Many people believe Blake Griffin shouldn't count for this year's Rookie of the Year, mainly because he got to see what the game was about from the bench. He also was the first pick last season and got to practice with the team. I don't know.
One thing I do know is Landry Fields would be number 1 to win Rookie of the Year so far in this season. Landry Fields is averaging 10.4 points on 51.5 percent shooting and averaging over 7 rebounds a game. He is a fan favorite as the steal of the draft and also coincidentally wearing Lebron changed number 6, maybe a symbol of the real hero of NY.
Landry Fields for Rookie of the Year.
