Zion is best player so he should get it and in a f'd up shortened season, all bets are off at this point. All arguments about him not playing enough games shouldn't matter now.

So the argument before was not enough games to make up. Now there are less or even no more games to make . Do you think they cancel each other out or something? This all but locks up morant if the regular season ends

I think it'll go to Ja. Zion is the better rookie, but he hasn't played enough games, imo. Maybe in the playoffs?

Yeah, a shortened season hurts Zion a lot more than Ja.

Obviously Zion is the best rookie, but Ja deserves it for games played

What an absurd argument for giving Zion ROY. If anything this increases/cements Ja’s case

The only shot Zion really has if the Pelicans make the playoffs. If the season is shortened, I just don't see how he can get it.

Morant is going to and should win it. With that said Zion since making his debut has been better and more impactful.

Zion is better now and especially going forward health permitted, but Ja is ROTY.

Zion has been the best on a per game basis, but he simply hasn't played enough games. Embiid was disqualified his rookie season for only playing 31 games, and Zion has only played 19. Gotta go with Ja unless they decide to play out the season.

What playoffs? Last I checked Zion didn't give NOP enough of a push and they are still 4 games out of the 8th spot. He has no case, that's ridiculous.

Even Ja would give it to Zion.

Maybe if they make the playoffs? You might not think he has a case and that's ok. That's your opinion man lol. Not that serious.
