NBA Rookie Stock Watch: Is Michael Carter-Williams the Runaway Favorite?

With under a month remaining in the 2013-14 regular season, it's time we revisited the NBA Rookie Stock Watch.

Adam Fromal last handled ranking duties back on March 1, which means we've gone quite a while since checking the ticker. Since that time, Giannis Antetokounmpo crashed into the wall, Tim Hardaway Jr. has been exposed and Trey Burke has quietly shaken up the top three spots.

Remember, we're looking at a combination of season-long performance and recent play, with extra emphasis on the latter. The NBA is a "what have you done for me lately?" league, so it's only fair we add special weight to the last few weeks.

As such, we're drawing a distinction between games played before and after March 1. You'll see the players' splits in each slide, which should provide context for the jumps (or dives) in their stocks.

The season is winding down, which means guys like Burke and Victor Oladipo are running out of time to make up ground on perennial rookie leader Michael Carter-Williams. Let's see how they (and the rest of the league's first-year talents) have fared in the latest edition of Rookie Stock Watch.
