Been reading quite a number of posts on how the Raps should get veterans to "mentor" JV when he comes in or when draft picks come in....

Do you guys think its a good idea to mentor players right when they start their rookie year, or let them find their identity in the NBA first, then determine how they should be mentored or who should mentor them after......

Im with the latter. I think rookies should be given the opportunity first to find their game, rhythm in the NBA by themselves and later on, when theyve determined how theyve adjusted their game to the NBA, then get them a mentor. IMO, if you get a rookie a mentor off the bat, youre essentially molding him into something that he may not be what he truly is.
