The Rookie of the Year reveals these past few years have been amazing.
For example, LaMelo Ball.
Anyway, I am a Cade Cunningham card collector. I thought Cade did enough but I also think that he struggled at the start of the season - pro game adjustments and injury.
With that said, I recognize the awesomeness of Scottie Barnes. The dude alongside Evan Mobley balled hard for their respective teams and filled the spots vacated by their more popular teammates.
In the case of Barnes, the Toronto Raptors reeled without Kawhi Leonard, and with the youth movement taking shape because of the exodus of Kyle Lowry, this is the perfect time to debut a new superstar in the mold of Vince Carter, Chris Bosh, and DeMar Derozan.
And did you see the team "prank" Barnes with Vince Carter at the forefront?
They made the dude cry.
