After a month of professional action, the top rookies in the NBA have given us a little bit of information about how well they'll perform during their careers, but not everything has been made perfectly clear.
These top 10 first-year players have all had their moments of brilliance, whether it's been a show-stopping defensive performance, a highlight-reel dunk or a scoring explosion. Some players, as you might expect, have had far more of these moments than others.
This article is going to present you with two major pieces of information.
First, you'll learn who the 10 best rookies have been through the first month of the 2012-13 season. Second, you'll see a grade for each player, which evaluates their performance relative to the overall expectations going into the season.
Note: Unless otherwise indicated, all stats are current through Nov. 26.
