90 first place votes for Durant, 30 first place votes for Horford. I was initially shocked that 3 people left Horford off their ballot but upon further review there appear to be 86 votes (125 votes x 3 places on ballot = 375 votes but only 289 votes are recorded) unaccounted for. I guess the vast majority of voters don't fill all possible lines on their ballot. Still, what's the argument for Al 1) Not being one of the three best rookies in the league, or 2) Being one of the three best rookies in the league but not being worthy of you, the sportswriter or broadcaster, writing his name on your ballot?
