Based on last year? Absolutely not. Not by any measure. You would have to have to have a space jam level stretch of logic to make that statement.
Any idea of Mitchell being better than Lowry is based on a projection. Are people seriously upset that others are projecting something different than them?
It seems like Mitchell was going to get in the top 25 but a bunch of Raptors fans decided to change that and vote THEIR guy in.
Do you think the Jazz would have been as good last year with Lowry instead of Mitchell?
Honestly, I don't think Toronto would have been as good with Mitchell instead of Lowry.
I think Mitchell is a better #1 and Lowry is a better #3 or #4
Lowry has spent years as the best player of a perennial 50 win team. He was just the 2nd best player on a championship team. Raw stats dont favour Mitchell. Impact stats absolutely dont favour mitchell. The idea that Mitchell was better last year than Lowry is the idea that scoring is more important than everything else in basketball (at average efficiency, no less), which is ridiculous. Lowry is a much better playmaker, defender, leader and is more efficient. Mitchell scores more at league average efficiency.
Lowry was better. Without question. If you want to point to age and say Mitchell will be better because he's younger and Lowry will hit the wall soon, so be it. Others dont project the same.
Way to dodge my question.
