Greg Monroe finishes sixth – sixth! – in Rookie of the Year voting

Scott Howard-Cooper of NBA.com released Rookie of the Year results:

Final results: 1. Griffin (590 points). 2. Wall (295). 3. Cousins (81). 4. Fields (62). 5. Neal (19). 6. Monroe (15).

That’s a joke. Landry Fields and Gary Neal didn’t belong anywhere near Greg Monroe, let alone ahead of him. Monroe had a better season than DeMarcus Cousins, too. There was a thin line between John Wall and Monroe (I’d favor Wall), but for Wall to receive nearly 20 times the points as Monroe is crazy.

UPDATE: Here’s the voting from NBA.com:
