Wow 2 40 pt games, as well as 4 30+ pt games, in his rookie year, carrying the Utah jazz to 6 game winning streak, 19 pt average. Ladies and gentlemen I think we have our ROTY

Jose Cardenas - 2018-02-04
Tatum for roty because of his all around game but Mitchell is impressive


Hoobastank Diaz - 2018-02-04
Donovan's landing mechanics aren't very good. He could have knee injuries at some point (but he's still young and his body can take it for the time being). The only good part of his landing mechanics is that he's willing to fall when off balance sometimes. He's also a smaller player, so the risk is a bit less, but he's also taking it to the hole all the time. His heels are always down when he runs (or lands). That means he does have better friction with the ground when moving forward, but it also means he's putting extra wear on his knees.

In my opinion, Mitchell isn't necessarily a high risk right now for a knee injury, but he IS probably wearing the elasticity out of his knees and a few years from now might become prone to knee injury.

He is willing to fall when his opponent crowds his space on a jumpshot, but he doesn't seem as willing to fall when he takes a contested awkward layup. He's so focused on the rim that his landing is set to default, and this results in him punching the floor with his heels a lot (Like Rose). If Rose is a 10/10 injury risk (WAS... Rose has cleaned up his game quite a bit since) Donovan is probably a 7-7.5/10... which means I give him 50/50 odds of suffering an achilles or serious knee injury during his career unless he cleans up his mechanics.

P.S. Dennis Smith is just a shade under Donovan in this regard. His landing mechanics are a bit worse, but he's also smaller and tends to beat guys to the rim instead of forcing his way to the rim.

Angry Turtle - 2018-02-03
Mitchell and Tatum are my favorite rookies this season.


TK14 NBA - 2018-02-03

If Hayward was still here, I’d say they’d have a good chance at the finals in a year or two


Kyle Abrahams - 2018-02-03

Lucas Marin - 2018-02-03
Find a way to put Booker in the Jazz and we have a future contender.


sezgin a - 2018-02-03
more athletic than curry and is a better shooter than westbrook.


sezgin a - 2018-02-03
this kid is a combination of wesbrook and curry, i think he will be better than them in the near future. the best rookie in the draft by a country mile. the best rookie ive seen in a long long time. he could average 30 7 7 on average like james harden, next year.


j.raimundo - 2018-02-03

Travis Travis - 2018-02-03
The 76ers would be a better team if they had Mitchell instead of Simmons. Likewise Jazz would be worse off if they had Simmons instead of Mitchell. ROTY
