  1. So much respect for DMitch. He has such a good understanding of the game and plays/talks as if he has been in the league for 10+ years. He’s extremely well spoken and I love his comments about arguing with the referees. Very mature for being a rookie

  2. does anyone else just not like this guy at all? I just hate his face and he seems like a douche. Fuck Mitchell, not ROTY

  3. This is the dawn of a New era! Basketball in general has been amazing this year, from college to the pros. OKC call sister jean!

  4. How would you compliment a low IQ ball dominant stat padder who focuses on shutting down Rubio instead of winning? He's very competitive. LOL

  5. Doesn't play like a rookie and sure as hell doesn't speak like a rookie. Props to Donovan for showing his growth and maturation on and off the court.

  6. It's crazy to me because it seems like people are talking MORE about the ROTY than MVP, and it's all because these young men are killing it this season, usually no one cares about the ROTY..

    Still hope #45 D-Mitch #LouisvilleCardinals wins it though

  7. Donovan Mitchell is a hell of a player but do not get it confused just because he is well spoken. Rookie of the Year will definitely go to Ben Simmons. Almost averages a triple-double and he's a rookie.

  8. Ben and Donovan both deserve rookie of the year, and should be allstars next season
    extremely talented and both hard working guys, Ben has an attitude but thats competitive nature for players
    Donovan seems like an intelligent and insightful guy #Goodluck

  9. If they can't determine who the Rookie of the Year is they should go by head-to-head stats when they played each other and so see who takes a team further in the playoffs cuz don't be surprised y'all the jazz is nice and if we got Ben Simmons and Donovan Mitchell playing in the finals we will have to decide the Roy like that LOL

  10. holy fuck i dont get why people say russ is "immature" for the shit he says, in the 90s they were way worse like mj used to talk so much shit, but when russ does it the worlds biggest problem and half of yall say the nba is "weak" and not like the 90s but when russ tries to bring that 90s aspect he gets so much shit for it

  11. The real ROTY which is D-mitchell btw.. Jazz can get that 3-1 tonight and I hope so and surprise the OKC blunder.

  12. I regret not watching this kid enough throughout the season. If I met him in person I'd apologize. I got caught in the Ben Simmons hype.
