From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The NBA All-Rookie Team is an annual National Basketball Association (NBA) honor given since the 1962–63 NBA season to the top rookies during the regular season. Voting is conducted by the NBA head coaches; who are not allowed to vote for players on their own team.[1] The All-Rookie Team is generally composed of two five-man lineups, a first team and a second team. The players each receive two points for each first team vote and one point for each second team vote. The top five players with the highest point total make the first team, with the next five making the second team. In the case of a tie at the fifth position of either team, the roster is expanded. If the first team consists of six players due to a tie, the second team will still consist of five players with the potential for more expansion in the event of additional ties. Ties have occurred several times, most recently in 2007, when LaMarcus Aldridge and Jorge Garbajosa tied in votes received.[2] No respect is given to positions. For example, the first team had four forwards, and one guard in 2008.

Nine All-Rookie Team members have won both the Rookie of the Year Award and the Most Valuable Player Award (MVP) during their careers. Wes Unseld is the only person to accomplish this feat in the same season. As of the end of the 2007–08 season, 29 members of the All-Rookie Team have been elected into the Basketball Hall of Fame, 28 members were not born in the United States and 120 members are active in the NBA.[3][4][5][6][7]
