Victor Oladipo should be the favorite to win Rookie of the Year honors this season
Cohen’s Opinion: Convinced
Oladipo showed at Summer League he has a ton of potential. He is extraordinarily athletic, multidimensional and a stifling defender. He also has all the intangibles and internal fortitude to succeed.
Particularly because some of the other rookies, including Anthony Bennett, Nerlens Noel, CJ McCollum and Alex Len, are all injured or coming off injuries, Oladipo seems like a safe pick at this point to ultimately win the award.
