Default 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.
