Rookie of the Year 2012-13
Who has the biggest chance to win it over Davis?
Bradley Beal is a solid player with the worth ethic to become great, it'll be nice to see him improve throughout the course of the season, and years to come.
Lillard. He put up 21 pts and 8 assist against Utah tonight.
its gotta be lillard.
a 22 y.o. PG who will get plenty of minutes as one of the primary ball handlers/playmers for the blazers.
hes the starting pg in portland and gonna have the ball in his hands alot i think hell team well with la
Definitely Lillard. He's going to start for Portland, and we already know he can light it up from anywhere. Not only can he score, but he is an underrated passer. Now in the NBA, he has solid players to pass to such as Wes Matthews, Batum, Aldridge, Hickson, and fellow draftee Meyers Leonard.
I think Lillard will have a very good season, and he honestly has a good chance of beating Anthony Davis for that rookie of the year honor.
My sleeper pick is Jae Crowder, he started yesterday with Dirk out...he can play numerous positions
Lillard is Davis' only real competition for the award.
But Brad Beal, MKG, Dion Waiters, Barnes, Robinson, and Drummond will all have big years.
"Lillard is Davis' only real competition for the award"
I think it should be the other way, Davis is the only real competition and the one who MAYBE can stop Lillard from getting the ROY. But I don't think that'll happen. Lillard is going to be ROY and been saying this since before the draft
Okay whatever Anthony Davis was still the first pick in the draft, the most talented player in the draft, and therefore the frontrunner to win ROY.
i was born across tthe sreet, so liliard is my pick
It's hard to argue against guys like Davis, MKG, Beal, and Lillard because of the amount if minutes they should get. To give you some dark horses with different names you could say Sullinger, Henson, Lamb, or Jones. They could all have significant years but I think the favorite has to be Lillard.
Lillard and Beal look like they will get some serious considderation.
But if I were to put money on anyone other that Davis it would be Lillard.
The way Jonas Valenciunas is playing right now, I think he will at least be in the dicussion by the end of the season as well.
