I admit that I am biased. At the same time, I think there are good reasons why Joel Embiid — a rookie who only played in 31 games this season — should be named rookie of the year.
Keep in mind that not only did Embiid only pay in 31 games, he played with minute restrictions in those games. All in all, he only played in around half of those games. Despite that, his stats for those games are way better than any other rookie. They would be awesome if he had played the whole time. In other words, he was an absolute beast on the court. Enough said.
What do you think?
