MALCOLM BROGDON IS THE 2017 NBA ROOKIE OF THE YEAR.
That will never get old.
The Prez became Virginia’s second ever NBA Rookie of the Year, joining 1984’s Ralph Sampson. Twitter reacted appropriately.

Except this one. It’s creepy as hell.
Philly’s Joel Embiid, who was also up for the award, was quick to offer a heartfelt congratulations.
Malcolm’s former and current teammates got in on the action as well.
Is Bango a teammate? Let’s go with yes.
Former Wahoo (now Niner) Eli Harold:
