Turner was selected even though she played (on a regular basis) less than half a season. I'm glad to see she played well when given the opportunity to do so. I can see her reaching the potential she was believed to have coming out of high school if she remains healthy.Congrats to Napheesa for winning the award and Arike for an excellent season and coming in second. As Ben Dull's article -- posted on another thread - indicated, both of them had exceedingly proficient seasons in many aspects and one can expect more of that from both of them.
As for the Boneyard, I'd think the owners of this enterprise were very happy to have Arike around for both the NCAA and now WNBA season for increasing the click rates on so many threads over so many months and helping with ad rates, not to mention word of mouth over many WBB-related blogs.
As for some comments -- these among them -- the graciousness is just overwhelming (you folks wrote 'em, I didn't). Would following Napheesa's lead -- taking the hight road -- be that difficult?
Obviously so in these cases, so for once I'll give a (mild) pushback:
In addition to the rookie of the year vote, the AP also announced it's All-rookie team:
- Napheesa Collier
- Teaira McCowan
- Arike Ogunbowale
- Brianna Turner
- Jackie Young
