Monroe gets no love from rookies October 18, 2010

Pistons rookie forward Greg Monroe earned no votes for Rookie of the Year when NBA.com surveyed 40 rooks in August.

Picking Washington Wizards guard John Wall — the clear number 1 pick in last summer’s NBA draft — for the this year’s award is unsurprising. But PistonPowered.com wonders why Monroe didn’t even get a look from his fellow rookies.

The blog makes a good argument in Monroe’s favor: He’ll get significant playing time in Detroit’s frontcourt, especially with the loss of Jonas Jerebko.

Monroe is also the first legit post threat the Pistons have had in years, notwithstanding the times Rasheed Wallace decided to stay inside the arc.

Hopefully, Monroe will use the news as bulletin board fodder to spur his play to greater heights, as Patrick Hayes of PistonPowered.com suggests.
