Mr. Me Too: Michael Carter Williams’ historic rookie debut

On a night when Philly hon­ored its best player in the last 20 years, a Rookie forced him­self into the spot­light with a his­toric night.

Rook­ies have had great debuts and early sea­son games before. Der­rick Rose was great in his first NBA game  and he went on to win MVP a few years later. At the same time, Bran­don Jen­nings dropped 55 points in just his 7th pro game… and that still may be looked at as the high point of his career.

It’s too early to say which way Michael Carter Williams is headed, but in a sea­son where his team was sup­posed to be pretty much unwatch­able, he did put the world on notice!

Dev Kabir Malik has a clinically alarming dependence on basketball and spends most of his time watching, analyzing, writing and even playing a little pickup (and some 2K too). In the little time he has left, he dabbles with design, art & music.
