Phil Naessens had me on his show today (in the third segment starting at 29:18) to talk about the NBA Rookie of the year race. We obviously had to talk about Jabari Paker's injury, and how that opens things up for Andrew Wiggins and Nerlens Noel . We also talk about some of the higher highly performing rookies this season like Bojan Bogdanovic, Zach LaVine, Kosta Papanikolaou, Elfrid Payton, Nikola Mirotic . . . and everyone's favorite Dante Exum.

Listen to it all here at Phil's site, or just be lazy and listen below.

Also read my post on this topic here at the same time!

And thanks again the Phil for having me on the show as a guest! And I'm not the best writer at SB Nation, or even this site! You are too kind.
