Is Townes a lock for ROY? Jahil averages more points per36/game, but on a lower FG%. Kristap is the only one of the three with a 3pt shot. Townes is killin' them both on the glass: 10pg/12per36 to 7/8 (Jahil) and 7.5/9.5 (Kristop).


Looks like all three are a lock for the All-Rookie team, but who else is on your first and second All-Rookie teams?

Myles Turner? Nikola Jokic?

Towns for ROY and it won't be close but that's obvious.

All Rookie 1st Team

Russell
Jokic
Porzingis
Okafor
Towns

Not even close. KAT is unanimous

Porz will get 2nd, Okafor 3rd

Towns won before the AS break. Have to say he has been nothing short of impressive, i didnt think he would be this good this fast.

As for the all-rook first team its clear Towns, Okafor, and Porz will lead the way and i think its a toss up who will join them. Maybe Russell and Booker at the guard spots? Do they do positions like the all nba teams?

Towns is on another level. KP Okafor Russell and jokic would be my guess if they don't worry about position for first team.

Well to put it simply it's called all rookie team not 5 best rookies, otherwise they would just take the top 5 vote getters for ROY.

Towns easily wins it. Hell if anyone else gets another vote i'd be shocked

Towns attempts about 25 percent as many threes as Porzingis, but shoots a slightly better percentage, so I wouldn't say he doesn't have a three-point shot. They're both great, but Towns is clearly better. Who thought he'd come in and immediately outshine Anthony Wiggins?

Towns, Jokic, Porzingis, Okafor and Turner are my picks and I think they're pretty damn obvious. I can understand an argument for someone like Russell over Jokic or Turner because of minutes, but that's about it.

Towns rookie season is nestled comfortably in between Ewing/Zo and Shaq/Hakeem's rookie seasons. Incredible start to a career. And to think I got to see him play in High School scouting him. Pretty cool.

KAT
Okafor
Porzingis
Jokic
Russell

No way should Turner get in over Russell. He has only played 2 months of basketball, averaged 11/5 in january and 13/6 in february while D'Angelo has put up 13/3/4 throughout the year just keeps on improving because of the starting spot.

Towns is a lock for ROY.

Oak, KP and Russell will probably fill up the other top 4 voting slots. I'm curious about Myles Turner though. He has put up very respectable rookie numbers for the guy drafted 11. What do you guys make of him? I have only seen him play in one game.

Towns has had it on lock for awhile now.

comparison between Shaq, Hakeem, Towns, Zo, Ewing, and Duncan as rookies.

That is sick company.

Looking forward to the future match ups of Giannis versus KAT. Giannis played some center last night for a little bit since were without Henson with sore back.

Kp gave it a good run in first half but now he's tired no one else can go against towns now it's his to win.

Towns easy followed by KP. However, Russell has the best single game as a rookie this season so far.

Towns ROY, but I think Nance would beat out Porzingas for the PF spot on the all rookie team, and Jokic would probably beat them both out if we're not adhering strictly to positions. Winslow would be the SF. The guards are really behind the curve compared to the bigs in this class.

No... No he didnt... He wasnt close... he had a great 2 week stretch but has been bad the majority of the season... he has the most potential next to russ but he was never close to towns even if knick fans were in a thread screaming it after 3 really good games... he was never close....

Towns






Oka
KP















Russ

I suspect most of PSD will rank them
1) Towns 29.3
2) Okafor 25.2
3) Porzingas 22.6
4) Russell 20.2
Just a guess.
