Many ACC Fans On Twitter Are Not Thrilled About TJ Warren's Selection As ACC Player Of The Year

While North Carolina State had a fairly mediocre season, and the Wolfpack are likely on the wrong side of the bubble at the moment, forward TJ Warren had a crazy season. The 6-foot-8 Sophomore averaged 24.8 points and 7.1 rebounds per game over the course of the season. His point totals in his last five games: 31, 36, 20, 41, 42. It is hard to argue against the fact that Warren was the league's most prolific scorer, and for his efforts, he was awarded the 2014 ACC Player of the Year award by the voting media. Fans and other members of the media on Twitter are not happy about this at all.

Some of the heat has come off of the Warren selection after it came out that Jabari Parker, a sub-par defender by most accounts, received four ACC Defensive Player of the Year votes. Now that is something we can get up in arms about.
