Evans received 67 first-place votes (491 points) from a panel of 123 sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States and Canada. Golden State’s Stephen Curry finished second with 391 points and Milwaukee’s Brandon Jennings finished third with 204 points. Players were awarded five points for each first-place vote, three points for each second-place vote and one point for each third-place vote.
“I felt like they were a little bit cocky,” Jennings said Sunday. “They came in like, ‘OK, it’s Milwaukee, we’re up 2-0.’ I mean, that’s just how I felt.

While I'm usually the first to call out a crappy commercial, I'm a big fan of this one. Despite the hype that has followed him for years, the fact that Brandon Jennings has spent the past two seasons hooping in Rome and Milwaukee means that he's still far from being a household names in most US markets.
