Lopez a Star of the Rookie Class...but Rookie of the Year?

NBA writers are starting to think about who should be Rookie of the Year. The Bulls have even set up a website for Derrick Rose to help them. Everyone agrees Brook Lopez is one of the top two or three rookies, but few think he'll get the big award. ESPN's David Thorpe calls Lopez the best rookie big and Hoopshype's Marc Narducci calls him the rookie who's most exceeded expectations but neither calls him ROY.
