Here’s a little play off the game “who would you rather?” but this time we want to know who would you rather collect?
Michael Carter-Williams and Victor Oladipo are two of the hottest rookies in the NBA. On Tuesday night, they both had triple-doubles marking the first time in history two rookies did it in the same game.
Carter-Williams had 27 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists for Philadelphia and Oladipo had 26 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for Orlando.
Carter-Williams has been a surprise for the 76ers, who many thought might tank this season and aim for that lottery pick. He was selected 11th in the 2013 NBA Draft out of Syracuse. Carter-Williams is averaging 17.7 points per game, which is slightly down after his hot start.
Oladipo is averaging 13.9 points a game, but has shown plenty of flash this season to garner attention. Oladipo has scored in double digits in all but three of his 18 games this season. He was taken second overall by the Orlando Magic and has given fans a reason to cheer in a 6-12 season so far.
Neither player has many cards on the market yet. Just three NBA products have been released so far from Panini America, but which of these two would you rather collect?
