76ers Reactions To Malcolm Brogdon Winning Rookie Of The Year

Sixers' Joel Embiid and Dario Saric both named NBA All-Rookie First Team

The first seven picks of the 2017 draft were freshmen, followed by an 18-year-old prospect from France, followed by four more freshmen and two sophomores. It is a story the league needed to honor with their top Rookie award.

His stats were not off the charts but as a second rounder, and the impact he gave to the Milwaukee Bucks gave put him in serious contention to be the #Rookie of the Year.

It capped off the NBA Awards show on Monday night, which included stirring tributes to Monty Williams, Craig Sager and Bill Russell. Those two, along with Embiid, are finalists for Rookie of the Year.

Embiid obviously would have won the award had he stayed healthy this season.

The win for Brogdon makes it a historic night for Bucks fans.

Bill Russell received the first Lifetime Achievement award.

"I think he should be Rookie of the Year, for what he has done being drafted in the second round", said Bucks head coach Jason Kidd, according to Charles F. Gardner of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel. Is Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid the most talented? Brogdon, who is the first second-round player to win this award in the common draft era, averaged 10.2 points, 4.2 assists, 2.8 rebounds and 1.1 steals.

Embiid, a 7-foot, 250-pound center, played in 31 games averaging 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists and 2.5 blocks while averaging 25 minutes a game.
