2007-2008 NBA All-Rookie Team [NBA.com]

+
1st Team: Al Horford, Kevin Durant, Luis Scola, Al Thornton, Jeff Green 2nd Team: Jamario Moon, Juan Carlos Navarro, Thaddeus Young, Rodney Stuckey, Carl Landry None of the Warriors 4 rookies from this season (Brandan Wright, Marco Belinelli, Kosta Perovic, or Stephane Lasme) received a single vote. Year 1 for the 2007-2008 Warriors rookies didn't turn out so well.

2007-2008 NBA All-Defensive Teams Announced [NBA.com]

16
1st Team: Kevin Garnett, Kobe Bryant, Marcus Camby, Bruce Bowen, Tim Duncan 2nd Team: Shane Battier, Chris Paul, Dwight Howard, Tayshaun Prince, Raja Bell Notice all of the above players are on playoff squads. Baron Davis received one vote (how?), but no other Warriors received any votes (deservedly so). Monta Ellis and even Kelenna Azubuike get ripped for their horrendous defense as they should, but Andris Biedrins has gotten a pass. He cannot man up too many players in the league and simply does not protect the rim. Biedrins and his 1.2 bpg scare no one. Don't miss GSoM friend Tim Kawakami's entertaining NBA No-Defense Team.

Kobe Bryant Wins NBA 2007-08 MVP

8

He was straight robbed in 2005-2006 when the voters made Steve Nash the worst 2 time MVP of all time, but this year he couldn't be denied. Kobe Bryant is the NBA's 2007-2008 Most Valuable Player and deservedly so. While the media and public at large were fawning over a young center who only played 35 games this year (what if they had Jason Kidd right now instead?) and complaining about the lopsided Pau Gasol trade (Gasol missed 10 games as a Laker), Kobe was bringing it and leading his team to the #1 seed in the West.
