Who will be the 2009-2010 NBA Rookie of the year?

Could it be Stephen Curry?

If we go by sheer weapons in ones arsenal, Curry is far ahead of the game.

Blake Griffin has the most potential and a NBA body to go with. But will he have the breakout year that sets him apart from the rest of the rookies?

Let’s face, the Rookie of the Year Award is given to the player with the most impressive offensive stat line.

Stephen Curry was blessed to be drafted by the Golden State Warriors, a team that focuses on offense. Golden State's run n’ gun pace will support Curry's game.

With Don Nelson running the system, there will be a little more room for error.

This means growth will take place faster; trial and error are the staples of excellence. Curry should be hitting his stride by the All-Star break.

The conversation will go on all season long. I'm not saying that Curry’s peak will exceed that of the Griffin's, Harden's, and DeRozan's; but he has a good lead on the race toward greatness.
