  1. Kristaps Porzingis, New York Knicks

Before the season started, many thought Porzingis would only be an offensive minded big, but not even that until he was able to add more muscle.

Through 4 games, while Porzingis has been fairly consistent with his scoring while averaging nearly 12 points a game, he has been filling up the stat sheet while ranking 2nd among rookies in rebounding and steals and tied for 3rd in blocks.

The 7’3″ power forward/center capped his play this week by tallying 13 points, 14 rebounds, 3 steals, and 2 blocks in just 24 minutes on Monday night.
