Enter Rookiepedia, a wiki for incoming players from the fertile mind of Jeff at Celticsblog. This is a chance to find out about those names and guys you donâ€™t know from people who did see and follow them. And, itâ€™s the chance to provide a little insight yourself if you can.
I already love poking around this, and Iâ€™ll be there constantly leading up to the draft (whatever the Lakers do with the 19th pick). This has the potential to be the second best Wiki ever â€” nothing can beat Lostpedia.

â€¢ And so did this.
â€¢ Kurt Rambis is one of the final three candidates for the Sacramento kings job, although Tom at Sactown Royalty thinks its Terry Portersâ€™ job to lose.
