    May 4, 2011, 5:49 PM EST

    Griffin Mosgov

    There was no drama surrounding this year’s Rookie of the Year selection. After missing the entirety of what would have been his rookie season, Blake Griffin exploded out of the gates in 2011 and never looked back.

    Chicago Bulls v Orlando Magic

    Bulls 102 Magic 99. This was a fantastic ballgame that will be overshadowed by narratives about the MVP.
