NBA Rookies: Their Story, Stats and Fun Facts: A blog about NBA rookies and their background information.
NBA Rookies of 2019
In this article we will talk about all the NBA rookies of the 2019 draft class. We will go over the players that were drafted in the first round and give you some insight on their individual backgrounds. In addition we will provide their full stats (college/international career). If there are any fun facts or interesting stories to tell you will find it here.
Since the NBA draft lottery is coming up, I figured it would be interesting to see what players have the best chance at being rookie of the year.
I will use a dataset containing basic information about the rookies in the year of 2010-2016. The columns include name, team, games played in the regular season, free throw percentage, field goals made and attempted, etc. If you are interested in this dataset and want to find out more details, its link is below.
NBA Rookies: Their Story, Stats and Fun Facts
The NBA rookies are a group of young basketball players who have just came into the league. They are already good players, but they want to be great. The NBA is giving them an opportunity to show what they can do. This blog is about these players. We will talk about their background, stats and fun facts about them.
The best way to learn about someone is to read their biography. This is what I did for each player on this blog. I wanted to find out how they got here and what makes them tick. It may sound simple, but it’s not easy. Every player has a story that deserves telling.
The goal of this blog is to give you an inside look at the NBA rookies and what makes them special. I hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed writing it!
As the NBA season is currently underway, I wanted to take some time to collect information about all of the rookies who have made their debut this season. The information that I am collecting includes the player’s name, team, position, height, weight, age and draft pick. Along with these facts, I will include some fun facts about each rookie.
The first rookie that I have collected data on is Brandon Ingram. He was drafted by the Los Angeles Lakers with the 2nd pick of the 2016 draft at 6’9″. He weighs 190 lbs and is only 19 years old. Although he was born in North Carolina and played college basketball at Duke University, he spent most of his childhood in Kinston, North Carolina. His father was a high school basketball coach while his mother was a track star in the state of North Carolina. He has two older sisters: Brianna (22 years old) and Alexis (16 years old). He has a tattoo on his right arm that reads “Always Believe” as a reminder to always believe in himself.
The National Basketball Association is the premier men’s professional basketball league in the world. It consists of 30 teams that play 82 games each during the regular season. The league is split into Eastern and Western conferences, with 15 teams in each conference. Teams are divided into three divisions of five teams each based on geography.
The regular season begins around mid-October for most teams and ends in late April or early May. During this period, teams will play at least one game against every other team in their conference twice, once at home and once away, and one game against all the teams in the opposing conference, also twice each. Playoffs are held after the end of the regular season and last two months, culminating in the NBA Finals in June.
While there are many talented players who have left their mark on the NBA in various ways throughout its history, some players have stood out from their peers as truly exceptional due to their physical attributes, skills, leadership qualities and overall contributions to the success of their respective teams.
You know how in the NBA, when you get drafted, your team sends you a letter congratulating you and then they tell you who else was on their draft board? I always wondered what it would feel like if they sent me a letter saying, “We were going to take you with our first pick but then we changed our minds. We want to take you with our second-round pick instead.”
I’d be like, “Thanks. I guess.” That’s kind of what happened to me when I came into the league in ’09. The Memphis Grizzlies had the
There are three main steps in writing a blog post:
Researching the topic
Devising an outline
Writing and publishing the post
Write an introduction. Good blog posts have an introduction that draws the reader in, establishes why you’re qualified to write this post, and provides an overview of what will follow.
Write your body text. The most important thing about body text is to be sure it supports your key message and responds to your readers’ needs. Don’t waste time writing about things that don’t relate closely to your primary topic. If you really feel the need to go off on a tangent, do it in a separate post.
Write a conclusion. The conclusion is just as important as the introduction, so don’t leave it out because you’re running short on time or words. A good conclusion tells your readers what they should take away from your post, gives them actionable advice on how to use your information, and invites them to comment and share their views.
Proofread and edit carefully before publishing. After you’ve finished writing, give yourself some time away from the blog post (an hour or a day) before proofreading and editing it so that you can approach it with fresh eyes. When you come back to it, read through slowly
