    Ayton and Jaren Jackson have been ballin as well.

    This was a good rookie class. I can see Doncic, Jackson, Ayton and Young becoming future stars. I can't say the same about Mo Bamba.

    Likely in that order too in terms of upside. Doncic is going to grow into a stronger more fit professional over the few years. Ayton has a high floor low upside IMO. He is what he is. I think Young is going to be an average player long term. Still a pretty decent class it appears with Bagley also having some upside.

    Give Kurucs more time as a starter and he should come into this conversation, even if he was the 40th pick. He's effective, shoots free throws well, rebounds, makes steals, and even blocks shots. And this after basically not playing last year.

    Luka played professional ball . He shouldn't count if people didn't want simmons , who redshirted a year, to not be eligible. Why should a player that has already played professionally win the ROY? Its for rookies.




    WOJ, ANNOUNCE LEBRON TO THE BUCKS! It's PAST DEC 15 FOR CHRIST SAKE!

    Like Donny Trump is doing for America after a brutal 8 years, I am making PSD Great Again One Post at a time, doe!!

    One Big A-- (8 year) Mistake America. Coincidence? I think not.

    Simmons wasn’t eliminated from the award so neither should Luka.

    Because he is a rookie to the NBA. Most good college players are also paid all the way from AAU through college.

    Tends to happen when you play pro since you were 14

    What gets me is the same exact defense of him is happening as did with Okafor:
    “The guys around him aren’t good defenders”
    “He doesn’t get asked to try to be available for offense”
    “It take so much time to learn how to defend”
    “He’s only a rookie!”

    Sometimes you just got to face the music:
    He’s not a good defender.

    Barring injury to Luka this race wont even be close. He simply is the only rookie that can and has taken over games single handed for his team. You cant drop 11 points in 2 minutes standing 3 feet from the basket. Luka's ability to shake his defender with beyond belief ball handling skills, foot work and deception defies belief for a kid that should have just graduated high school this past year. Un F'n believable.

    Here is a 15 second clip of Luka breaking Paul George's ankles - figuratively not literally

    And for your added enjoyment - All of Luka's step back 3s through Dec 20th. A dozen more in past week not shown on this:

    This thread should be retired. Luka dropped 29, 12 assists, 8 rebounds with the dagger 3 pointer to seal the game tonight on the road against the Timberwolves. 2nd in entire NBA in clutch shooting percentage (53%).

    Last 3 games:
    29 PTS, 12 AST, 8 REB
    30 PTS, 5 REB, 5 AST
    27 PTS, 8 REB, 2 AST

    no doubt but we had to hear that **** all year plus so its nice to see the egg on peoples faces when they are trying to argue duncic now over someone... which by the way was my argument the entire time on how stupid people were when arguing against simmons... now i see these same people saying duncic is ROY and its HILARIOUS.
