The 2018-19 NBA All-Rookie teams were announced on Tuesday, and to nobody’s surprise Dallas Maverics forward Luka Doncic and Atlanta Hawks point guard Trae Young were unanimous First Team selections.

DeAndre Ayton of the Phoenix Suns, Jaren Jackson Jr. of the Memphis Grizzlies, and Marvin Bagley III of the Sacramento Kings rounded out the 2018-19 NBA All-Rookie First Team.

Here’s a look at the full results, per ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski.

Doncic was a sensation from the moment he stepped onto the court for Dallas, putting up highlight-reel plays up in bunches throughout his rookie season. He finished the campaign averaging 21.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 6.0 assists, and 1.1 steals per game.

Young also had a tremendous rookie season in Atlanta. The long-distance specialist averaged 19.1 points, 3.7 rebounds, 8.1 assists and 0.9 steals per game.

This entire rookie class showed promise, and figures to be relevant in the NBA for a long, long time.
