Durant Wins Rookie of the Year

Apparently Durant will be presented the award tomorrow afternoon at some point. I guess no one's really surprised are they?

Durant led all rookies in scoring, assists and free-throw percentage, and will become the first Sonic to receive the honor.

Moon got 5th (granted with only 7 3rd place votes, but still). Hard to argue against the top 4, so yeah.

bullshit!

durant didn't do anything. he was handed a bulk load of shots and hit them at a crappy percentage. they really need to fix this award so it goes to the actually rookie who performs the best opposed to the rookie who scores the most.

What did you expect? They made a habit out of giving the MVP in the 90's to a guy who wasn't even the most valuable player on his own team let alone the league.

Yeah, I believe he is eligible considering he's never played a professional game yet.

Yep you're right doc. According to NBA rules, if the player did not play a game in his first year in the NBA, he is still qualified and eligible to win the Rookie of the Year Award the following year.
