As far as Rookie of the Year goes for this upcoming season...in my opinion it could be any of the 5 following players:

5- Cam Reddish (Hawks)
4- Bol Bol (Nuggets)
3- RJ Barrett (Knicks)
2- Ja Morant (Grizzlies)
1- Zion Williamson (Pelicans)

Zion is obviously the favorite; runaway favorite to win it and he hasn't even played an NBA game. Yeah he's played Summer League but got shut down but even in Summer League he showed me that he's gonna be box office. This should give the Pelicans fans something to hope for especially after AD left them high and dry.

NBA rookies who are NBA ready now definitely are Zion and Ja so how do you get against either player for NBA Rookie of the Year

It took the ABA and NBA a combined 17 years to shoot above .300% as a league from 3 pt, 25 combined years to shoot over .350% as a league
The ABA existed from 1967-76 and utilized the 3 point shot throughout. The NBA implemented the 3 point shot in the 1979-80 season. Through the first 7 years of shooting 3 pt shots, the NBA never averaged above .282 in a season while during the same time frame the ABA never averaged below .283 with twice as many attempts. The NBA got off to a 'hot' start shooting .280 from the three in season one. But the next four years saw the shooting percentage above .25 only once. Then there began a surging that allowed the 3 point shooting percentage to bust through the .300 barrier in 86-87 by ending at .301. Then it was .316 the next season and the .350 level would eventually get broken at the end of the 94-95 season and generally stayed around .350 since then. So it took the NBA 16 seasons to be able to top .350 as a league and topping .350 as a league was something the ABA never did during its nine year existence. So there's a combined twenty-five seasons to break the .350 barrier from the three point line.whatsapp web (https://openweb.onl/whatsapp-web/) whatsapp plus (https://modplus.pro/whatsapp-plus/)

Interesting post. Any suggested ABA readings?

It will most likely be between Zion Williamson and Ja Morant. Both of those players making huge headlines for a while.

De Andre Hunter is another potential dark horse

Rookie of the year is pretty much the point per game award. I can see Hunter being one of the very few rookies who actually has positive impact metrics on the floor due to his intangibles and defense, but I'd be surprised if he win ROY.

Super.

I'm leaning towards Garland myself. Little bit of a homer pick but He's gonna get A LOT of shots. This day in age the 3 ball is so popular I think he's gonna score a lot of points as a rookie.

I also Like hunter.

I honestly think Zion will play well but run into some issues. He needs to get in better shape to play a whole NBA season. I'm actually really excited for the pelicans season, i think they can make some noise.
