Rookie of the Year?

No one around the league believed that Joel Embiid could come out as strong as he has this season. On a minute limit due to his fragile health, and taking his introduction into the league slowly, Embiid is still dominating stats around the league for this year’s rookie class. He is averaging per 36 minutes that are only comparably to the great Wilt Chamberlain’s rookie season.

Not only is he dominating per 36 minutes stats versus his rookie competition, but he is also dominating regular stats, even those he is only averaging 25.2 minutes per game this season. Click here to check out the Rookie Stats from around the league.
