Michael Carter-Williams Earns Second Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month Award

Don't let the baby face fool you... - Ed Szczepanski-USA TODAY Sports

Michael Carter-Williams joins Allen Iverson as the only two players in Philadelphia 76ers' history to win Rookie of the Month honors on multiple occasions.

The accolades continue to pile up for Michael Carter-Williams as the Philadelphia 76ers' point guard was named the Eastern Conference Rookie of the Month for January.

Carter-Williams, who also won the award in October/November, is only the second Sixer to earn Rookie of the Month honors twice in a single season (Allen Iverson accomplished the feat in 1996-97).

Last month, Carter-Williams averaged 16.5 points, 5.6 rebounds and 5.6 assists per game. The first-year guard scored 20 points or more on six separate occasions, including a career-high 33 against the Cleveland Cavaliers on January 7.

Two Rookie of the Month trophies plus an invite to this month's Rising Stars Challenge virtually guarantees MCW a spot on the shortlist for the NBA's Rookie of the Year Award (along with Orlando's Victor Oladipo and Utah's Trey Burke who, coincidentally, just won his second Rookie of the Month Award).

Prior to last night, Carter-Williams led all NBA rookies in scoring (17.3 PPG), rebounding (5.4 RPG), assists (6.6 APG) and steals (2.3 SPG).
