At the latest yearly SBNation hoops symposium (in Stockholm), my blogging cohorts and I agreed upon a user-driven end-of-season-awards extravaganza. This means you can choose the recipients, and as a bonus this keeps you from reading our played-out explanations over what makes a player 'valuable'.
Over the next six days, you will have the chance to vote on six key awards (MVP, Rookie of the Year, Defensive Player of the Year, Coach of the Year, 6th Man of the Year, and Most Improved Player). Each of our twelve sites will be posting open threads where you can cast your vote.
Each of the twelve sites will be posting an open thread for a different award over the next six days. You may vote at any of the 12 sites. (keep it to one vote(one site) for each award, plzzzz) For each category, we ask that you list your top 3 in order. First-place votes are worth 3 points, second-place 2, and third-place one.
The voting will close for each award on midnight Monday night. At that point, each site will tally up the points, and we will then add the totals of all twelve sites to figure out the winners of each category.
This is the thread for Rookie of the Year. Vote away.
