Al Horford for Rookie of the Year
 
http://www.nba.com/rookies/rankings.html

Right now he's ranked ahead of Kevin Durant. If he keeps putting up high scoring and rebounding numbers, along with leading his team to the playoffs, then I think he could realistically beat out Durant for the award. What are your thoughts for his rookie season so far? A man among boys in his rookie class? I think the center spot is very hard to come in right away and play, as most of your veteran opponents already have seasoned bodies and are generally stronger than you are. That to me is a more impressive feat than Durant and his low field goal and 3-point percentages. I think Horford could be scoring in the mid to high teens if he played on Seattle team too, and he'd have a higher field goal percentage, as well.

Yeah Durant shouldn't win it when he's playing so inefficiently.

Perhaps with another team under another coach the most talented player (durant) would win the ROY...

but Horford deserves it because he's more consistent

Ah, I see you got unbanned. Ready to tear it up with the conspiracies in the OCL again?

we're talking about Kevin Durant right now.

I'm not here to "tear it up" on conspiracies whatever that means.

Okay.... Well go Horford then. I thought you were going to keep talking about the conspiracies in the OCL. Haven't seen you here in a while and just figured I'd mention it here, my bad.

I'd vote for Horford. I think it'll end up close. If Durant was shooting 44%-45%, then it'd probably be a no-brainer. I just started a NBA2k8 franchise with a frontcourt of Al Horford and Al Jefferson. Double Al's kicking ass.

Well, Horford wound up getting a ton of votes, but Durant won fairly easier than some Horford fans wanted him to

This was easily Durant. He has a better performance than Horford.

i'm a huge fan of horford and although he was incredibly consistent throughout the season, i can't complain much with durant winning the award (although i was optimistically hoping for maybe co-RotYs :rolleyes: ). after watching his play in the celtics series though, i am really excited to see how much he improves next season.

Horford is a good big man and will make it to a couple of all star games in his career. but Durant is just the better player to me
