Blake Griffin officially named NBA Rookie of the Year
Griffin received all 118 first-place votes and was the first unanimous pick for the rookie award since the Spurs David Robinson in 1990.
Griffin, who was the No. 1 pick in the 2009 NBA draft, missed the entire 2009-10 season because of an injured knee. Because he didn't play that season he was considered a rookie for the 2010-11 campaign and he played in all 82 games for the Clippers and averaged 22.5 points and 12.1 rebounds a game.
