If Zion continues like this it will be really really interesting. He will have had a "better" season, but is 35 games enough to be ROTY. Sort of a Brogdon/Embiid situation.
This isn’t directed at you Smirk, just everyone, but let’s not compare this to Embiid and Brogdon. Not near the same situation. If Brogdon has a year close to Ja’s there wouldn’t have been a question. It was just a down year. This year is not. Ja is 17.6 3.5 and 7.1 on good efficiency, with a ton of flare, and has his team in prime playoff contention.
Having said that, if Zion keeps this up and puts Nola in the playoffs, I’d give it to him.
And that’s as a huge Grizz fan
