    Default All-rookie team voting is rigged

    Ed Davis got snubbed from the All-Rookie Voting even though he had better stats than almost all the second team rooks.

    SOURCE:http://www.nba.com/2011/news/05/11/a...s=iref:nbahpt2

    Here are Eddy's stats compared to the other rooks:Ed Davis#32Forward
    PPG7.7 RPG7.10 APG0.6 EFF+ 13.02 Born: Jun 5, 1989
    Wesley Johnson#4Guard-Forward
    PPG9.0 RPG3.00 APG1.9 EFF+ 8.54 Born: Jul 11, 1987

    Derrick Favors#15Forward
    PPG6.8 RPG5.30 APG0.5 EFF+ 9.40 Born: Jul 15, 1991

    Paul George#24Forward
    PPG6.0 RPG5.00 APG1.0 EFF+ 9.20 Born: May 2, 1990

    Greg Monroe#10Center-Forward
    PPG9.4 RPG7.50 APG1.3 EFF+ 14.74 Born: Jun 4, 1990


    TBH I think the only one that actually deserves to be above Ed Davis is Greg Monroe, and even his stats are only slightly better than Davis, also Gary Neal shouldn't deserve First Team, he only did so well because the Spurs were able to spread the floor with their Big 3

    OK im done with me rant

    While I disagree with the snub as well, I am selfishly very glad. I have a feeling he will work his ass off for next season (whenever it is) and come back with something (more) to prove.

    It's not rigged, the people with votes are just stupid. I mean, Omer Asik got a first place vote. Like, seriously?

    i don't think that's out of place at all...asik was a key rotation player for the best team in the L. it ain't always about the stats...

    but anyway, thought this nugget from hollinger was interesting, 'cause, y'know, he hates the raptors & doesn't watch any games & all:

    'James (Detroit)


    Why wasn't Greg Monroe selected to the all NBA Rookie First Team?

    John Hollinger (3:56 PM)


    Because, I suspect, a lot of coaches "outsource" their votes for this stuff to PR directors and the like. Anyone who thinks Landry Fields or Gary Neal had a better rookie year than Monroe wasn't paying attention, but because Fields was in New York and got a lot of attention and Monroe was in Detroit and got none, it swung a bunch of voters who really should know better. Same goes for Ed Davis by the way -- it's ridiculous that he's not even on second team when he's better than two of the guys on the first team.'

    Motivation!? The only thing that this sort of thing motivates, is for players to move to larger markets so that they won't get snubbed. Look at Chris Bosh who made that, ridiculous/hilarious, video trying
