This year, seven rookies are averaging at least 8.5 ppg, with four players averaging double digit points per game:

Code:

Name         PPG
Wilson       19.9 ppg
DeShields    13.4 ppg
KMitchell    13.1 ppg
Atkins       11.4 ppg
Nurse        8,8 ppg
Vivians      8.6 ppg
Stevens      8.5 ppg


Excluding 1997-1999 (and how WNBA.com characterizes "rookies" for those years), how does this compare to the PPG outputs for prior WNBA rookie classes?

2000
5 players averaging at least 10 ppg, 7 players averaging at least 8.3 ppg

2006
5 players averaged at least 10 ppg, but no one else over 7.5 ppg; but two players averaged at least 19 ppg

2008
3 players averaged at least 10.5 ppg, 7 players averaged at least 8.0 ppg

2012
4 players averaged at least 10.5 ppg, 6 players averaged at least 8.0 ppg

2014
4 players averaged at least 10.5 ppg, 6 players averaged at least 8.3 ppg

Could easily be 7 players....

Vivians' was avg 9.8 ppg with great momentum prior to Indiana signing Cappie.

Nurse was well over 10 ppg before Rodgers/Prince made their return.

Stevens is avg 8.6 pts in only 20.3 mpg.

That stat isn't a very good measure of impact, particularly for rookies. I would go with USG% and total possessions played for a better perspective.
