Stirring It Up: Should Joel Embiid Win the Rookie of the Year?
The Bitter Birds make their case for Joel Embiid and the Rookie of the Year Award. Embiid taking the title would shatter the least games played record of Patrick Ewing, who played 50 and 45% of the team's minutes. Embiid played 31 games and 20% of team's minutes. Our argument is strictly due to the ineptness of the rookie class and Embiid's greatness and effectiveness despite a limited sample size.
