With the season about to come to a close, who's your pick for ROY?

It looks like it'll between the two UConn Kids, Emeka Okafor and "Mr. 4th Quarter" Ben Gordon, and the SuperChristian Dwight Howard.

I guess you could throw in Andre Iguodala in consideration but I don't think his chances are as good as the other 3.

How cool would it be if Gordon won Rookie of the Year AND 6th Man of the Year? It's possible. The Bulls have surprised EVERYONE this year.

Probably Okafor, on the grounds that he's done the most with the least amount of talent around him.

However, Gordon will be the first one out of this bunch to make the leap up to Big-Stardom, since he'll get better as his teammates keep getting better. It was a great pickup for Chicago, and gives the Bulls what they haven't had since He left: a fully-loaded weapon in the backcourt.

Okafor did more because there is less talent around him. Gordon is clutch and good on a good team. I think it will be really close, and Gordon will pull it off.

My vote goes to Gordon. Biases aside, he just about single-handedly won the game for the Bulls against Okafor's Bobcats last night. He scored 22 of his 35 pointsin the fourth quarter, including all 16 of the Bulls' final points.

This may be a homer pick, but I have watched J.R. Smith all year, and he has been amazing. He was getting his bearings in November and the early part of December, but since then he has been out of his mind. He had 33 the other night. I would also nominate Ben Gordon, as he has also been having a good year.

Gotta go with Gordon too...not just because it's a homer pick...but the dude leads the league in 4th Qtr scoring as a rookie, and is one of the key pieces to the Bulls resurgance, and a reason why they are in the playoffs..

Okafor, solid year, and I don't wanna take anything away from him, but the numbers he's putting up don't hold nearly as much weight as Gordon's, who's actually contribute to the team's playoff push.

I wouldn't be surprised if Gordon or Chandler walk away with 6th man too...but we'll se..

Okafor... not that I'm a homer or anything (which I am), but Emeka has been asked to do a ton more than Gordon this year. He's been asked to be a #1 scoring option (which he isn't), their top interior presence defensively, and arguably a team leader. Gordon has been great when he's played, but Skiles is able to just bring him off the bench in the 2nd half for the sole purpose of scoring (which he does very well, mind you). Still, Okafor has done as good, if not better, as Gordon under a lot more pressure teamwise.
