With development and age related regression I think it's likely that Mitchell will be better than him this upcoming season. The Jazz are going to need Mitchell to breakout into a top 15 player like Gobert to make a finals run.
We all hope Mitchell to take that extra leap next season.
Just realizing from this recent FIBA tournament, Ingles is a much better playmaker and leader than I thought he was, if he was given more of an opportunity to take the lead along with Conley.... Mitchell is probably the best scorer, but according to the current Jazz roster, is a score first, high usage ball dominate guard a good fit?

How did you not realize Ingles was the GOAT?
In all seriousness though... Ingles is not a better player than Mitchell is. I'm a huge fan of Ingles, he's got to be one of my favorite players in the league. I've also watched him play a hell of a lot because I'm a Jazz fan. He's got a high BBIQ, and doesn't particularly have any weaknesses in his game. He knows his limitations, and he knows how to utilize his abilities to maximum potential.
All that said... the intangibles that Joe has are more refined than Mitchell. I'd argue that a lot of that comes with time/experience. Mitchell is far and away the much more talented player. This coming season will only be his 3rd year in the league, and he has been at the helm leading this Jazz team into the Playoffs 2 years in a row. He in fact broke some rookie playoff records in his first campaign.
Gobert is the best player on the Jazz. However, I think Mitchell is very likely to develop to the point that he shares that crown with Gobert. They'll be best player A and B... and the complimentary aspect will be ideal because they possess such drastically different skill sets.
