NBA Awards: Rookie of the Year

Everyone keeps saying, this is an easy one: Brandon Roy. And then they move on. They are right that it is easy, but skipping over it ignores just how good this guy is. His 16/4/4 is certainly good, but a closer look shows that as he's gotten healthier, he's become a beast. His scoring average has gone up every month, and over his past 20 games he's been a 20/5/5 player shooting close to 50%. Roy isn't just the best of a shaky class of rookies, he's a stud.
