Because we expected anything else. Zion Williamson, after a season of exhilarating dunks and smooth transition play and stat-stuffer after stat-stuffer, won the AP Player of the Year Award with almost no opposition. He earned 59 of the 64 total votes, with teammate RJ Barrett claiming two of the remaining five. Michigan State’s Cassius Winston, Virginia’s De’Andre Hunter, and Murray State’s Ja Morant each scored one of the three remaining ballots.
Regardless of what happens in the coming days, we cannot forget how lucky we have been this year. Bleed blue.
