20 of 35 ESPN experts think Anthony Davis will be NBA Rookie of the Year

The other 15 are wrong.

The one guy who picked Jared Sullinger has lost his damn mind.

Damian Lillard is the second favorite with 11 of the 35 expert picks. Andre Drummond impressed two experts and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist received one vote.

Don’t sleep on Bradley Beal. He’s my non-Anthony Davis pick.

    He’s definitely a lock for NBA ROY. I just hope my boy Austin Rivers realizes that he can turn NOLA into lob city if he gets his mind right.

    Andre Drummond? Seriously. I’d go with Jared Sullinger before him.

    #8 – I completely agree. espn is taking over our lives. I appreciate their love for AD in this poll – but I hate how they drive national discussion on topics they want to talk about. The same subjects are covered across their various platforms. Hard to take them seriously when you know that a producer / director is telling the on air ‘talent’ what to and not to say (looking at you, stephen a smith).

    Drew, you just seriously called Dr Jack Ramsay “the one guy”? Yeah, he’s way off on Sully, but the man’s a living legend. You’re right about Brad Beal though, he’d certainly be my pick for 2nd place.

    How do you not know who Dr Jack Ramsay is? I have a hard time believing he would pick Sullinger. I do not believe it. I am basically calling Bullshit on this.

    even with alzheimer’s, dr. jack knows more about basketball than the rest of us combined. If he says it, you’d better at least consider the possibility.

    Andre Drummond is a slightly more skilled DeAndre Jordan. Not gonna win ROY. Lillard very well could.

    Sullinger will be better than most people think, but he’s not going to put up the numbers to get in the conversation, especially with the addition of Jason Terry and the points you’re going to get from Garnett, Pierce and Rondo. He might start, though.

    I think its funny how two years ago Harrison Barnes was the next jordan and now he doesnt get a single vote for ROY.
