NEW YORK -- The NBA has taken away Charlotte Bobcats broadcaster Dell Curry's rookie of the year vote because his son is among the leading candidates for the award.


D. Curry

S. Curry
Curry's son, Stephen Curry, is averaging 17.2 points and 5.9 assists per game for Golden State. He and Kings guard Tyreke Evans, who is averaging 20.3 points and 5.8 assists, are considered the front-runners to be top rookie.

NBA spokesman Tim Frank says Dell Curry will be allowed to vote for all the other postseason awards, but the league did not want to put him in an awkward position with the rookie award.

The New York Times first reported the NBA's decision regarding Curry's vote.

Curry played 16 seasons in the NBA with five teams.

Franks says the league will replace Curry with another voter who covers the Bobcats, but has not picked a replacement yet.

this was probably a smart move. If he does vote for Curry (rightfully so); idiots will go on how he only voted Steph cuz he is his son [especially if Curry somehow wins].

You would honestly not vote for your own kid, especially with that kind of talent?

I agree. Because if Curry does win, there will always be that bias.
