    Official ROTY thread

    Well seeing that everyone thought Simmons was a run away to take ROTY; and then D-Mitch said "hold me back" and has been playing extremely well.

    I think it's at least worth discussing. Because Mitchell can win it; it's not too far out of the realm.

    “I think he should be Rookie of the Year, for sure,” Damian Lillard said of Mitchell. “Not just because of his numbers, but his impact on their team. He’s basically leading them. It’s special to see a rookie be able to do what he’s doing out there.”
    It was merely the latest jaw-dropping performance for the rookie guard, who was named the Western Conference Player of the Month in December and January.
    “He’s a really, really, really good player,” Lillard said. “Not just for a rookie, just as a player in the league. PEriod.

    Simmons is a Sophmore. He shouldn’t be the ROY plus he whines and complains a lot. I wonder how much he would complain after watching Mitchell win ROY.

    The league does not hate the process. That's a falsified narritive that you philly fans are convinced off. It's not true.

    So the 6-10 guy gets more rebounds and more assists (while having the FAR superior supporting cast). Yeah, Simmons should be ROY even though he shouldn't be eligible because of Philly's red shirt program they implement on all top picks.

    They are both impressive players, but it would be interesting to see what Simmons would be able to do if his second best offensive player was Joe Ingles. They are in completely different situations and if MTM thinks Mitchell is Brogdon....well I dunno what to tell you. They are both special players and ROY doesn't mean **** so let's just enjoy both of them.

    Does Simmons still suck without embiid out there? If so, then definitely Mitchell

    He's also in his second year in the NBA. I'm sure that has nothing to do with it; like being able to practice, learn the ins and outs and get a structured program. Mitchell literally came from animal house, and a ton of hookers at louisville. The fact that he is figuring it out so early is a testamaent to his ability to learn and develop

    Lolz good post, agree with practically everything you wrote. I also want to add to you’re ROY comment not meaning **** as right now I would take 3/4 players drafted in last years rookie class over the ROY.

    I don't buy Simmons as a rookie. He's a sophomore really. I don't think he should be eligible to win ROY just because he got hurt his rookie year.

    With that said, Simmons and Mitchell are basically the same age and Simmons is better. So there's that.
