Ben Simmons is one of the favorites to win Rookie of the Year despite being drafted one season ago. The Philadelphia 76ers prospect missed all of last season with an injury and is expected to debut this year. Simmons revealed he isn’t concerned with winning Rookie of the Year and views his peers above the current first year core.
“My goal is to be the best in the league. I’m not worried about other rookies — I’m worried about the guys at the top, and that’s where I want to be.”
Simmons having such high goals is great but the other rookies may have extra incentive to go at him when facing Philadelphia now.
