YES, let’s have a three-way battle for Rookie of the Year between Embiid, Ben Simmons and Markelle Fultz! But seriously, how in the hell does that get past an editor?! Our very own Nick Piccone wouldn’t have missed it, just saying.
What I think the graphic meant to say was how many games each player participated in during their rookie seasons, but as you can see in the top left hand corner, it says the last five seasons.
It wasn’t clarified very well.
