View Full Version : Blake Griffin 2 possible awards question

01-05-2011, 02:17 PM
Is it possible to win both Rookie of the Year and Comeback player of the year?

To win comeback player of the year is usually a player that had been injured for an entire or most of season or someone that was just awful. Griffin was injured all year last year but never player a regular season game before this year. I think there is an interesting gray area here and I wonder what your thoughts are.

Would he qualify or comeback player of the year or does he not qualify because he never actually played a meaningful game?

The NBA does not have a comeback player of the year award. At least not since 1986.

Oh did not know that

He'll get the ROY award

its most improved player, and even if it were comeback imo he would not qualify.

he isn't "coming back" to anything. this is the first time he's ever played in the nba. doesn't make sense.

no I think he can only win the rookie of year one and not the comeback player

He can win the guy with the most dunks and double double?

He didn't play a game last year, so there is no stat to improve on.

No one can win those 2 awards at the same year; they are mutually exclusive.

Only if he gets more double doubles:
