This is simply going to be a blog-style article. My question is "Do you think Ricky Rubio could beat out the likes of Kyrie Irving or Derrick Williams and win this year's Rookie of the Year award?". If Rubio were to win this honor, he would be the third Rookie of the Year from the 2009 NBA Draft behind Tyreke Evans of Sacramento (2009 ROY) and Blake Griffin of the LA Clippers (2010 ROY). Tell me what you think.
