The NBA has finally released the 2018-2019 All-Rookie teams. Sensational rookies Trae Young and Luka Doncic were unanimously named in the league’s first ballot.

Atlanta Hawks' crowd-favorite Trae Young quickly received some criticism due to his slow start. But he quickly put the speculations to rest by proving that his lights out college game has already translated into NBA level. Young impressively averaged 19.1 points and 8.1 assists per game as a rookie this season.

Doncic averaged a whooping 21.2 points, 7.8 rebounds and 6.0 assists per game this season for the Mavericks. This established Doncic as a gutsy clutch-time player who is said to deal with lots of opposing teams in the long run, Slam Online repoted.

Joining Doncic and Young in the first rookie team were DeAndre Ayton, Marvin Bagley and Jaren Jackson Jr.

Ayton was proclaimed second among rookies with a 20.54 player efficiency rating. New York Knicks’ Mitchell Robinson is only a spot ahead with a 22.01 rating.

Meanwhile, Bagley was able to live up to the hype as the no. 2 overall pick. He became an important key piece for the Sacramento Kings’ surprise season. The former Duke star finished his debut campaign with 14.9 points and 7.6 rebounds per game, but he was limited to playing only 62 games due to acquiring multiple injuries. Bagley, alongside De'Aaron Fox and Buddy Hield, were able to help the Kings finish the season with 39 wins, their highest in a season since 2005-06.

Last is Jackson, who made it to the first team despite playing only 58 games. The Memphis Grizzlies rookie missed the final 22 games due to a right quad injury but managed to come back looking stronger than ever.

Jackson was drafted as the fourth overall pick, and he averaged 13.8 points and 4.7 rebounds each game. In addition, he showcased an impressive range for a 6-foot-11 power forward with a 35.9 percentage from three-point range, according to Bleacher report.
