A lithuanian basketball site wrote that JV has set a personal goal for the season: to win the ROY trophy. I'm not sure it's really realistic though, but then again, aim for the stars if you fall short you will still land on the moon
I beleive he is currently ranked 5th in nba.com's rookie ladder. Ahead of him are Lillard, and A. Davis along with a couple of second round guys. If JV can move up past them into the 3rd spot on the ladder it could be a dog fight for the number 1 spot between those three. Obviously it's so early in the season, but all three are starters on their respective teams.
