The Rookie of the Year Award will be given to Tyreke Evans of the Sacramento Kings later this week.
Milwaukee Bucks Head Coach Scott Skiles believes his rookie point guard, Brandon Jennings, should have won the award. However, Skiles was more than understanding on why the voters chose Evans.
"Those [Jennings, Evans, Stephen Curry] were the three guys that stood out," Skiles said prior to Game 5 against the Hawks. "Each person that votes has their own criteria. All I can say is, I find it hard to believe there's any rookie that has been more valuable to their team than Brandon has been."
"But how can you argue with what Tyreke did or what Curry did," he said. "Those guys had great years as well."
