Hollinger's Opinion of Rose's ROY Chances

This will be a short post but here's a question that I ran by Hollinger of ESPN on his live chat:

Dils: After watching Rose stare down the barrel of losing his chance at ROY against Westbrook in the first half of last nights game to watching him put the team on his back, rain jumpers, and go perfect from the floor in the second half, while also improving the Bulls chances of making the playoffs, Isn't it safe to say Rose has locked up ROY now?

 

His Response:

John Hollinger: (3:16 PM ET ) Rose helped his odds greatly with that second half last night after he had five TOs in the first. I still think Brook Lopez has been better, but he hasn't been on many voters' radars.

You know, I'm not sure what else Rose has to prove to win this award. I've been frustrated with his lack of aggresiveness at times and his defense is atrocious at other times, but last nights game is one of those moments that eases a lot of fears and answers a lot of question about whether this kid is going to be the star we think he can and will be. I think the jury is still out on what type of player he'll be but one thing is for sure: At 20 years old, playing the toughest position on the court, in one of the toughest cities to play in, while also being from that city, this kid has exceeded my expectations and deserves Rookie of The Year.
