A Twitter thread on some De'Anthony Melton solidness: https://twitter.com/frontofficeeye/status/1049791221940531200

I am so annoyed he is a Sun. That dumb of a franchise doesn't deserve such a smart player.

Doncic has to distribute a lot more and for whatever reason, I don't think he'll get as much national attention. Mavs are just more loaded.


My reasoning is slightly different, but the result is the same. I have a feeling that the Suns are going to be a "surprise" team this year. I doubt that they will make the playoffs, but I won't be surprised if they win 35ish games. That is the sort of narrative that would make Ayton the RoY. Meanwhile, I don't think that the Mavs will be more than a 25-30 win team. For that reason, I don't think that Doncic will get as much national attention.

My dude Kenrich Williams goes from undrafted to making the Pelicans 15-man roster. It may take him a few years, but dude is eventually going to sneak up on the league like Joe Ingles.

He's a definite dark horse, but he might get lost in the Kings odd frontcourt shuffle early in the season when rookie impressions seem to get set in stone.

But he's a fun, skilled player and a real building block for Sacto (health permitting). Check this fun pass: https://twitter.com/jackfrank_jjf/status/1051567130578104320

Ayton seems like a likely 19-10 guy out of the gate, but I expect the Suns to be one of the bottom five teams in the NBA while the Mavs could be a sneaky contender for the 8th seed. So Doncic could get a winning team bump even if his numbers are conventionally more pedestrian than Ayton's.


is that a thing? Usually the ROY is purely box score driven. I recall last year there was an article that broke down stats and illustrated the rookie that simply had the most Points+Rebounds+Assists had won the award almost every year except a handful in the last 20-30 years.
