    Zion ain’t the ROTY. It’s Ja Morant, hands down. Zion has missed too many games to win ROTY.

    ja is ROY because if you have to say “if zion played all year or if he gets his team to the playoffs”! JA HAS PLAYED ALL SEASON AND HE ACTUALLY HAS HIS TEAM IN THE PLAYOFFS! if zion does doesn’t beat what JA is actually doing!

    Thank u max for saying Ben Simmons bc he doesn’t get enough credit bro he’s been putting up great numbers and has the best record at home and is the best on the team rn as we speak. Also his defense is such a beauty to watch like he’s so good at defense it is as fun to watch his dense as much of his offense. And this is not saying he can’t do anything offensively bc he is arguably the best passer in the league and is unstoppable in the paint. People be straight hating on this dude bc of his jumper but don’t sit and watch the game. He will strap up ur best player while controlling the game offensively.

    Ja Morant easily, unless Zion can lead his team to the playoffs with the time he has left

    For me Ja gets it, he’s played like a beast the hole season and maybe if Zion wasn’t injured I’ll give it to him but Ja deserves no one was expecting h grizzlies to be 8th 😂 and Zion is great but evening acting like he’s gonna win a championship or come at least top 3 his first season which will not be the case 🤷‍♂️

    I think Ja wins the ROTY. But everybody know that Zion is better than him. If he played since the start of the season didnt get injured he will win it for sure but Ja deserves because he stayed healthy and played the whole season. ZION IS STILL BETTER THAN JA NO QUESTIONS, HE GOT BETTER STATS COMPARED TO LUKA AND LEBRON ON THEIR ROOKIE SEASON, BUT HE DIDNT PLAY THE WHOLE SEASON.
