All this unnecessary hype around Lonzo Ball is fine. Ben Simmons will continue to be the best rookie in this class. There is no other first-year player this year that is more NBA ready than him. 

Simmons has the body to compete against established veterans and demonstrate he can still dominate a game with his unreal court vision. He has rare athleticism, and guard skills that make him impossible to guard. 

Simmons is the best rookie this year, and it's not even close.

Simmons may be bigger, but that doesn't mean he is better. Ball can dictate the pace of a game as a point guard and has shown explosive scoring ability with his unorthodox, but effective long-range shot. 

Ball also has underrated athleticism he doesn't often sho, but he has enough to compete with the quicker guards in the NBA. Simmons can pass, but so can Ball. At least Ball can be depended on to score inside and out as well. 

If you want a rookie to hitch your wagon to, it's Ball.
