The 2017-2018 NBA season welcomed many talented rookies from all over the world, but only one player can be crowned the 2018 NBA Rookie of the Year. During their first year in the league, the best NBA rookies will rise above the rest. A strong NBA debut can lead to a bright future in basketball, so these top NBA rooks must step up their game to hang with the pros. What are your 2018 Rookie of the Year predictions? 

Los Angeles Lakers rookie Lonzo Ball has been hyped up even before joining the league, thanks to his overzealous dad, LaVar Ball. The number two draft pick has shown great prowess during the summer, even being named Summer League MVP. Other 2018 ROTY contenders include Markelle Fultz, Jayson Tatum, De'Aaron Fox, and Dennis Smith, Jr.

Sidelined due to injuries, 2016 number one pick Ben Simmons is considered a rookie for the 2017-18 season. Other sleepers who are potential ROTY candidates and climbing the ladder rankings are Kyle Kuzma, Malik Monk, Donovan Mitchell, Justin Jackson, and Caleb Swanigan. 

Vote for the player you think deserves to be the 2017-18 NBA Rookie of the Year. Make your 2018 NBA ROTY predictions, and add any deserving NBA rookies missing from this list.
