NBA Rookie Rankings: Best in December – ESPN

David Thorpe’s NBA Rookie Rankings: Best in December – ESPN:

3. Jonny Flynn, Timberwolves

Flynn has had a few dynamic games in December, none bigger than his 28-point outburst in Utah which included a terrific drive and finish to win the game. He’s averaging over 14 ppg, making 38 percent of his 3s and starting to look more comfortable running the triangle offense and an improved transition game.

Most importantly, perhaps, was his attitude the other night when Ramon Sessions came in and played most of the latter parts of the game to help the Wolves get a win. Flynn was on the bench smiling and cheering his teammates on. He knows this is still his team, as long as he keeps making progress.
