The Oklahoma City Thunder wing Jalen Williams commends Chet Holmgren’s remarkable rookie campaign, noting his resilience in playing through injuries and his significant contributions to OKC’s ascent towards the top of the conference.

Williams highlights Holmgren’s potential Rookie of the Year case, citing his impressive statistical performance. With Holmgren’s impact evident in the team’s substantial improvement from last season, Williams underscores the rookie’s pivotal role in OKC’s success.

“What’s his case for Rookie of the Year? Well, I think his numbers speak for themselves,” Williams said. “He’s put together a hell of a year so far. We were basically .500 last year without him, and now we already have 50 wins. To me, that’s a pretty good.”
