NBA Rookie of the Year award isn’t for everyone. In fact, it is only for one person in the whole world, once per year.

As we find out season after season, Summer League does not strongly correlate with the final outcome of these players, but here are a few things we learned during Summer League as we keep a watchful eye on the NBA’s newest players.
