The unicorn didn’t have an ideal sophomore season. Despite obvious improvements, the young big man wasn’t able to gain a consistent rhythm due to the lingering injuries that caused him to miss 16 games.
However, the 21-year-old still became a dominant two-way player in his second season. He became one of 15 players in the history of the league to block 100 shots and make 100 threes in the same season.
Porzingis achieved some nice individual success when he won the Skills Challenge at NBA All-Star Weekend, but an award chosen by the fans would be a nice feather in his cap.
The competition is stiff so if you want the unicorn to win get in your vote.
