It is important to remember Ball is the exception, not the rule. Ball came into the game with 2.5 win shares on the season. Sacramento’s Tyrese Haliburton was second at 2.2. No other player picked in the 2020 draft is over two. Of the teams succeeding right now, very few are doing so on the strength of rookies. There have been fun contributors around the edges, such as Immanuel Quickley in New York or Desmond Bane and Xavier Tillman in Memphis, but that’s about it when it comes to competitive teams.
Another rookie exceeding expectations is Tyrese Haliburton, who has also surprised with his shot-making. I might suggest Haliburton is due for some regression on this front, as no matter how high one might have been on him, “top-10 shot-maker” in the NBA was never a realistic expectation. Desmond Bane was one of the best shooting prospects in this class, and that has borne out.
