Memphis Grizzlies’ Ja Morant was officially selected as the NBA 2020 Rookie of the Year.

Even with Zion Williamson playing during the 2019-2020 NBA season, Ja Morant was the one who ultimately won the ROTY, mostly for his amazing performance throughout the season and leading the Grizzlies inside the NBA bubble.

Ja Morant was drafted during the 2019 NBA Draft with the second pick overall, and he overcame all odds, winning the award with 99/100 votes received, earning 498 total points. Miami Heat guard Kendrick Nunn finished in second place with 204 points.

This could be the beginning of a new superstar in the making for the NBA. Congrats, Ja!
