Luka Dončić Named Rookie Of The Year

Dallas Mavericks sensation Luka Dončić won Rookie of the Year honors Monday night at the annual NBA Awards, inexplicably broadcast live on TNT, which presumably ran out of rerun episodes of Bones with which to fill their primetime schedule. Less surprising than Dončić winning the award was the final voting margin. Atlanta’s Trae Young had an excellent second half, and Dončić faded somewhat down the stretch, after the Mavericks traded away several of his best teammates.
