Rookie of the Year Race

Fri, 08/04/2017 - 5:20am

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. Only 68 humans have ever won this award, and no one has won this award more than once, not even Michael Jordan. Unfortunately, last year’s ROTY race was a snooze. The most compelling storyline was whether or not Joel Embiid should win the award after suiting up for only 31 professional basketball games. Luckily, it was heavily overshadowed by one of the best NBA MVP discussions of all time.

The Under Armour Association closed out their season in Atlanta with WeR1 winning back to back championships. While UAA doesn’t get the same recognition as the Nike EYBL, they had their share of prospects, and have had a few big names in their minimal years of existence: Markelle Fultz, Josh Jackson, and Thon Maker to name a few.

The NBA Summer League system has become quite the spectacle over the past several years which provides a stopgap in a long summer otherwise without professional basketball. Las Vegas outshines its Orlando and Utah counterparts, but they all provide a platform for overreactions and naive optimism for fans of every team. 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.

Draft Tiers: First Round

Thu, 06/22/2017 - 12:00am

This year's draft is an interesting one as we see the strength of it in the top 5-10 picks, and a lot of parity in that range. While we don't see the same depth as say last year's draft where possible Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon was taken by Milwaukee with the 36th pick and Patrick McCaw was purchased for cash by Golden State at the 38th pick. In order to better illustrate the depth and talent of this year's draft, here is a look at the teirs, as we see them, going into this year's draft.
