    Default Channing Frye - Rookie of the Year?

    As far as I know, this year's rookie class doesnt seem to solid. Do you guys think it's possible for Frye to take home the ROTY award? He's in the top 5 in scoring and rebounds among rookies, and he has just put together a chain of 3 straight 20 point games. This guy is looking good. He doesn't seem to miss with that mid-range jumper.

    I think maybe the only rookie that is having as solid of a season is Deron Williams, but he averages about 30 something minutes per game as opposed to Frye's 20 MPG.

    Do you guys think Frye has a legit shot at bringing the ROTY award back to NY?

    he can only improve from here and by the looks of things he has a bright future ahead of him i reckon he could average 20 points 8 rebs by the end of the year and depending how chris paul deron williams and charlie v go he might just have a chance at r.o.y

    When Frye was drafted, I trashed Isiah for picking what I thought would be a bust. I must eat my words and admit I was so wrong. Frye may well have the most reliable mid-range jump shot I have ever seen and today I'm so glad he's a Knick.

    It'll be tough to beat Deron, Paul and Villanueva for ROY, but if Channing becomes a starter (he definitely deserves to start at the 4 the way he's playing), he may have a chance to be ROY.

    One thing's certain, he will be a starter in this year's rookie game.

    hmm i actually believe chris pauls putting up 17 & 6...still good numbers but not 20 and 10...if the season ended right now would Frye get the award? no. would he deserve it? no. hes doing good right now and thank u portega cause at least some ppl are owning up to thinking this kid is the next Charles Smith...

    but if channing begins to start at the C (moving Curry to the PF) or just starts at the PF (which he eventually should) i think he has a legit chance..yea especially if we make the playoffs. I think he needs to add a few more rebounds to those stats and break the 1bpg spot and he has a very legit chance

    In addition to the fact that as a big man, he's shooting 88% from the FT line - that's unheard of!!
    Second, his FG% is at 51%
    All this in only 20mins a game - this kid can play ball.

    I think if he continues to play this way, he has a legit shot at ROY.

    From Day 1, I've always said that Frye should be playin the four. Most if not all the work he has been getting is at the 4. I really believe with him at the PF and Curry at C, we will have one of the most dynamic frontcourts for years to come.

    I agree that there may be no clear cut choice right now for ROY. There are several players that doing well and need more playing time to show what they really have. Frye definitely deserves a nomination and should get serious consideration if he becomes our starting PF. Paul may be the best rookie by years' end but may not get it b/c he plays for the worst team in the league. Bogut may get it if Milwaukee decides to put him back in the starting line-up. As a starter he was putting up very good numbers. Villanueva has proven to be a surprise. If Bosh wasn't playing the same position, he would be starting and be putting pretty good numbers as well.

    Paul wont get it because hes on the worst team in the league?...interesting view...Emeka Okafor won it last year and was on the worst team in the league. i really dont think that has any sway of the matter well unless u take your team to the finals your rookie year. then standings are considered i suppose.

    Actually Charlotte had a really good stretch last year and had more wins before the end of the 1st half than anyone ever thought they would have had in the whole year. Much of that press was credited to the presence of Emeka Okafor and his 17 or so straight Double-Double's, coming close if not breaking the record for straight double-double's.

    The difference in this situation is that there is more national press surrounding the other issues going on with the Hornets than the positive things Paul is accomplishing.

    Let's go slowly. We have seen great mid range jump shooting, great running the floor, soft hands around the hoop. We have not seen much of a post game which is essential for a guy his size or defense in the post. Question: will he or will he not be better than Marcus Camby?

    When you look at how Camby has been playing this year, it's hard to imagine Frye getting that good (20 and 15 a night). We all know his offense is instant, but he should be getting 1 or 2 more rebounds for a guy his size. As Aguirre works with him I only see Frye getting better, sky is the limit for this kid.

    He definetly has a chance and is one of the top candidates, but he is still behind Chris Paul right now.


    And whether or not the Knicks make the playoffs is irrelevent, the ROTY is based on the best rookie from that year, its not like a MVP award.

    But you still gotta root for him.



    CHANNING FRYE FOR ROTY!!
