It'll be between Rose and Mayo. I think Orlando got a steal with Lee, hopefully he'll develop and Orlando doesn't trade him. He's got a good-looking jumper and plays defense, may be a young Bruce Bowen in the making.

Over here I still think Courtney Love should be Jameers #1 backup. He could eventually take over the job if the "good ole boy" network in Orlando would allow him.

Dont forget to vote for Otis Smith to be traded to Obama so as to become Secretary of WhiteHouse Basketball Operations and backup bodyguard to Reggie Love.

As the rookie year of Dwight showed, team success doesn't win you rookie of the year. This award is down to the individual. But yeah, this year is a closer and more interesting race than we've seen for some time.
