Though we in the D think he should have made the 1st.

“Tyreke Evans, Stephen Curry and Brandon Jennings – the three Rookie of the Year front-runners, the award Evans won on Thursday – were joined on the first team by Taj Gibson and Darren Collison. Jerebko was named to the second team along with two lottery picks, James Harden and Jonny Flynn, and two other second-rounders, DeJaun Blair and Marcus Thornton.

Jerebko finished the season with averages of 9.3 points and 6.0 rebounds in nearly 28 minutes a game, shooting .481. He started 73 games, the most by a Pistons rookie since Kelly Tripucka started all 82 in 1981-82. Jerebko finished third among rookies in rebounding, behind Chicago’s Gibson and San Antonio’s Blair, fifth in minutes, eighth in steals and 10th in scoring.”

    If the Pistons had actually won any games he could have made first team.

    I am so happy to see that you are maintaining this site! I was born and raised in Detroit and moved to Houston TX in January 2008. Shortly thereafter, I found this site online. I was fortunate enough to have attended all three Pistons championship parades downtown at Hart Plaza.

    Think about it – witnessing multiple Pistons, Shock and Red Wings championships ( I was attending college in Atlanta, GA during the Tigers ’87 World Series victory). Most people never get to see their hometown team win anything! Detroit has been very fortunate.

    Chauncey-to-Denver spelled the end of an era….one I fear will never be repeated. I pray for the D (and its citizens). I don’t think the Pistons will return to the top for a while – that’s IF the remain in Detroit/Auburn Hills. Now, if Tom Illitch steps in……

    Can’t wait for next season to start. Having watched nearly 60 games this season, even due to the time difference (+6 hours) we been following JJ from home. Our guy has made an entire country intrested in NBA. That’s a first team pick in my eyes! Really good site by the way, keep it up!
