That's who deserved it. McMillan is a good coach, too.

Kudos.

if Bargnani doesnt get injured the last month of the season, he wins it. He helped that team win its division. However BRoy had a great season as well and deserves it.

No way. Bargnani played well but Brandon was clearly the best Rookie all throughout the year.

I agree with 23pdg no way Bargnani gets R.O.Y. even is he doesn't get injured. Its not even close, Brandon Roy is rookie of the year.

Brandon Roy missed more than 20 games because of injury. And...he deserved the award.

The way I see it, Brandon Roy is viewed by the Blazers -- who are REALLY trying hard to shed that "Jail Blazers" image and have jettisoned much of the executive branch from that era -- is viewed as the guy who's eventually going to be the great saviour of the franchise. I mean, he might not lead them back to the playoffs immediately, but in a way he symbolizes a turning point for the Blazers, and not just in what he brings on the court but off of it as well.

As for Morrison, I wonder if it would have been any different for him had he been drafted by a team other than the struggling Charlotte Bobcats, which seem to have some issues. For one, the city of Charlotte still seems down on the NBA since the way George Shinn left town several years ago (and was it really wise to put another team in that market?); people seem to stay away from Bobcats games in droves; I don't realistically see Michael Jordan turning it around given his history as a team executive with the DC Wizards; and then there's coaching ... I'm interested to see who they hire to replace Bickerstaff. Among those who have interviewed: Stan Van Gundy, Paul Silas.

CLT seems mixed up and crazy, maybe that's not a good sitch for a rook to be in, especially one with HUGE expectations and quasi rock star status as Morrison had (I don't remember Okafor, Felton or May having the same kind of "cult of personality" if you will, that Morrison had leading up to the draft). No knock on Morrison here, just an observation.

Brandon is an excellent overall player who seems to bring whatever is needed, be it scoring, offense, rebounding even or assists. He is a very unselfish and team-oriented player. And seemingly, a fine young man on top of it. Congrats to Brandon. He earned it.
