ROY Race tightening up?

Here are the numbers as of now? less then 5 games left

Curry Vs Evans

Western conf. Rookie of the month awards: 3(last 3) Vs (2) = Curry

Team Record: 23-54 Vs 24-54 = Push

Points: 16.6 Vs 20.0 = Evans

Assist: 5.8 Vs 5.8 = Push

Rebounds: 4.3 Vs 5.2 = Evans

Steals: 1.8 Vs 1.5 = Curry

Shooting fg/3pt/ft: 45.8/42.9/87.5 Vs 45.6/26.1/74.5 = Curry

Many People say Reke is the Roy but Curry has out played him head up for most of the yr 3-2 and has best him in more categories...Points per game is the major diff. With about 5 games left, who pulls is it out? The strong starter or big finisher.....My guess Curry gets it or Co Roy

seriously?? Evans has put up

seriously?? Evans has put up the best rookie numbers since LeBron and now joins MJ, LeBron, and The Big O as the only rookies to average 20, 5, and 5. Reke gets it and in my opinion Brandon Jennings should finish second for leading the Bucks to the playoffs.

Jennings Def

In this case i have to throw all the stats away, if you have seen a bucks game this year you will see that Jennings should get it. He makes all his teammates better

Nice quadruple post! Tyreke

Nice quadruple post!

Tyreke is far and away the ROY

I like Jennings but come on, defense and the addition of Salmons to pick up the scoring slack is the reason why the Bucks are winning as of late. Jennings is playing the same way he was when they were losing left and right.

Plus you say that Curry is finishing stronger but look at Tyreke's splits:

Pre All-star- 20.3pts 4.8reb 5.2ast 1.6stl

Post All-star- 19.2pts 6.3reb 7.3ast 1.4stl

Yeah, I have to give it to

Yeah, I have to give it to Evans. Jennings might be leading his team to the playoffs, but you guys talk as if he's carrying them on his back. Salmons was a great acquisition, Bogut has been playing at nearly an All-Star level, Delfino and Ilyasova are playing well, and Luke Ridnour is an excellent back-up point guard. Jennings' field goal percentage is down in the mid-30s, while Tyreke is having one of the best rookie seasons in NBA history.

My opinion Evans should win

My opinion Evans should win or share it with jennings or jennings coming second he's leading a team to the playoffs who where in the lottery last year and i know his scoring has been up down all year but he's been scoring lately and he's a great playmaker curry deserves alot of consideration as well

mouchy, here you

mouchy, here you go...

Curry:

Pre- 14.8pts 3.8reb 4.9ast 1.9stl 2.7TO
Post- 20.7pts 5.3reb 7.8ast 1.7stl 3.9TO

Jennings:

Pre- 16.9pts 3.5reb 6.2ast 1.3stl 2.6TO
Post- 13.1pts 3.6reb 5.1ast 1.3stl 2.1TO

So both Curry and Tyreke have been finishing strong with similar post all-star numbers. I will give it to the guy who has done it all year. Jennings' numbers are down quite a bit while his team has been on a tear.

CURRY HANDS DOWN

Curry plays for a team that actually has another player on it that can score (Monta AND Maggete)....tyreke does not (Carl landry or beno?... please). Hence the reason that tyreke has to score more points. Both teams suck...i think curry pulls clearly ahead by the end of the season.

Assists??

Their assists are the same you idiot... Curry is the 3rd or 4th scoring option on the team and he is still putting up those numbers....LEGIT

I think it's reke, he has

I think it's reke, he has been the leader of that team the entire year and didn't ever really have a slump. Now as for who i think will be better 3 years from now i say curry. I really didn't think he would be that good in the league but like so many times before i was very wrong.

Jennings has shown to be a pretty good lead guard but the only argument he has for ROY is that he is in the playoffs but that is because the most improved players of the year Andrew Bogut.

Tyreke should win ROY. Even

Tyreke should win ROY. Even though Curry has been playing alot better after the all star break he has not been that much better than Tyreke. Tyreke is still putting up great numbers but he's been doing it all year long unlike Curry.

When you guys say reke has

When you guys say reke has been better all yr long, in actuality it was just the first month...Curry started slow 11ppg...picked it up in Dec...and has been clearly better since january not just the all-star break. Reke has beenthe most consistent but curry has outplayed him for a greater part of the season..Thats fact, look at the Rook of the month awards

bribar...what point are you

bribar...what point are you making? If Curry is the 3rd option on his team then his assist numbers should be way higher then a guy who is the first option, right?

And no need for name calling kid.

Evans- pts: 20 Reb: 5.2 Ast:

Evans- pts: 20 Reb: 5.2 Ast: 5.8
Curry- Pts: 16.6 Reb: 4.3 Ast: 5.8
Jennings: Pts: 15.6 Reb: 3.5 Ast: 5.8
Assists are a wash obviously but Evans assist numbers have really increased since the Martin/Landry trade as he finally has someone in the post. Also it's not his fault most of the team can't make a bucket when he gives them the ball. Curry is a very underrated passer IMO and would have more assists if he had a low post presence but that's not how they play and if they did his ppg would definitely drop. His ppgs are like homerun numbers in Yankee stadium, inflated because of where he's playing.
Jennings has the lowest numbers, but he has the most talented team of the 3. Playoff contention usually is only factored in MVP races not ROY races so I'm not sure why the Bogut led Bucks team making the playoffs in the EAST has any effect on the discussion.
People have been discussing Evans being the only talent on the team so he has to score more and the opposing argument is Curry in Nelson's system. Teams that play Sac focus on Evans every game, always putting their best defender from the 1-3 position on him and the dude still does what he does even though everyone knows it's coming.
As far as the system argument for Curry let's bring in Monte Ellis. How many guys that score 25.5 ppg are untradable? His contract is large but if he was as talented as most guys scoring 25 a game a lot of teams would want him. Everyone in the game knows a system can really improve a players stats, certain players fit where others don't.
If you switched these guys around, Evans doesn't fit in the GS system like Curry does and I don't think Curry would be as successful as the #1 option on the Kings team.
I give the offensive edge to Evans while others will give it to Curry so let's just call it even for argument's sake.
Defense. Curry doesn't know what it means and may never know if he stays under Nelson. Evans on the other hand is the Kings best defender in a lot of ways. I'm not saying he's going to be on the all defensive team but he is an above average defender and for a rookie he is an excellent defender. He has his lapses and struggles against certain types of players but there is no argument he is by far the best defender of the 3.
Lastly Evans has hit several game winners for the Kings this season and has made a few defensive stops to end a close game. He is easily the MVP for his team while Jennings certainly isn't and Curry is probably #2. Considering these teams talent levels that could come into consideration. Evans is the guy that has to take over for the Kings to win on most nights.
All of that said I'm not sure why this is even a discussion 20/5/5 speaks for itself.

If it's all about the stats

If it's all about the stats then Curry wins it outright!! The only thing Evan's has statistically on Curry is points (which Curry is closing in on), rebounds, and minutes....oh wait...minutes too???? Point proven!!!!!!!!!
