NBA Freshmen 15

Last year didn’t have one single rookie that stood head and shoulders above the rest.  Rookie of the Year Malcolm Brogdon was great, but there were a lot of other rookies doing good things.  Here are five different top threes of NBA Freshmen from last year.  I’m including anyone who played at least 200 minutes (So apologies to any big Cheick Diallo fans, as he only played 199 minutes last year, according to Basketball Reference).

Hopefully you’ll find your favorite rookie below – and some hope that he will take this top three rating of NBA freshmen and continue to improve!
