Panini America will announce a new NBA player in its Panini Authentic lineup  on Monday, someone who is big enough his memorabilia will be showcased alongside the stars you see above.

While our money is on Derrick Rose — but that’s just a guess — we want to know who you think it will be.

    If not Derrick Rose, how about Kyrie Irving?

    Maybe Kyrie Irving or John Wall if they aren’t already exclusives

    If it’s Jordan, that would be huge! All these different inserts and sets highlighting the best retired players with no MJ are a joke!

    I’m hoping for MJ (not likely) but will have to say Kyrie Irving

    Michael Jordan would not be tucked just behind Kobe.

    Jordan would get his own entire campaign.

    I thought John Wall already has an exclusive with Panini. If I was to guess, I would guess Anthony Davis, Derrick Rose, and maybe Dwyane Wade because the sillouete looks kinda like his profile.

    Whoever it is, they have less star power than Kobe Bryant.
