Of course Mitchell said he's gonna immediately sign the extension, he's an RFA. What would the alternative be? He takes the QO and puts off his payday for almost 2 years? His and Giannis' situations are nothing alike.

Who is blaming the series entirely on Giannis? I don't think anyone is disputing that the backcourt sucked, coaching sucked, and there were a lot of other factors leading to the loss. But Giannis dramatically underperforming relative to his regular season play is one of them. In the 3 straight games to go down 0-3 he put up 22.7 on 45/15/54 shooting, that's awful by his standards tbh. If he even just slightly underperforms we're probably up 2-1 after 3 games.
That's talking out of both sides of your mouth. You're either blaming him or you're not blaming him. Going by your last sentence, you are blaming him.
You understand that multiple people can be blamed for a 5-game series loss, right? We don't have to boil it down to just 1 or 2 parties?
This is such a weird position to take. He's the back to back MVP and for the most part played like **** by his standards. Of course he deserves part of the blame for this series loss. Not all of it, but definitely some.
