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, Portland Trail Blazers (58)

Bradley Beal , Washington Wizards (57)

Anthony Davis , New Orleans Pelicans (57)

Dion Waiters , Cleveland Cavaliers (50)

Harrison Barnes , Golden State Warriors (47)

And the second team: 

Andre Drummond , Detroit Pistons (35)

Jonas Valanciunas , Toronto Raptors (31)

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist , Charlotte Hornets (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.
