NEW YORK -- Rookie of the Year Kyrie Irving of Cleveland is the lone unanimous choice to the NBA's All-Rookie team.

Irving received 58 points Tuesday in voting done by the league's 30 head coaches, who could not vote for their own player. Joining him on the first team were Minnesota's Ricky Rubio (49 points); Denver's Kenneth Faried (46); Golden State's Klay Thompson (43); and New York's Iman Shumpert, San Antonio's Kawhi Leonard and Detroit's Brandon Knight, who all had 40 points.

Irving, the No. 1 pick in the draft, became one of only six rookies to average at least 18.0 points, 5.0 assists and 1.0 steal while shooting at least 45 per cent from the field, a list that includes Michael Jordan and Magic Johnson.
