The NBA announced its 2013 All-Rookie teams on Tuesday, and to no surprise, Damian Lillard leads the way.

The first team, with point totals:

Damian Lillard, Trail Blazers (58)

Bradley Beal, Wizards (57)

Anthony Davis, Hornets (57)

Dion Waiters, Cavaliers (50)

Harrison Barnes, Warriors (47)

And the second team:

Andre Drummond, Pistons (35)

Jonas Valanciunas , Raptors (31)

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Bobcats (29)

Kyle Singler , Pistons (17)

Tyler Zeller, Cavaliers (15)

And also receiving votes: Maurice Harkless, Orlando, 14 (1); Alexey Shved, Minnesota, 14 (1); Chris Copeland, New York, 9 (1); Brian Roberts, New Orleans, 5; Andrew Nicholson, Orlando, 4; Jae Crowder, Dallas, 1; Festus Ezeli, Golden State, 1; Draymond Green, Golden State, 1; John Jenkins, Atlanta, 1; Terrence Jones, Houston, 1; Pablo Prigioni, New York, 1; Terrence Ross, Toronto, 1; Jeff Taylor, Charlotte, 1

Lillard got 29 first-team votes, the only vote-getter to sweep first-team votes. Bradley Beal got all but one first-team vote, as did Bradley Beal. There was a clear gap between the top three of Lillard, Beal, and Davis, and the rest. It's a little surprising that Waiters didn't get more votes after a suprisingly strong late-season surge, similar to J.R. Smith's. Everything else pretty much makes sense. Only objection I might make is Alexey Shved over Kyle Singler, but that's not really worth the argument.

Lillard averaged 19 points and seven assists this season for Portland.
