Oladipo-KingsThe NBA announced the 2013-2014 NBA All-Rookie team today, starring the Orlando Magic’s very own Victor Oladipo. Victor missed a perfect ballot thanks to one voter (play-by-play announcer Kevin Calabro of ESPN Radio – who later apologized) inexplicitly leaving him off the ballot entirely.

The Philadelphia 76ers’ Michael Carter-Williams, the 2013-14 Kia NBA Rookie of the Year, was the lone unanimous First Team selection (250 points, 125 First Team votes),Victor Oladipo 248 points, 124 First Team votes). Trey Burke of the Utah Jazz (230 points, 108 First Team votes), Mason Plumlee of the Brooklyn Nets (214 points, 95 First Team votes) and the New York Knicks’ Tim Hardaway Jr. (204 points, 87 First Team votes) complete the 2013-14 NBA All-Rookie First Team.

The voting panel consisted of 125 sportswriters and broadcasters throughout the United States and Canada who were asked to select five players for the first team and five players for the second team, regardless of position. Two points were awarded for first team votes and one for second team votes.

Oladipo finished second in the Rookie of the Year voting and averaged 13.8 ppg, 4.1 rebounds, 4.1 apg and 1.6 spg in his rookie campaign. He tallied double-figure scoring efforts in 62 games and posted one triple-double. Burke averaged 12.8 ppg, 5.7 apg and 3.0 rpg. He had 12 games with 20 or more points, and handed out 10 or more assists seven times.

The All-Rookie Second Team and full voting results after the jump:

The NBA All-Rookie Second Team consists of the Boston Celtics’ Kelly Olynyk (119 points, 19 First Team votes), the Milwaukee Bucks’ Giannis Antetokounmpo (116 points, 15 First Team votes), the Minnesota Timberwolves’ Gorgui Dieng (96 points, 21 First Team votes), the Charlotte Hornets’ Cody Zeller (67 points, three First Team votes), and the Oklahoma City Thunder’s Steven Adams (65 points, nine First Team votes).
