Carter-Williams earned 104 of a possible 124 first-place votes from a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters selected by the NBA.

“Michael made an immediate impact on the court this season, but his dedication, professionalism and contributions to both the organization and the Philadelphia community make him all the more deserving of this 2013-14 NBA Rookie of the Year award,” said Sixers Managing Owner Josh Harris. “This is an incredibly proud moment for the 76ers and one we are thrilled to share with him, the city and our fans.”

AS HAPPY As Sixers coach Brett Brown was yesterday when point guard Michael Carter-Williams was named NBA rookie of the year, he said he could not yet exhale.

It's too early in the process for one moment of success to cloud the picture of how much more work there is to do in this remake of the Sixers' franchise from the bottom to the top.

Brown knew exactly what he was getting into when he accepted the task of coaching the Sixers last August, but even though he has been transparent with himself and the fan base about the nature of the challenge, he needed a reason to breathe a tiny sigh of relief.

When a team is coming off a challenging season that featured 63 losses and a record-tying 26-game losing streak, silver linings cannot be ignored.
