Nikola Mirotic was named to the 2015 All-Rookie first team on Monday, along with Andrew Wiggins, Jordan Clarkson, Elfrid Payton and Nerlens Noel.
Mirotic was second in the Rookie of the Year voting behind Wiggins.
Congratulations to @threekola All NBA Rookie Team. You earned it my friend. All the best.— Bill Wennington (@34billy42) May 18, 2015
Everyone voted for Mirotic to be on the All-Rookie team besides the Washingon Wizards television commentators Steve Buckhantz and Phil Chenier.
The only two people to leave Niko Mirotic off the All-Rookie First Team were Wizards television duo Steve Buckhantz and Phil Chenier.— Jeff Mangurten (@JeffGurt) May 18, 2015
Buckhantz and Chenier must be upset after Mirotic scored a combined 41 points against the Wizards during the regular season.
Or Buckhantz and Chenier didn’t like how Mirotic clotheslined Cavaliers guard Iman Shumpert.
