NBA all-rookie team
The NBA All-Rookie Team is an annual selection of the best new league players ( rookies ) in the National Basketball Association . It has been chosen by the NBA coaches since the 1962/1963 season after the end of the regular season . The coaches are not allowed to choose a player from their own team. The all-rookie team consists of two teams with five players each, the so-called first team and the second team. A player receives two points for being elected to the first team and one point for being elected to the second team. The five players who achieve the most points are placed in the first team and the five players in the following places in the second team. If there are two players who achieve the same number of points in fifth place, then the first team is expanded by one player. In such a case, the second team still consists of five players (an expansion to six players is also possible here). There was something like this several times, e.g. B. LaMarcus Aldridge and Jorge Garbajosa had an equal number of votes in 2007 . When choosing the all-rookie team, the position of the players is not taken into account, e.g. For example, the 2008 All-Rookie Team consisted of four forwards and one guard.
At the end of the 2018/19 season , 53 former members of the all-rookie team had been inducted into the Hall of Fame . A total of 66 members were not born in the USA and 119 finished the past season with a squad spot.
