Philadelphia 76ers forward Ben Simmons is one of the favorites to win the NBA Rookie of the Year despite this being his second year in the league. Since he did not participate in any games his first year, Simmons is considered a rookie by the league. Working out and practicing doesn't make you an NBA player, playing in actual games does, so he's classified correctly. But others feel his second-year status should automatically make him a non-rookie. It's not fair to actual rookies. What do you think? 🏀
