Kristaps Porzingis finishes second in Rookie of the Year voting

Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sports

Karl-Anthony Towns was very clearly the best rookie in the NBA this season, so it's no surprise he got every single first-place vote for Rookie of the Year. But hey, check out who almost-unanimously came in second!

No shame whatsoever in coming in second to Towns. Quite a bit of honor, actually, in finishing so high among such an excellent rookie class. Porzingis had a wonderful first season, and we love him so very much. Onward and upward.
