NBA 2017 Rookie of the Year

Monday night’s NBA Awards was an incredible star studded evening. Drake played comedian and host, while Nicki Minaj performed with 2 Chainz. Since you’ve most likely been following the basketball season, you’ve seen a rise in popularity of the Milwaukee Bucks. The klout the Bucks have gained this season has grabbed my particular attention because I love un-trends and buzzer beater games. Talent without [too much] hype is where some of the best games take place. And although the Bucks tend to have a niche fan base, their determination on the court speaks for itself.

With that said, the Milwaukee Bucks have been relentless this year in their rise to the playoffs and Brogdon, undoubtedly played a major part in that success. Of course, his teammates are also to thank (i.e 2017 Most Improved Player, The Greek Freak, Giannis Antetokounmpo) but when a rookie dunks on Lebron James, and hits 87% of his free throws, there’s no denying star quality.

On Monday, Brogdon’s hard work, patience, talent, and sportsmanship, when he accepted the much deserved NBA Rookie of the Year award, lending his success to faith, his mom, and God. Brogdon is the first non-first-round draft pick to win the award.  I’m fortunate enough to have met this kind gentleman and couldn’t be more supportive of his and all of the Milwaukee Bucks’ success.
