Ben Simmons Arrogantly Guarantees He's The ROY

Sixers Ben Simmons is already among best in NBA at cutting to basket

At 50-30, the Sixers are 20 games over.500 for the first time since end of the 2000-01 season.

Simmons' biggest competition for the ROY honors will be Utah Jazz guard Donovan Mitchell, who has had his own incredible rookie campaign, averaging a rookie-high 20.4 points and setting the National Basketball Association record by becoming the fastest rookie in history to hit 150 3-point shots, accomplishing the feat in 63 games, beating the prior record by 5 games.

Have any other rookies caught Simmons's eye? If you ask Simmons, it's an easy decision.

So who is your pick? "Me, 100 percent", Simmons said. The group has continued to improve and those things are that I will remember the most. If you look at the numbers, you will see. The 76ers shot 50.5 percent from the field and hit eight of 27 three point attempts in the game while winning the rebounding battle 52-43.

Martinez this offseason, and they'll have the benefit of Rafael Devers for a full season after he started 2017 in the minors. Lin, who is 24, hit.268 with a pair of triples in just 66 appearances at the plate during his rookie season in 2017.

Speaking with ESPN in downtown Philadelphia over the weekend, Simmons spoke about the Rookie of the Year Award.

Simmons was selected by Philadelphia with the first pick in the draft in 2016. In 39 minutes, Prince collected 33 points, 5 assists, 8 rebounds, 1 steal, 1 block and 7 threes with 5 turnovers. "Along with their 6'10" point forward, the team features Joel Embiid, who is fast becoming one of the most dominant two-way players in the game. During their current win streak, they have won 10 of 14 games by double figures.

Ben Simmons scored 16 points as the Philadelphia 76ers routed the Dallas Mavericks to extend their winning streak to 14 games in the Eastern Conference playoff race on Sunday.

Ben Simmons' latest comments apparently raised some eyebrows - Donovan Mitchell's included.

Rio Tinto plc (RIO) stock is Likely to be considered risky?
To measure price-variation, we found RIO's volatility during a week at 1.78% and during a month it has been found around 1.91%. Investors often use this ratio to evaluate what a stock's fair market value should be by predicting future earnings per share.

The reason being Westbrook was unable to string together 10 wins in a row last season, which makes Simmons' achievement all the more impressive. Their 50th victory of the season clinched home-court advantage in the first round of the Eastern Conference playoffs.

Right now, the 76ers have actually managed to pass the Cleveland Cavaliers in the standings, setting up a potential Celtics 76ers battle in the second round of the playoffs.

Obviously, Mitchell doesn't share Simmons' views here. He backs it up and, I believe, deserves Rookie of the Year. Mitchell leads all the first-year players in scoring, but that's his only advantage. Their two biggest stars, Kyrie Irving and Gordon Hayward will miss the postseason and even though the team is still a potent squad led by rookie Jason Tatum and veteran big man Al Horford Philly is getting a big break in a potential second round bout. If that is the case, we will be getting the ultimate futures battle, with arguably the two best young cores going head to head in a way that we nearly never get to see.
