INDEPENDENCE, Ohio (AP) -- Cavaliers guard Kyrie Irving is the
NBA's Rookie of the Year, winning the award with the same ease as
he dribbled past defenders this season.

Irving received 117 of 120 possible first-place votes from a
nationwide media panel of 120 writers and broadcasters. Irving
finished with 592 points, way ahead of Minnesota's Ricky Rubio
(170) and Denver's Kenneth Faried (129), who was third.

Faried, San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard and New York's Iman Shumpert
received the other first-place votes, denying Irving's bid to
become the fourth player to win the award unanimously.

The 20-year-old is the second Cleveland player to win the award,
joining LeBron James in 2004.
