Derrick Rose Wins ROY. Brook Lopez Comes In…Third?

I grabbed the image above from over at who grabbed it from the Official NBA release.

Now the first place winner was an obvious choice (even though I was pushing for Brook).  I know it isn’t really a big deal and maybe I am just looking for a reason to complain, but seriously?  O.J. Mayo in second and Brook in third?  Really?  It wasn’t even close either, I mean seriously what were these voters thinking?

Now I already broke down the reasons why Brook Lopez was better than Derrick Rose, so I am not going to do it again here (Although if you use the transitive property, if Brook’s numbers were better than Rose’s they HAVE to be better than O.J. Mayo’s).  I guess I was just a little surprise that’s all.
