Blatant Homerism

Sole vote for Ricky Rubio as Rookie of the Year comes from ESPN Deportes guy (pic)

Like a lone voice crying out in the wilderness, ESPN Deportes Alfredo Berrios’ role as the only person among ESPN’s panel of NBA experts to select injured Minnesota Timberwolves point guard Ricky Rubio as the Rookie of the Year over otherwise unanimous favorite Kyrie Irving of the Cleveland Cavaliers is simply adorable. You know, because of the entire Spanish language angle and stuff.

Actually, reading back that previous, long-winded sentence again, a lone voice crying out in the wilderness will rarely be characterized as simply adorable. Unless that voice belonged to Ricky Rubio, a sentiment I’m sure Alfredo Berrios would agree with as well. I mean, have you heard Rubio talk? A female comedian can mimic him perfectly, for crying out loud.

But still, Senor Berrios: ¡Hay Caramba!
