The NBA All-Rookie Team is an annual National Basketball Association (NBA) honor given since the 1962–63 NBA season to the top rookies during the regular season. NBA All-Rookie Team_sentence_0

Voting is conducted by the NBA head coaches who are not allowed to vote for players on their own team. NBA All-Rookie Team_sentence_1

The All-Rookie Team is generally composed of two five-man lineups: a first team and a second team. NBA All-Rookie Team_sentence_2

The players each receive two points for each first team vote and one point for each second team vote. NBA All-Rookie Team_sentence_3

The top five players with the highest point total make the first team, with the next five making the second team. NBA All-Rookie Team_sentence_4

In the case of a tie at the fifth position of either team, the roster is expanded. NBA All-Rookie Team_sentence_5

If the first team consists of six players due to a tie, the second team will still consist of five players with the potential for more expansion in the event of additional ties. NBA All-Rookie Team_sentence_6

Ties have occurred several times, most recently in 2012, when Kawhi Leonard, Iman Shumpert, and Brandon Knight tied in votes received. NBA All-Rookie Team_sentence_7

No respect is given to positions. NBA All-Rookie Team_sentence_8

For example, the first team had four forwards, and one guard in 2008, while the first team had four centers (two of which were forward-centers) and one guard in 2016. NBA All-Rookie Team_sentence_9

Nine All-Rookie Team members have won both the Rookie of the Year Award and the Most Valuable Player Award (MVP) during their careers. NBA All-Rookie Team_sentence_10
