Part of the fun of the NBA Rookie Photo Shoot -- aside from the impromptu dunk contests -- is finding out what the rookies think of each other. John Schuhmann of NBA.com has a rookie survey he gives the new players and asks them to pick the rookie of the year, who will have the best career, who their favorite player is, who the funniest rookie is and much more. This year's rookie survey has the players glowing about the second pick in the draft.
Schuhmann released the results of the survey on Wednesday and the players overwhelmingly picked Jabari Parker of the Milwaukee Bucks to not only be named the Rookie of the Year for the 2014-15 season but to also have the top career. He received 52.8 percent of the vote for ROY with Doug McDermott and Andrew Wiggins as the second highest at 8.3 percent each. He also received 45.9 percent of the vote for having the best career with McDermott coming in second at 13.5 percent. Wiggins tied with Zach LaVine for fourth at 5.4 percent.
Who will be the 2014-15 Rookie of the Year?
1: Jabari Parker, Milwaukee -- 52.8 percent
T-2: Doug McDermott, Chicago -- 8.3 percent
Andrew Wiggins, Cleveland -- 8.3 percent
T-4: Shabazz Napier, Miami -- 5.6 percent
Nerlens Noel, Philadelphia -- 5.6 percent
Elfrid Payton, Orlando -- 5.6 percent
Which rookie will have the best career?
1: Jabari Parker, Milwaukee -- 45.9 percent
2: Doug McDermott, Chicago -- 13.5 percent
3: T.J. Warren, Phoenix -- 8.1 percent
T-4: Zach LaVine, Minnesota -- 5.4 percent
Andrew Wiggins, Cleveland -- 5.4 percent
Looks like the rookies think highly of McDermott with him finishing 2nd in voting on both ROY and best career. I think if he continues to develop at the rate he has been, he has a shot at ROY but still optimistic about the best career. Overall, good sign for the bulls as he has opened alot of eyes thus far especially his fellow draft class. Thoughts?
