2023 NBA Rookie Of The Year Officially Announced

The 2023 NBA rookie class may not have been the deepest in recent memory, but there are certainly a few big stars in the mix, and on Tuesday night, the least surprising of the NBA season awards to this point was officially announced.

With an incredible 98 of a possible 100 first-place votes, the 2023 NBA Rookie of the Year has officially been revealed as the Orlando Magic's Paolo Banchero, the 2022 No. 1 overall draft pick, who had an incredible season on both ends of the floor.

On the season, Banchero averaged 20.0 points, 6.9 rebounds and 3.7 assists, and with the young core down in Orlando with Franz Wagner, Cole Anthony and Jalen Suggs among others, this is a team to watch going forward.
