Selected with the fourth overall pick in the 2018 NBA Draft following his freshman season at Michigan State University, Jackson Jr. ranked second among qualified rookies in blocks per game (1.41) and averaged 13.8 points, 4.7 rebounds and 1.1 assists in 26.1 minutes while shooting 50.6 percent from the field, 35.9 percent from three-point range and 76.6 percent from the free throw line over 58 appearances (56 starts) for the Grizzlies.
Doncic led all rookies in scoring with 21.2 points per game.
Each are among the finalists for NBA Rookie of the Year, which will be announced June 24 at the NBA Awards in Los Angeles. It's the first time since 1984-85 that the first five picks in the previous National Basketball Association draft made up the All-Rookie first team.
Of course, we have previously waxed poetic about Young's impact on the Atlanta Hawks, and there's no question he was a deserving unanimous selection to the First Team.

Dallas Mavericks guard/forward Luka Doncic has been unanimously selected to the 2018-19 NBA All-Rookie First Team after receiving first-place votes on all 100 ballots. Joining them on the All-Rookie First Team are Phoenix's Deandre Ayton, Memphis's Jaren Jackson Jr. and Sacramento's Marvin Bagley III. He became the only Maverick to win the Rookie of the Month Award four-plus times in a season and the first player from either conference to sweep the award since Minnesota's Karl-Anthony Towns in 2015-16.
The last time the top five picks were all first-team rookie honorees was in 1984-85 - a class consisting of Hakeem Olajuwon, Sam Bowie, Michael Jordan, Sam Perkins and Charles Barkley.
Players were chosen by an worldwide panel of sportswriters and broadcasters.
The second team was made up of the Clippers' Shai Gilgeous-Alexander and Landry Shamet, the Cavs' Collin Sexton, the Knicks' Mitchell Robinson and the Hawks' Kevin Huerter. Players received two points for each First Team vote and one point for each Second Team vote. No other rookies received more than 10 points of voting. The victor will be revealed June 24 at the 2019 NBA Awards in Los Angeles.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
