I feel like the last sentence is the only thing that belongs in this thread. Everything else is a combination of "Cool Story Bro" and "Vent and Rant". Good work though.

this dude should easily be ROY, he is so much better then Simmons its not even funny. Simmons has empty stats and folds in the 4th quarter since he cant shoot while Mitchell literally puts his team on

That athleticism is off the charts, what a pure natural talent.. scary. He's got the entire package really (aside from posting up due to his height). He sort of reminds me of a hybrid between CJ Mccol

Sure, Simmons is #1 player in fantasy and real life. Discussion settled, let's move on :) 

Hahaha. I'm a Mitchell owner but a lifelong Sixer fan and devout process truster, so it's the best of both worlds.

Their offense is one of the worst offense in the league. They basically just pass the ball around for 22 secs and pass him the ball at the last second and he has no choice but to take the long contested three. :rolleyes:

Man, this kid needs some help. Should have 3-4 more assists..great passes but just brick city by his teammates. Scored the last 12 of the half to keep the team in it. Idk if that Mirotic trade will happen but it would surely help some. This offense is bad.

Pretty much.  They don't have anybody that can shoot really outside of Mitchell.  Hood has his games, but still.  Also, he was dead tired and they left him in there for the latter portion of the 3rd quarter.  He was able to beat his guy, but he was too tired to finish the layup.  Yeah, he's their best player at the moment and I like that he is getting a ton of minutes, but even he needs a breather.

not gonna complain (he is absolutely awesome for a rookie), but tbh i thought with the minutes and usage he has we would see better counting stats.

 

His assist numbers would be better if his team could just make shots tbh. 

 

The decline in rebounds can perhaps be attributed to his lack of willingness to exert energy? Dude has to carry the offensive burden night in night out as a rookie, maybe he doesn't chase for loose balls as much as he did before.

I think this is pretty much the reason. I'm guessing his assists will go up a tad after Rudy comes back.
