Kyrie is likely to be ROY this year. He led all rookies in scoring with 18.5 ppg on 47% shooting and almost 40% from 3. I just heard that Kyrie is only the 2nd rookie to ever average 18 and 40% from 3. The other was Larry Legend (21 and .406). Kyrie is 2nd amongst rookies in Hollinger's per stat, behind Faried. Griffin won the award about this time last season, so we should hear something official soon.
Various rookie rankings:
Kyrie gets 29/30 votes for ROY here, with Rubio nabbing the other.
Grantland's rookie rankings
This is a bandwagon that I'm happy to jump on. Is this essentially the expected result at this point? Or is there still some doubt that Kyrie might not take home the hardware?
Does anyone know when rookie of the year will be announced...
If he does win, that will make 3 ROY for Duke and K but the first to win it outright (the first 2, Hill and Brand shared the honors). I find it interesting that K would then coached as many nba ROY's as ACC FOY's.
he's got my vote....if i had a vote....he's been off da chain....
