NBA All-Rookie Teams 2014: Kevin Calabro says snubbing Victor Oladipo for All-Rookie a "gross error"

Kevin Calabro - Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The ESPN play-by-play man accidentally left Oladipo off his All-Rookie ballot.

The NBA announced Thursday its All-Rookie First and Second Teams for the 2013/14 season, and nearly had two players earn unanimous selections to the First Team. Philadelphia 76ers point guard Michael Carter-Williams, the Rookie of the Year winner, earned all 125 First Team votes. Orlando Magic combo guard Victor Oladipo, the Rookie of the Year runner-up, appeared on 124 ballots, with ESPN broadcaster Kevin Calabro omitting him from his ballot.

Via his Twitter account, Calabro apologized for the error. "Happy to report no concussion just a gross error due to old age maybe," said Calabro. "Being a Hoosier I'm well aware of Oladipo. My bad."

Calabro voted Carter-Williams, Utah Jazz point guard Trey Burke, Oklahoma City Thunder center Steven Adams, Brooklyn Nets center Mason Plumlee, and Atlanta Hawks center Pero Antić to the First Team.

Oladipo, an Indiana product, averaged 13.8 points, 4.1 rebounds, 4.1 assists, and 1.6 steals per game in his first NBA season. Unanimous choice or not, Oladipo still became the first Magic player in nine seasons to earn an All-Rookie First Team selection.
