Larry Nance Jr. Says Collin Sexton Should Have Made All-Rookie First Team
- Updated: May 22, 2019
On Tuesday, the veteran big man took to Twitter to say that he believes Sexton should have been named to the All-Rookie First Team.
Not without Sexton they didn’t ? https://t.co/0TCqv49TSK
The rookies that were named to the list include Luka Doncic, Trae Young, Jaren Jackson Jr., Deandre Ayton, and Marvin Bagley III. It’s hard to argue against any of these blossoming young stars, but it’s also hard to argue against Sexton deserving a spot on the team as well.
While Sexton struggled early in his rookie campaign, he finished the season by piling up big scoring nights and breaking rookie records.
In fact, Sexton tied former San Antonio Spurs great Tim Duncan when he recorded 23 points or more in seven straight games.
He also matched current great Stephen Curry and Boston Celtics legend Larry Bird by becoming the third rookie ever to average at least 16 points per game while shooting 40 percent from the three-point line, and 80 percent from the free-throw line.
While the honor would have been great, there are two aspects of this story that Cavs fans should really hold onto. First off, it is clear that Sexton has earned the respect and adoration of his veteran teammates.
Second, there’s no doubt that the point guard’s future is incredibly bright.
