I just saw that Greg Oden is expected to play in the preseason of this upcoming season,that got me thinking.Would he be eligible for the ROY award?.

I dont know how the NBA decides that.I know that in the MLB you have to play a certain amount of games,and if you dont the next season you can still be ROY.See Giovanni Soto-Chicago Cubs.

He can still be ROY. He has yet to play in the NBA.

He could conceivably be Rookie of the Year, but obviously not if Stanko comes over.

Isn't there a minimum for games played or minutes played?

For some reason I was thinking that I read somewhere, that if a rookie player went down in the 4th qtr of openning night, they would still be eligible for the next year as well.

You'd have to petition the NBA, in that case.

Oden is still a rookie. He never played.

So does anyone know the exact rule on this?

I don't know it, but Oden can be ROY next year.

So Summer League must not count then, because I thought Oden played a couple of games in that last year.

No, it does not count, as far as I know.

Does anyone know if Stanko is coming over? Have we gotten official confirmation?

I heard stern and bird had a meeting on this a few weeks back. It seems Stern still feels the NBA isnt ready for stanko. He is afraid teams would rather forfeit then be embarrassed by the almighty STANKO

Interested Parties,

In the NBA, being a rookie is like being a virgin. There is no middle ground.

In other words, if you blew out a knee on the opening tip of your first NBA game and stayed down for the rest of the season, you would be ineligible for ROY consideration when (if) you returned the next season.

Mr. Oden is eligible for the award next season.

Oden is still a rookie.

I'd think this would be akin to Larry Bird, who was drafted a year before he actually played in the NBA and still won ROTY.

I'm fascinated by the concept of someone blowing out their knee the first time they have sex, and then claiming they could still be virgin of the year.

So if Oden's a rookie next season, he'd be on the rookie team in the Rookie/Sophomore challenge next season. Interesting. Even though the game isn't really a big deal or anything, seeing Rose, Beasley, and Oden on the same team would be pretty awesome.
