The commentators keep saying Donovan plays like D Wade, I don't see it... He looks almost like a fundamentally-sound version of Iverson... which means he'll probably be in the conversation for the best player in the league in a couple of years...

And he's doing this in backward a**, racist a** Utah... For a league that is said to s*** on the small markets, they certainly outperform our megamarket on the regular. Only major market in the NBA is LA, pre-Flat Earther Nets

There are times when Mitchell drives that he looks a bit like Wade but I agree it’s far from a perfect comparison

The league doesn’t **** on small markets, the players do when it comes time for them to go into FA. The league does everything in its power to cater to the small market teams.

Man, I enjoy watching Mitchell, but young Baron Davis was one of the most explosive athletes I've ever seen on a basketball court. That was his calling card. Mitchell has some of that sauce like you say (big and quick), but Davis was the elite class of it to me.

Also, on a slight tangent, I'm pretty sure Baron was dealing with knee issues back in high school. He's right around the same age as me, and one of my fraternity brothers played with/against him in high school. Said he would roll into a gym in HS with big ass knee braces/pads on and people that didn't know him would be dubious. Then he'd shake anyone in his way on the perimeter and take off outside the lane before dunking straight down, like when the guy is way above the rim. The kid telling the story was probably the cockiest athlete I've ever met, and even he spoke reverentially and would just chuckle and shake his head while talking about it.

I think hes leaving too, but in the era of the woke players (see Irving) I think teams aren't going to be fumbling over themselves to offer him a contract. the guy is going to have to convince teams/front office that he isnt trying to be coach and gm and special treatment everywhere he goes.

Paul George is wild man. Guy can't even have the random "off night" when he scores 36 on 19 shots. Just straight up doodoo butter every time out.

Reggie Jackson being consistently more impactful than Paul George. I still can't wrap my head around it.
