Default Donovan Mitchell Is Stupidly Good

That is all. Incredibly fun player to watch. Very slim chance he might beat out Simmons for ROY if he keeps ascending as he has been...but that chance is super slim.

Mitchell is rated higher but voters prefer triple doubles

I wonder if they transition him into a PG, how many bounce passes can he make.

TBF, Simmons has a higher PPG, RPG, APG, SPG, BPG, TS%, DRtg (lower in this case), and ORtg.

It's not just the triple doubles. Simmons is a damn good player. Averaging 18/9/7/2/1 on 50%.

He has a lot of swagger for a rookie. Confidence is key, and he has it.

He has the size to play 2 guard a lot of the time too, which makes him a very flexible play next to Rubio, since they can both guard both guard positions. With Gobert, nobody should be able to score on the Jazz.

The Jazz offense doesn't really have a pg. Several people bring up the ball/initiate the offense/etc. Why their clown of a Gm thought Rubio could fit in that offense is beyond me. I imagine once the painful Rubio experiment is over Mitchell will essentially be assigned the pg defensively where his length will play best but even on that side they use their length so they can switch a lot. He will have the ball in his hands more and more as they move forward so he'll at least be called the pg because people need a label but I'll just call him superstar.

Mitchell is an amazing talent, but i love that he is doing this well mainly because it means the Jazz wont be a playoff team

They might be a playoff team.
They have a lot of defensive studs, and a few consistent shot creators. West is looking weak this season.

He's great! Not only that but his game brings that OH SHIT factor, speaking as a fan, that's the stuff I love about sports. I can't even hate the kid, but the jealousy burns deep inside me. Fckn jazz.

They look like one now. If the GM makes the moves that he needs to make they could be really good but that's unlikely.
