Lopez was the only one that should have been in the discussion vs Rose. Lopez was solid all year until the end where he was very very good. Westbrook was allowed to freelance on a really bad team and he shot a really low percentage and didnt show much PG skills until the end of the year.
Love only played real good once Jefferson went out, and again on a really bad team. You put Rose in either of those situations hes putting up 20 and 8 instead of his 16 and 6.
The difference between the rookies is Rose WON the Bulls a ton of games this year especially in the 4th qtr. Hes a gamebreaker and he fully deserved this award. He helped his team get into the playoffs and he was the most consistant rookie all year.
