This young man is having the start of a fantastic rookie year. Check out what they're writing about #14

Augustin scored a career-high 29 points in a one-on-one matchup of point guards with No. 1 pick Derrick Rose, and the undermanned Charlotte Bobcats snapped a seven-game losing streak with a 110-101 overtime victory over the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday night.

Augustin forced overtime by hitting three free throws with 19 seconds left after Rose fouled him on a 3-point attempt, a call that the Bulls vehemently protested.

Augustin also helped shut down Rose, who had a rare off night in what’s been a remarkable rookie season.

Rose was held to six points on 3-of-16 shooting, with seven assists. He had a potential game-winning shot blocked by Emeka Okafor at the end of regulation and Okafor blocked him again just before Augustin’s free throws put Charlotte ahead 105-100.

“That’s why you love the NBA,” Rose said. “You’ve got another game tomorrow.”

Augustin has been a pleasant surprise from our usually spotty drafting technique. I have a feeling that having Augustin is going to make the guys who still mourn the loss of CP3 or DW feel a little better about our franchise. We needed a home run pick like Augustin looks to be.

He's going to be a star in this league and I hope he continues to play at the level that would denote his future success.

Love the kid, probably our best draft pick next to Okafor (don't shoot me). He's going to be a stud for a long time.
