I think Ja for ROY should be fairly obvious even though Zion has had a fantastic run since he has come back from injury and certainly has a case. Zion is still the clear #1 guy in this rookie class but Ja has been able to do more this season due purely to more opportunity/availability.

Considering the regular season is over or at minimum significantly shortened, Zion isn't going to have played enough games to be in this race.

the award is nice and all, but just knowing that Ja has a chance to be a special player is enough for me. Im sure pels fans feel the same way about zion

Amazed that this poll is even as close as it is. You just can't give the award to a guy that played 19 games, no matter how great he's been. Ja will rightfully be a unanimous choice.

No contest when he has played 19 games played in total?

I think it would be close even if they played a similar amount of games.
Zion was amazingly consistent, had a high work ethic and great motor, Morant has a great all-round game, points, assists, defense, effort, and I think there is a chance that he be the best player in the league one day. I think Morant will make his team better, where as Zion could be a Blake Griffen.

If I had to choose one assuming a healthy career I don't know who I'd prefer, but when including risk I would go Morant.

I voted Morant, but disappointed there wasn't a Ben Simmons option.
