Okay? Those are all speculative in nature. While I appreciate the hot take, you really can't back any of this up.
It's not really a hot take to say a 33 year old point guard will be worse at age 34 and a 22 year old shooting guard will be better at 23.
Mitchell was the only player on team USA that scored double digits against France, and he put up 29, 6, and 4 on 52/50/100% shooting splits. He's primed for a monster season.
We've seen this before with Derrick Rose, Westbrook, Durant, Harden, ect. killing it with team USA and then having a monster season. We've also seen point guards be worse at age 33 and 34. Chris Paul and Lowry being voted above Mitchell is a joke.
Did you wait until he had one game where his numbers look good on the surface to post this? If anything team USA's loss with him as one of the faces should question his ability to carry a team anywhere when it matters the most. Just like it has when the us media crucified Lowry for years when he wasn't really underperforming (save for one year). Not a joke he can prove that he's better this year (which I think he will TBH). Until that happens, cp3 and Lowry are better in my books.
