Rookie of the Year - Lonzo Ball

Basketball - NBA - 19 Oct 00:00

This is my second and probably last tip on Rookie of the Year(ROTY).This time I decided to go with the favorite Lonzo Ball because I believe he really is very talented and he will affect the Lakers in a positive way from the start. If you are familiar with the NBA you've probably heard the Lonzo Ball name a lot of times last season despite the fact he was still playing for UCLA in the college. His father Lavar said a lot of crazy things and even predicted that he will be a Laker this season. All this crazy talk made the Ball family really famous and Lonzo became one of the most hyped rookies ever. He was drafted second by the Lakers and right away they decided to give him the reigns of the team after they traded the former number 3 pick from 2014 Russell (he plays the same position as Lonzo) Ball will get the chance to orchestrate the offense with his amazing kayaking skills. In my opinion he is one of the most gifted playmakers in the history of the NBA at his age. Lakers also improved their roster with 2 great players in Brook Lopez and KCP that will be able to finish Ball passes. I expect Ball to average over 8 assists per game and for a rookie this is amazing. Ball also gets a lot of rebounds for a guard and this will be a plus. To understand how good Lonzo Ball counting stats are I will just tell you that in the 14 years of Las Vegas Summer League nobody had a triple double and Lonzo just got 2 of those this summer (he was very close to get the third). He got the MVP award in the Summer League already with an impressive stat line of 16.3 points, 7.5 rebounds, 9.3 assists and 2.5 steals. If can get close to that in the NBA this award should be his. He will also have a nice narrative because I believe the Lakers will improve this season and prime will consider that he is one of the main reasons for that. The other big favorite for the award is Ben Simmons and while I like him a lot I think that he has a major disadvantage compared to Lonzo. He has 2 other high usage players in Fultz and Embiid that he will have to share the ball and his stats will most likely won't be as amazing.
