CRAZY COOL GROOVY CONGRATULATIONS goes out to MILWAUKEE BUCKS Guard #13 MALCOLM BROGDON for having overcome the odds of being a second-round pick in the 2016 NBA DRAFT, having a wonderful 2016 - 17 NBA SEASON, and; on Monday, June 26, at the 2017 NBA AWARDS LIVE On TNT at BASKETBALL CITY - PIER 36 - SOUTH STREET in NEW YORK CITY winning the KIA 2016 - 17 NBA ROOKIE OF the YEAR AWARD!!!
It feels even better the next day! So blessed and grateful for this recognition. For me, this award proves that you can out work all of the critics, coaches and scouts that said you'll never make it to the next level. You can achieve anything when you put the work in and have unwavering faith in yourself and God. My family has been right here with me way before any awards or drafts and I wouldn't have made it this far without them. Thank you all so much. This was a great end to an awesome rookie year and I'm ready to see what next season's got because I'm not done working!
