The NBA announced its All-Rookie teams yesterday, as voted on by the head coaches. Coaches were not permitted to vote for their own players, because they’d probably all pick their own players.

I might have elevated Moon over Thornton or Green for being a starter on a playoff team, but after the first three players, it’s really a crapshoot.

Horford was the only unanimous selection to the first team. Someone honestly thought that there were five rookies who had a better season than Durant. Two coaches didn’t even include Scola on their ballot, another cast him as a second teamer. Ridiculous to me, but who know what those individuals were thinking.
