Most have Tyreke Evans winning the award, but B-Diddy tells the Journal Sentinel that his “little brother” Jennings should get it, largely due to his leading role in the Bucks’ surprising success this season: “Baron Davis knows a few things about playing the point guard position. So when the Los Angeles Clippers’ star says he thinks Bucks guard Brandon Jennings should be the league’s rookie of the year, you listen. ‘I think Brandon should be the rookie of the year because it’s all about winning in this league,’ Davis said after the Clippers’ practice session Tuesday. ‘He’s been winning, and he’s been doing a good job of leading his team. He’s had the numbers and all the accolades. He’s definitely the point guard of the future in this league.’ Jennings was the early favorite for the rookie of the year award, after he piled up 55 points against Golden State in his seventh game with the Bucks. But a prolonged shooting slump helped push him down in the rankings of many observers, and Sacramento’s Tyreke Evans moved to the front of the line.”
