Does anyone here really think Wiseman will be as polished a rookie as Anthony Davis was. Or, that Wiseman is going to approach the kind of numbers and minutes AD got during his rookie season? If not, then why are people expecting this kid to be a difference maker in year one? I just don't see it. I think we need to calm down the expectations.
Ayton averaged 16.3ppg and 10.3 rpg
Jahlil Okafor averaged 17.5ppg and 7 rpg
Marvin Bagley was 14.9ppg and 7.6 rpg
Jarren Jackson 13.8 ppg and 4.7 rpg
Markkanen 15.2 ppg 7.5 rpg
Yes, I fully expect Wiseman to come close to AD's numbers since the others listed did too. AD was pretty much playing for an expansion team when he got drafted.
