Andrew Wiggins, Jabari Parker Named NBA Rookies of the Month
Andrew Wiggins and Jabari Parker have been linked together since the beginning of time.
Wiggins, the #1 overall pick has always been associated with the word potential, while Parker (#2 overall) has been viewed as the most NBA ready off the jump in terms of production.
However, a month into the season and the numbers suggest the race is closer than some expected in terms of production, as both were named NBA rookies of the month for October and November in Eastern & Western Conferences respectively.
Wiggins is currently averaging 11.7 points, 3.6 rebounds, 1.1 assists and 1.2 steals, while Parker has the edge averaging 12.2 points, 6.1 rebounds, 1.7 assists and 1.3 steals.
As we continue to track the season, look for both players to continue building comfort in the league.
