Stuckey is 2nd Team All-Rookie

New, comments

The NBA revealed it's All-Rookie teams today, and Rodney Stuckey earned a spot on the second team, though he did receive five first-place votes. All in all, being included among the league's top 10 rookies is a pretty nice accomplishment for a guy drafted 15th overall, especially when you consider he played behind a pair of All-Stars, missed 25 games with a broken hand and started only two regular season games.

I'm not surprised (yet still disappointed) to see that Arron Afflalo didn't receive a single vote. Strictly looking at the numbers I can see why he was overlooked, but he deserves a lot of credit for cracking Detroit's rotation from Day 1 when a lot of people figured he'd be riding the pine or even spending much of the year in the D-League.

For the record, the first team was Kevin Durant, Al Horford, Al Thornton, Luis Scola and Jeff Green. The rest of the second team included Jamario Moon, Thaddeus Young, Juan Carlos Navarro and Carl Landry.
