Moon named Rookie of the Month
Huh ... weird that I didn't hear about this on Friday when it was announced. :confused:

Anyhow, congrats to Jamario for being named Rookie of the Month in the Eastern Conference. :)

Moon helped the Raptors to an 8-5 record last month, posting averages of 8.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 1.7 assists a game. He had a .480 shooting percentage and led the team in blocked shots on five occasions.

Moon, 27, signed with Toronto in July. He will play in the rookie challenge game Feb. 15 in New Orleans during the all-star weekend festivities. Moon will also participate in the slam dunk competition.

Kevin Durant of the Seattle SuperSonics was named rookie of the month for the Western Conference.

Not the most stellar month but good for him. It's more good press for the Raps and maybe will inspire him to get on a hot streak or something :)

lately he was a bit off, maybe he's a distracted by this dunk contest. Hopefully he'll get back in groove, my fantasy team is sorely missing his blocks and rebounds ... :)

Jamario is going to grow a lot as a player over the next few months. His heart is obviously in the game, and he has the physical attributes. Starting for a competitive team will definitely make it easier to stay hungry and focused. I really think that he's still becoming comfortable with the speed and style of play in the NBA. I mean, he's held his own obviously, but I think he's yet to blossom.
