Zion is obviously very talented but Roy should be Ja. Not only was he great and has played practically the entire season, his winning, won't-back-down attitude has obviously lifted the morale of his team. Of course other factors played in as well like having a new coach, change in FO, but for a team projected to be one of the worst, they are in playoffs standing rn in the competitive west and that's impressive

Denver may have nailed one of the greatest draft steals in NBA history.Drafted 44 you have to wonder what were teams thinking.From what I've seen he looks like a young KD that can block shots.I had no idea Bol could handle the basketball that well and pull up for threes and has point guard skills.He has star potential.Another thing that surprised me is how well he moves and runs the floor.He's pretty athletic.Bol will lead the league in blocks.I'm just am blown away that so many teams passed on him.

Zion and it's not close for me. He's been the far more impactful player in the games he's played.

Does he deserve ROY though? That's debatable. I say yes, but I wouldn't feel he was robbed if he didn't get it due to missing most of the season.

Has bol bols scrimmage games put him into the ROY picture? MIP coming from players who played less than 10 college games and 0 real nba games?

No rookie that plays 19 games should even be in the discussion for ROY, let alone an All Rookie team. He played great for sure. Ja played great on a playoff team all season long.

Zion even being in this discussion is due to the media’s willingness to crown him the next king of the league before he even plays 20 games.

"The NBA Rookie of the Year race is now down to just two players — at least according to the betting market. And according to PointsBet, it's not even a close two-man race anymore. Grizzlies rookie Ja Morant is a -10000 favorite there, which is an implied probability of 99%"

It's really a no-contest, and Zion has done nothing the past 4.5 months to get in better shape. You'd think with dining rooms closed, and people being encouraged to stay home that he off all people would make a concerted effort to eat better and shed weight. This clown was sat the last minute of 1st game, and only played 15 minutes overall due to a MINUTES RESTRICTION! They should of beat the Jazz with Zion considering the Jazz are without Bojan. The minutes restriction was basically raised in March, and now he got another one. Due to lack of a giving a ****, he's going to miss the playoffs.

So he’s gonna count as a rookie next year even after getting experience in the playoffs? That’s even more dumb than Simmons winning ROY

His minutes will be limited next season anyway.
