Marc Stein, ESPN's senior NBA writer, has named Randy Foye his "rookie of the trimester" for the first third of the NBA season. Though Stein admits that it's been an underwhelming rookie class so far, he makes a point to say that Randy has made a name for himself above and beyond his peers:
Like a lot of Wolves fans, I wish Foye played more. Yet I've seen enough from this guy in a couple of crunch times -- at Dallas in November and Tuesday when he scored the game-winner to save the Wolves after they had blown a big lead to Chicago -- to pick him out of a struggling group that only has one rook (Adam Morrison) averaging better than 10 ppg.

Though it's still early in the season, one has to say that Randy Foye is now the clear frontrunner for the rookie of the year award. It will come as no surprise to 'Nova fans if Randy does eventually win it, since they saw his talent and impact for four years.
