It’s safe to say this season’s ROY race will come down to two names. Who do you think will take it?
Who's your Rookie of the Year favorite?

voted griffin, i don’t care which one wins… as long as landry fields gets some recognition as steal of the draft, they should have a second round steal award
Blake. Not a bandwagonner, I thought he was gonna get it before the New York dunkfest. He’s been in the league a year, and gotten plenty of experience just by sitting on the bench. He was more prepared for it than anyone in the 2010 Class, and his athleticism will surely get him to the top. Once he learns a few post moves, and becomes more aggressive (LOL)then it’s all over
I second Groves on that Landry Fields bit. NY showing great picks on recent drafts. Landry and Toney last year.
hoping bledsoe elevates his play again soon
I believe I had Blake Griffin as a SLAM DUNK for ROY before the season started in the last ROY polladaday. Nothing has changed, I still feel that way.
Landry Fields should finish in the top 3 in ROY voting this year. Nice pick Donnie!
Where’s the co-ROY option? I can’t decide between those two, and they’ll both be on 20-win teams so..
John Wall will be way better at his position and he is helping his team win right now so I don’t what you guys are thinking
Blake Griffin is already good at his position and he is helping his team win right now so I don’t know what you are thinking.
I voted other just because I’m hurting right now. My ROY hopeful was Demarcus Cousins, I figured that Blake would come out storming but that DMC would make it at least a competition, who knew that foul trouble would kill that before it started?
I still have hope and I’m keeping the blinders on until March at least.
i had Demarcus at the start too… still a big demarcus fan. i prefer wall… but griffin is a beast.. i’m agreeing with a co-ROY wall and griffin (shu, you opened my eyes)
Leonel what’s the clippers record
and the wiz’s?
Both Blake and John are playing great basketball right now… Really impressive stuff for their debut seasons. The race is closer than you think, too–John Wall is averaging pretty much 18 and 9 right now. Those are All-Star PG numbers. And I wouldn’t be surprised if Griff ends up cracking the All-Star team this year.
Blake has been a beast, but Wall is putting up numbers AND winning games, something you can’t say about Blake and the Clips.
Hands down its griffin. Untouchable like elliot ness!
John Wall has twice as much skill and knowledge as Blake Griffin. Stick me in griffins body I’d be dunking on everyone to. Wall just has more talent and potential than him. And you don’t have to worry about Wall ending his season hitting his head on the rim.
Smills,ur comment doesn’t make sense. Stick me n wall’s body and I’d b doin the stuff he does as well. Why u ask? Cuz it’s STILL wall’s body. Besides, griff will get better as well. He’ll b a 20+/10+ forward next year. Wall will improve as well. But 4 this yr,this yr alone,griff is ur ROY. Deliverin @ss whoopins and staying humble and classy(no dougies here)n the process
wall is nice and all, but ugh, this was the dumbest poll ever, at least for now. but i dont see blake slowing down. he will finish at about 22 11. blake is above a co roy, at least so far.
Hammer, my point was Blake has a big athletic body and little skill/knowledge whereas wall has a medium athletic body with lots of skill/knowledge. Sorry that didn’t get across for you. Sure Blake is gonna improve, so is wall. In my personal opinion wall has more raw potential but we could debate that all day. And hold up, the dougie isn’t classy? It’s hilarious, fun and shows off his personality. I love it and half the league is doing it. I wish more players did things like this. Im one of those guys that gets excited everytime lebron does a chalk clap or dwade pulls up on the rim.
John Wall is so hungry for numbers- biggest hog.
Blakey ‘the beast’ Griffin for ROY
+1 on S-Mills.
The only reason i vote wall is the way Blake plays look like he be done before the all star break….. Otherwise he will be the ROY!!!!!
As a diehard UK fan, my heart says Wall but my head says Griffin. That kid is just amazing.
flight9, how exactly does blake look like “he be” done before the all star break??? i think he will keep going, for many years.
Griffin is looking really good, but I think we have to give Wall some extra credit cause he’s a point guard, so he has more responsibilty.
becoz he is jumping on all people like its a dunk contest. THAT IS ALL MY OPINION. GETTING INJURED. HOPE NOT COZ IM A FAN.
I need advice. Who should I vote in for the two starting forward spots for All-Star game for the West?
S-Mills – did you just say Wall had a ‘medium athletic’ body? Erm, no. Just.. no. Dude’s one of the 5 most athletic PG’s in the League. As a rookie.
Blake Griffin is giving John Wall a facial in this poll. smh
@Hursty Sorry I meant like medium sized athletic body. I definitely realize he’s abnormally athletic. I just didn’t want to say small athletic body because he has excellent size for a point guard as well.
Blake shouldnt be an all-star people have isolated them from his team and he isnt that great. He hasnt made anybo9dy better. Idk think what you want. But lebron didnt make all star game rookie year..
