2009 Rookie of the Year Picks.

With Summer League officially over, that means the NBA season is just around the corner. With the draft behind us and the new kids having shown off their goods, ABDB checked in to see who the pros have pegged for Rookie of the Year.

Carmelo Anthony, Denver Nuggets: Greg Oden.
Michael Redd, Milwaukee Bucks: I have to go with Greg Oden, he’s a rookie and a fellow Ohio State Buckeye.
Deron Williams, Utah Jazz: Greg Oden would be a good choice, Michael Beasley is a good pick as well.
Tayshaun Prince, Detroit Pistons: Greg Oden is considered a rookie, so he’s going to be up there. Michael Beasley is up there. The talent is so good, it's going to be a toss-up. Obviously with Oden being eligible its going to be interesting.
Dwight Howard, Orlando Magic: I’m going to go with Derrick Rose.

While we're hardly pros, All Balls Don't Bounce is picking Michael Beasley for Rookie of the Year. He has the heart, attitude and skills, and likely will be getting the minutes on a rebuilding Heat squad. With Dwayne Wade getting back to form and Shawn Marion, he won't have to carry the squad, but is a deadly third option.
