Our latest SB Nation Reacts poll is here, and it’s the Post-Draft Edition, meaning all the questions are national and league-wide. Our first question asked our voters who they thought would be NBA Rookie of the Year this season.
Those are your top four finishers on the graph, and here’s the total results on every player that was in the poll:
- LaMelo Ball 27%
- Obi Toppin 21%
- James Wiseman 14%
- Anthony Edwards 13%
- Jalen Smith 7%
- Killian Hayes 6%
- Deni Avdija 6%
- Onyeka Okongwu 3%
- Patrick Williams 2%
- Isaac Okoro 2%
Our second question asked our voters what team had the best draft night in their opinion, and this one might hurt a bit for Houston Rockets fans.
According to our league-wide voters, former Rockets GM Daryl Morey nailed the draft, which is not something we were really used to as Houston fans, because he often traded away his picks or any assets obtained with the picks he did have. Good for the Philadelphia 76ers, I guess. But new Houston GM Rafael Stone had himself a pretty good week as well, just more under the radar (which is how I prefer it, quite honestly).
Our third and final question asked our voters who was the biggest draft night steal.
Seems pretty definitive for Deni Avdija, the 6’9” small forward formerly of Maccabi Tel Aviv that was drafted ninth overall by the Washington Wizards. I went Cole Anthony, but who knows about these kind of things. All speculation, obviously.
With the start of the season right around the corner, we need more voters. Head over here to sign up for SB Nation Reacts. You’ll get a poll every week!
