    Evans was the best player on his team as a Rookie, and lead all rookies in the most important stats. You can't be more deserving to win ROY.

    I'm a little lost as to why team record is such an important factor in MVP but has little importance for ROY.
    It shouldn't for either one.

    The MVP voting makes no sense most of the time.

    I've got to say Jennings was equally deserving. Maybe statistically he was worse, but hes a better point guard, and he plays better on an actual team. Hes a real PG, where Tyreke is a SG with nice vision.

    So, since when did the rookie of the year award become the "point guard of the year" award? Ok, BJ is more of a PG than Evans, while Evans splits minutes at both guard positions. So?

    Tyreke played PG, for at least half the game. And what I'm also trying to say is that Tyreke might look better, but might not be capable of playing in a winning environment. He is a ballhog, and IF he was in a winning situations his stats definitely wouldn't look like what they were.

    Wade is a combo guard who dominates the ball. Go tell him he can't win.

    Not a surprise, think it should have been a really tight 3 player race though. Great rookie class in the end (when you think also Flynn, Blair, Budinger, Collison, Thornton, Jerebko, Lawson, etc.).

    Stephen Curry deserved it. He's a ridiculous shooter and tyreke evans is not that good. It's all the media. None of the awards in the NBA mean shit. That's why steve nash got mvp 2x. it's cuz all the voters, most of who never even set foot on a basketball court, hear how hes such a great passer and just have their mind made up at the start of the season. That's really what happened with evans. 20 games into the season, they had already made their minds up. 20 5 5 who gives a shit. It's not like any of his assists or rebounds are truly impressive dam. passes to 3 point shooter and they make it. its all on them. and thats all the kings can do is shoot 3s and thats why they got just barely above 20 wins.

    Are you just trying to bait reactions out of people with that ridiculous shit? Because there's no way you're actually serious. I'll bite. Above all the bullshit that you threw out against Tyreke, how the hell are you throwing out the wins argument when you're trying to make a point in favor of Curry?

    If you're (probably) a W's fan, how're you making that argument? Because you guys finished with 26 wins over the Kings' 25? +1 in the win column should win you the award over a body of 20.5.5 work through an entire season (and not just the half season that you're banking Curry's case on)?

    Tyreke is not a ball hog at all. He attacks the basket at will and either goes for the finish or dishes to an open teammate. I've seen him play all year, on TV, and live... and he is not a ball hog.

    Mayo and Steph did good but Evans clearly was the best rookie.

    For anyone who doubts Tyreke:

    The guy comes into the NBA and shoots more layups than ANYONE in the league, that shouldn't even be possible.

    He's the real deal.
