Kevin Durant - Rookie of the Year

Was there any doubt? Multiple anonymous sources in the NBA have said that Durant will be your 2007-08 NBA rookie of the year!

Congratulations to Kevin Durant for his hard work this past season. He stayed classy in spite of the turmoil the organization is in. Durant stayed focused and improved throughout the season, especially in the last 2 months, when it was probably the most difficult to do so. Durant never threw in the towel, and he played his heart out regardless of who had been traded/added to the team through the year.

Among all rookies this past season, Durant led all with 20.3 points per game, 9th in field goal percentage, 10th in rebounding, and 3rd in assists. Kevin Durant is the first Rookie of the Year award winner for the Seattle Supersonics franchise.
