Donovan Mitchell took a lot of shots to get his 25 points. It didn’t end up so bad because he was so clutch at the end, but when you’re taking more shots, in this case 28, than the amount of points you have, you know it’s not a good game.
By that standard, Allen Iverson had approximately three “good games” over his whole career, so maybe that’s a sign that I need to reevaluate my criteria.
Speaking of AI, is he a good comp for Mitchell or nah? I think I’m going to make the comparison anyway because I want people to like me and the easiest way to achieve that is to compare rookies to all-time greats. And speaking of that, did you hear about Lauri Markkanen who is the white Kevin Durant?
