Rose & Mayo Named Rookies Of The Month

Derrick RoseDerrick Rose and OJ Mayo were named Rookies of the Month in their respective conferences. These are the two guys who everyone believes will battle it out for ROY honors at the end of the season. Derrick Rose leads all rookie in the Eastern Conference with 18ppg, 6 dimes and 38mpg. He’s also scored in double figures in all but one game this season.  






OJ Mayo leads all Western Conference rookies and his own team in scoring at 21.9ppg. It’s the second Mayohighest first month rookie scoring average since AI averaged 23.4ppg. He’s scored 30pts in 4 games this season and he’s scored in double figures in every game he’s played. Given his play and the teams recordit seems that D Rose is the frontrunner but there are a lot of games still to play.

I just have one question though…where the heck is Michael Beasley? Supposedly he was more NBA ready than both of these guys and he hasn’t even been mentioned in any ROY conversations. Hmmm…
