Konecny took game to new heights this season May 11, 2018
Only 20-years-of-age coming in to the 2017-18 season, nobody would have been surprised, least not the player himself, if Travis Konecny would have suffered a bit of a sophomore slump. But after impressing in his rookie campaign as a 19-year-old, the London-native took his game to a whole new level this season, while holding on to the fire and intensity that helped him be so effective as a rookie. The 2015 1st round pick played a key role in Philadelphia’s return to the playoffs, nearly doubling his point total from last season (28 to 47), while becoming a more responsible, two-way player (+17 rating).
