Many thought this would be no contest when Greg Oden was declared out for the season. Durant has struggled in his rookie campaign and his teams record shows his struggles. I still believe he's done enough to win the ROY honor. Who's your Rookie of the Year?

I would say Carl Landry should win ROY, but it will probably be Durant.

Durant probably, but i think Horford deserves some props for averaging almost 10 rebounds as a rookie.

Durant is going to win it because his name sounds more than the other guys. I know his team doesn't have a good record but he is only a rookie. Maybe next year they would play better

Everyone decided it would be Oden long before the draft ever happened. When Oden went down, everyone instantly changed their minds to Durant and have not changed them again the slightest bit since then.

Here's my predictions for the all-rookie team:
First Team
PG: Mike Conley
SG: Juan Carlos Navarro
SF: Kevin Durant
PF: Carl Landry
C: Al Horford
Second Team
PG: Javaris Crittenton
SG: Nick Young
SF: Al Thornton
PF: Yi Jianlian
C: Joakim Noah

Durant because of his scoring average. For all the hype of him being an "all-around" player though, I have found his lack of passing and rebounding skills to be very disappointing.

This is the most overrated draft I can recall. I remember several media outlets comparing it to the likes of '84, '96, and '03 beforehand. Ridiculous.

Al thornton. The only reason he's not averaging 20+ points is because of his injury at the beginning of the season...he's more physical then Durant, and is a better all around player.

I've seen a bit of Thornton on DirecTV and he has been very impressive from most of what I've observed.

How about Luis Scola? I don't think he should/will win, but he has been pretty good

I like Scola. He's more of a role player guy though - an energetic Bo Outlaw type who is a catalyst, gets things moving on the floor, etc., but doesn't have the gaudy scoring average of a Durant.

no, and probably wont, but he was a big(ger) part of that 22 game win streak, and for that, I think he'll be up near, if not in, the top 5

Any more opinions?
