Damian Lillard, Anthony Davis headline NBA All-Rookie teams

The NBA announced the All-Rookie Teams today. Damian Lillard of the Portland Trail Blazers, who won the Rookie of the Year Award, was the only unanimous selection to the First Team.

Bradley Beal, Anthony Davis, Dion Waiters and Harrison Barnes joined Lillard on the First Team.

The Second Team is made up of Andre Drummond, Jonas Valanciunas, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Kyle Singler and Tyler Zeller.

No Oklahoma City Thunder rookies had a chance at making the team. Jeremy Lamb and Perry Jones, III spent most of their time this season playing for the Tulsa 66ers.

Lamb and Jones are still capable of being two of the best players from this rookie class. Look at how much Reggie Jackson improved from year one to year two with the Thunder this season. I wouldn’t be surprised if Lamb and Jones have similar jumps next season.

Here is the full breakdown of the voting:


Player Team First (2 pt) Second (1 Pt) Total
Damian Lillard Portland 29 - 58
Bradley Beal Washington 28 1 57
Anthony Davis New Orleans 28 1 57
Dion Waiters Cleveland 21 8 50
