The Portland Trailblazers Damian Lillard and Charlotte Bobcats Michael Kidd Gilchrist have been name the Western and Eastern Conferences October/November rookies of the month.

Lillard was the 6th overall pick and Kidd Gilchrist went 2nd.

Kidd Gilchrist is averaging 10.9 points per game, 6.5 rebounds per game, 1.5 assist per game, 1.2 steals per game, and 1.3 blocks per game.

Hornets rookie Anthony Davis has had a tough time staying on the court so far in the season, playing in only 6 of 17 games. Im sure Davis did not qualify for any rookie of the month consideration playing in less the 50% of games.
