Rookie of the Year

  1. Video: Kyrie Irving’s spinning game winner vs. Celtics

    Sorry Celtics fans, I don’t mean to rub salt in your wound. Well, too much. But frankly this spinning game winner from Cavaliers’ rookie Kyrie Irving to beat the Celtics on Sunday is worth watching again (or at least one time if you haven’t seen it). That is a rookie calmly letting the clock run…

  2. Derrick Williams gamblers favorite to be Rookie of Year

    Jun 27, 2011, 3:22 PM EDT

    2011 NBA Draft

    Kyrie Irving was the consensus No. 1 pick because of position and potential, but Derrick Williams — who comes into the league ready to score right away — might have a better rookie season. Which is why the bookmakers at Bodog.com made him the favorite to be the Rookie of the Year: Derrick Williams 9/2…

  3. Miss watching games last night? How about some Blake Griffin?

    May 6, 2011, 8:19 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Los Angeles Clippers

    After a month of playoff intensity, the basketball gods… well, actually the television executives that wanted to drag out the Heat/Celtics series more likely, decided to give us a night off. I didn’t like it either. To get a little fix we give you the compilation of Blake Griffin highlights the NBA kindly put together.…

  4. Blake Griffin the unanimous choice for Rookie of the Year

    May 4, 2011, 5:49 PM EDT

    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. He put up some of the best numbers for a rookie forward in the last few decades, provided…

  5. Blake Griffin to be announced as Rookie of Year on Wednesday

    May 3, 2011, 8:52 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    Here is the only bit of suspense about this announcement: Is it unanimous? And if it’s not, would the person who thinks Blake Griffin is not rookie of the year like to explain themselves. The Clippers have called for a “major announcement” Wednesday afternoon in Los Angeles, which will certainly be Griffin winning the award.…

  6. Imagine how good John Wall will be when he is healthy

    Apr 22, 2011, 6:40 PM EDT

    T-Mobile Rookie Challenge and Youth Jam

    Remember way back to the start of the season, when John Wall missed a handful of game due to a foot injury? Probably not, because when he came back he was pretty impressive. Good enough to be second in the Rookie of the Year balloting. Dude dropped 22 assists at the All-Star weekend Rookie Challenge…

  7. Tyreke Evans considering laser procedure for foot, would sideline him three months

    Tyreke Evans, John Salmons

    Tyreke Evans has been battling plantar fasciitis in his left foot all season, a painful condition that is slowing his game and frustrating him. Not that it really showed on Monday when he dropped 32 on the Clippers, but he has missed games and seen a foot specialist due to the pain. Pain that has…

  8. Tyreke Evans says he will not play All-Star weekend

    A combination of injuries — physical and emotional — have crippled Tyreke Evans‘ season. Plantar fasciitis, one of the NBA’s most unfortunate, nagging injuries, has hindered Evans throughout the year, and made sure that the reigning Rookie of the Year would not be selected to this year’s All-Star Game. Regardless, Evans is a shoe-in for…

  9. Other rookies think John Wall is good, too

    Sep 19, 2010, 10:47 AM EDT

    It’s not just you, me and every scout on the planet that thinks John Wall is going to be very good. So do his fellow rookies. During the rookie photo shoot last month, the league’s rookies took a survey about their expectations for the coming year (and John Schuhmann of NBA.com had the results). The…

  10. It's official: Tyreke Evans is your Rookie of the Year

    Apr 29, 2010, 4:51 PM EDT

    We’ve known this since Tom Ziller broke the story Monday. Well, we’ve really known since February. But now it is official: Sacramento’s Tyreke Evans is your rookie of the year. Evans received 67 first-place votes from the writers and media who cast these votes. Golden State’s Stephen Curry finished second and Milwaukee’s Brandon Jennings finished…

  11. Report: Tyreke Evans to be named Rookie of the Year

    Apr 27, 2010, 9:46 AM EDT

    It would not be a surprise — after all he was the leading candidate for most of the year — but now it appears to be reality. Tom Ziller at Sactown Royalty is reporting that Tyreke Evans will be named NBA Rookie of the Year. We’re good with this, as this blog has been home…

  12. Tyreke Evans is all kinds of special, in case you didn't notice

    Mar 11, 2010, 9:41 AM EDT

    From the Sacramento Bee: “It would seem easy for one to be a bit conceited with 5,000 cutouts of his face throughout the stands. But that’s not Evans’ personality. And he was ready for the ribbing he took from his teammates. “It looked pretty ugly,” said forward Carl Landry with a laugh.” Tyreke Evans is…
