What Are The Best Teams To Pick For 12/13 Basketball Box Breaks?

The lockout really messed up basketball collectors buying habits last season ... only a few 2011/12 products were even made & it wasn't until the season was almost over.

While we were all upset we couldn't collect all the new rookies - it did setup a pretty nice year for basketball during the 2012/13 NBA season. Essentially Panini will be combining the two rookie classes, so you can expect to find lots of cards from players that were recently drafted.

Given that Panini has exclusive deals with Kobe Bryant, Kevin Durant, Blake Griffin the Dallas Mavericks and some others teams/players - you really can't go wrong picking the Lakers, Thunder or Mavs in a box break. However, if you are strictly rookie card hunting - the list below should help you make some good choices based on how many rookies each team should have in most sets.

- This list is not "official"
- I included the top 25 players selected in 2012 because that's who Panini gave redemptions for
- I included most of the top rookies from 2011, including Isaiah Thomas & some others drafted late
- I will update this with the 'Photo Shoot' rookies when that information becomes available

In the meantime - gear up for a big season of NBA box breaks!
