Ben Simmons ain't a rookie. NBA awards 2 weeks after the Finals are over is dumb.

Oscar got the NBA Lifetime Achievement award.

The NBA says Simmons is a rookie, they've had it that way all year. No need to cry about it anymore.
Also, all along, we were told that Simmons was going to get the ROY, and Harden the MVP, and that's the way it happened.

Simmons is a rookie, the NBA classified him as one this season.

Rookie - Wikipedia
In the National Basketball Association, a rookie is any player who has never played a game in the NBA until that year. The NBA awards the best rookie with the NBA Rookie of the Year Award, as voted upon by a selected panel of United States and Canadian sportswriters and broadcasters.

Honestly, I really don't care if Simmons was a rookie or that he got consideration for ROY. Michael Carter Williams got ROY a few years back and is barely hanging on to stay in the league. Nice award for Ben, he deserved it and fit the criteria of the ROY award.
