's rookie season is going to go, but some special rookies are already showing dominant-player potential right out of the gate (hint: Their names rhyme with Blamphony Schmavis and Tamian Willard).

In order to get a full picture of what's going on, we've got to take a look at the good with the bad. Some players have shown us a little bit of both already in this young season.

Ahead, we'll pick out the best and worst games from the NBA rookies so far. So you don't finish reading with a bad taste in your mouth, we might as well kick it off with the worst.

Edit: After the fervor it seems like I've got to add Dion Waiters to the list. He didn't technically play in the first calendar week of the season, but it was in the first seven days so I'll crumble. What can I say, I'm weak.
