R.J. Barrett, Knicks
R.J. Barrett was the third pick in NBA draft lotteries by the New York Knicks. While the Knicks doesn’t have that many great players, Barrett is their current star despite being a rookie. Barrett is already compared with the likes of NBA superstars such as James Harden and Giannis Antetokounmpo. Even though the survey has voted only 5% for Barrett, there are high chances he wins the rookie title for NBA 2019-20 season.
