Griffin gets top rookie award

Los Angeles Clippers forward Blake Griffin has been named the NBA's Rookie of the Year by a unanimous vote.
Griffin accepted the award Wednesday at the Clippers' training
complex.
Griffin received every first-place vote from a panel of 118
media members, easily outdistancing Washington's John Wall. The
6-foot-10 forward is the first unanimous winner of the award since
San Antonio's David Robinson in 1990.
Griffin led all rookies in scoring and rebounding while playing
in all 82 games for the Clippers, finishing 12th in the entire NBA
in scoring (22.5 points) and fourth in rebounds (12.1). He was the
NBA's first rookie All-Star since Yao Ming in 2003.
The No. 1 draft pick out of Oklahoma in 2009 missed all of the
2009-10 season with a broken kneecap.
