NBA ROY Award: What’s taking so long?

Posted by rc360 on April 27, 2010

While 16 teams battle to reach the NBA Finals, nine awards are handed out during the playoffs.

So far, six awards have been given out, but fans of the Sacramento Kings, Golden State Warriors and Milwaukee Bucks ask the question: When is the Rookie of the Year (ROY) award going to be announced?

When the award was given out last year, it was given to the Chicago Bulls’ Derrick Rose one day before Game 3 at Chicago in the first round of the playoffs.

Although ROY contenders Tyreke Evans of the Kings and Stephen Curry of the Warriors aren’t in the playoffs, Brandon Jennings’ Bucks have already played Game 3 in Milwaukee.

Unlike Rose last year, Jennings didn’t get a trophy.

This seemingly narrows it down to Evans and Curry but it is unknown why the award hasn’t been given out yet.

There were previous events scheduled at Arco Arena during the expected arrival of the award that could have delayed its presentation.

In a mixed martial arts event that lasted over six hours, Jose Aldo and hometown favorite Urijah Faber battled for the World Extreme Cagefighting Featherweight Championship last Saturday among other matches.

The day before, the fighters weighed in at a four-and-a-half hour event.

Evans was attendance at the fight, which Aldo won by unanimous decision.

There were no events scheduled at Oracle Arena in Oakland since the Warriors ended its season.

Curry will be at Quail Hollow Club in Charlotte, N.C. this week for the Quail Hollow Pro-Am golf tournament.

These facts could be a pre-cursor that Evans won the award. Voting for the award ended over a week ago.

This year the schedule for the postseason awards weren’t announced so a team whose player wins an award wouldn’t know until right before it was announced.

Why the winner of the award hasn’t been announced is still a mystery and the anticipation remains.
