The NBA announced Wednesday that LaMelo Ball had been selected as the best rookie of the season in the NBA. The young base of the Charlotte
Hornets wins the award after a sensational first year in the best league in the world.
Ball has 465 votes to 309 for Anthony Edwards in the race for him Rookie of the Year. There were doubts if the injury that kept him out for more than 30 games between March and April would weigh down his options, but Ball has finally won the award.
Besides the two of them, Ty haliburton (Kings) and Saddiq bey (Pistons) also got some vote from journalists. It is the season with the fewest players in the list since this type of voting was established in 2003.
The great year of Anthony Edwards, which went from less to more in the Tibmerwolves after a horrible start of course, It was not enough to take from Ball a more than deserved award.
LaMelo came to the NBA wrapped in a sea of criticism and doubts of those who did not trust his game and doubted his commitment. The little one of the Balls has shown not only that he has a niche in the league but that he can be a star in a few years.
