This year, the NBA Rookie of the Year award looked like an easy choice after the draft. With the number one pick now gone for a portion of the season, our staff makes their picks for NBA ROY.
The NBA rookie class has seen some misfortune this year with an injury to the top name on the list. Although Ben Simmons has a chance to return before the end of the season, it will be after many missed games.
