How Well Do You Know Joel Embiid's Rookie Highlights? (VIDEO QUIZ)

Can you go 10 for 10?

Joel Embiid had one of the most impressive rookie campaigns in recent memory... in just 31 games.

He proved himself to be one of the best big men in the game while he averaged 20.2 points and 7.8 rebounds in just 25 minutes a game. Seemingly every single night he would do something that would blow the minds of NBA fans across the league. In less than half of a season this 7 2" monster compiled one of the best highlight reels in the entire league.

If you are given a freeze frame of each situation, do you think you can guess what spectacular play Embiid made? Take this quiz to find out.

How Well Do You Know Derek Jeter? (Quiz)

The Captain.

"Now batting for the Yankees, the shortstop, number 2, Derek Jeter! Number 2!"

It only seems like yesterday when we last heard Bob Sheppard voice Derek Jeter's final at-bat before he head off into the sunset. It's an appropriate introduction for an appropriate legend.

Jeter was, and still is, my favorite athlete. For him, it's not just about his on-the-field accomplishments, but his off-the-field ones as well. He's a class act, and if I were to one day meet him, I would be so thankful.

Anyways, the YES Network (Yankees Entertainment and Sports Network, regional sports channel that broadcasts Yankees games) is about to stage Jeter Week, a week of programming full of Jeter tributes leading up to Mother's Day -- on that day, Derek Jeter's No. 2 jersey will be retired by the team.

In honor of this feat, and the man himself, test your knowledge on Jeter by taking this 15-question quiz on his career.

How Well Do You Know "The Wolf Of Wall Street"? (Video Quiz)

Can you go 8/8?

The Wolf of Wall Street was one of the best movies of this decade, if not this generation. Leonardo DiCaprio did an absolutely magnificent job depicting the ridiculous life of the one and only Jordan Belfort.

This has been one of the most quotable movies of the decade, up there with The Hangover and The Dark Knight (I could actually just watch those three movies in rotation for my whole life and be perfectly content). Here is a video quiz testing your knowledge of some of the best quotes of the movie:

Can you get 100 percent of these questions correct?



*Honorable Mention:

1. Jordan Belfort: On a daily basis I consume enough drugs to sedate Manhattan, Long Island, and Queens for a month. I take Quaaludes 10-15 times a day for my "back pain", Adderall to stay focused, Xanax to take the edge off, pot to mellow me out, cocaine to wake me back up again, and morphine... Well, because it's awesome.

2. Donnie Azoff: Fucking smoke crack with me.

3. Max Belfort: What kind of a hooker takes credit cards?

Donnie Azoff: A rich one!

Does Joel Embiid Deserve Rookie Of The Year?

The Process thinks he does.

Finally, the NBA regular season has come to a close. Although the Sixers' record may not show success, fans would think otherwise. Not only have the Sixers improved from last season, but they most certainly have a bright future ahead.

The best part of the season for all Sixers fans, including myself, was being able to witness Joel Embiid dominate each game he played in. In my eyes, he's a stand out player not only on the court, but through his personality as well.

Many Sixers fans (including myself) have been asking the same question after the Sixers' last game on Wednesday. Does Joel Embiid deserve Rookie of the Year?

Well, he certainly thinks he does. In an interview with ESPN's Jackie MacMullen, The Process himself had this to say about who should be Rookie of the Year:

"I mean, no disrespect to other guys. Dario [Saric] is my teammate and my friend, and I love him. And I know Malcolm [Brogdon] from when I was visiting schools. When I made my visit to Virginia, he took me around. They both had great seasons. I know people are saying about me, 'Oh, he only played 31 games.' But look at what I did in those 31 games -- averaging the amount of points I did in just 25 minutes. I'm not sure why people want to punish me for that."

"Even going back to the All-Star Game, I didn't get chosen for that, and people were killing me because I didn't play 30 minutes a game. But here's what I don't understand: If I put up those numbers in less time than another guy, what's the difference? Doesn't it mean I did more in less time? Wait until I play as many minutes as those guys, then you will see what I do. But people have their own ideas about how they vote for things."

Despite only playing 31 games in the regular season, he has put up exceptional numbers and has wowed the entire league with his talent. However, 31 games isn't enough to be worthy of Rookie of the Year.

Because of his limited playing time during the season, he wasn't able to carry the Sixers to where they probably should have been this year. Yes, for as little as he played, his numbers were phenomenal, but it's still important as a team player to play throughout the entire season instead of sitting on the bench being injured.

I feel that part of earning Rookie of the Year is having an impact on your team for the entire season, not just for one month (yes, I'm referring to the amazing month the Sixers had in January).

As much as I love the Sixers and Joel Embiid, his limited time on the court isn't gonna make the cut for Rookie of the Year, and that's the harsh reality of it all. There are plenty of other players who worked just as hard as Embiid did, but played more games and got more minutes on the court, thus giving the other candidates (like Dario Saric and Malcolm Brogdon) an advantage.

However, if Embiid played the entire season, he would easily be Rookie of the Year, no questions asked.

Even if Embiid doesn't win Rookie of the Year, it won't be the end of the world. I say this because once Embiid is healthy and able to play an entire season along side with Ben Simmons and Dario Saric, every team in the league better watch out. So, although Embiid will most likely not get the honor, the process will be worth the wait and the Sixers will soon one of the NBA's most dominant teams.

Always remember to trust the process.

The Curious Case Of The NBA Rookie Of The Year

Who really deserves it?

The NBA's rookie class has been far from impressive this year. Top pick Ben Simmons is sitting out this year due to injury, and second overall pick Brandon Ingram has strayed just about as far as he can from pre-draft comparisons of Kevin Durant.

The top three rookies are just about unanimous; Joel Embiid, Malcolm Brogdon, and Dario Saric. Saric is averaging 12.2 points, 6.3 rebounds, and 2.2 assists per game, while Brogdon is averaging 9.9 points, 2.7 rebounds, and 4 assists per game. Embiid's stats absolutely blow both of them out of the water-- 20.2 points, 7.8 rebounds, 2.1 assists, and 2.5 blocks per game. However, Embiid has only played 31 games on a 28 minute restriction due to both rest and injury.

Embiid was slated to win without a question until he was sidelined. He's putting up not only impressive numbers for a rookie, but for big men across the league, earning praise everywhere he played from James Harden, DeMarcus Cousins, and many others. His highlights are absolutely jaw dropping. The argument against him is that the award is Rookie of THE YEAR, and Embiid didn't play enough games-- I disagree.

Patrick Ewing and Vince Carter both won the award with just 50 games, Kyrie Irving won it with 51. Yes, 31 is significantly less, and I'm not arguing that. Embiid simply did not play many games. However, the argument I have against Brogdon and Saric is that they did not have enough GOOD games to grant them the award flat out over Embiid.

Brogdon has scored 20 points or more just twice this season, Saric has done it 11 times, but nine of those have come since Embiid was sidelined for the remainder of the season.

In Embiid's 31 games played, he scored 20 or more in 19 of them. Yes, there is a handful of games to go, and many other statistics are to be considered for a "good game", but I seriously doubt either come anywhere close to Embiid's numbers. And if you really are persistent about advanced metrics, Embiid's are overwhelming with regards to how the 76ers play with him on and off the court.

For me, you at least have to give Embiid a share of the award-- it's happened three times before. In '70-'71, it was Geoff Petrie and Dave Cowens. In '94-'95 Jason Kidd and Grant Hill, and in '99-'00 Steve Francis and Elton Brand.

If anything, you let Embiid and Saric share the award. Without Embiid's absence, Saric is nowhere near the conversation... but I may just be a greedy 76ers fan.
