Are popularity and even xenophobia affecting the ROY race? | The Jump
- Published: 02 April 2019
- Jorge Sedano, Amin Elhassan and Marc J. Spears of The Jump react to a tweet from Brooklyn Nets guard D'Angelo Russell that the NBA should give out co-MVP and co-Rookie of the Year awards this season, presumably to Giannis Antetokounmpo of the Milwaukee Bucks and James Harden of the Houston Rockets, and Luka Doncic of the Dallas Mavericks and Trae Young of the Atlanta Hawks. They then (3:12) discuss whether Young is closing the ROY gap on Doncic, with Elhassan and Spears debating whether popularity and even xenophobia are influencing the race.
