Nah I think the voting actually got it right. He was probably the 4th best guard in the East, when looking at the entire season. That's not good enough to be a starter, but he should be picked as a reserve.
Coming in here to say I was dead wrong...Donovan Mitchell is absolutely deserving of being an All-Star starter, and should have been picked one.

He outplayed Lillard head to head, he outplayed Harden head to head...Mitchell shifted his game to point guard and setting everyone up while still playing at an elite level himself.
 
LeBron-like 4th quarter performance tonight. Just willed us to victory on back to back to back possessions and couldn't be denied.

There's only a small handful of players in the league that can do this, and we have one of them.

He should've been an ASG starter for sure.
 
Mitchell, who finished with eight assists, six rebounds, and two steals, had 20 of his 45 total points in the final frame... - Fedor

You got a guy who’s a closer. You got a guy who you feel like when the game is on the line, you have him, and they don’t. - JBB

I have been saying for a bit now you really cant trade Mitchell unless he forces you to, and no one says he has asked for a trade. The media is obsessed with no one ever wanting to play in Cleveland, and obviously we don't know how they really feel, but we have never heard anything negative from Mitchell, in fact its all positive.

Mitchell is one of maybe 10 players that can take over a game like he did last night, and you just cant trade that, especially when that player is entering his prime. He wont sign an extension until he has to, the longer he waits, the more money he makes, but Donovan is special.
 
yeah, with the way the national media constantly shits on the Cavs (and other small market teams)... I don't think their words are valid at all, unless Mitchell believes them too. I don't know if it's better that he came from a small market team, or if it would have been better to come from a big market (and know the grass isn't greener). Regardless, hopefully he's happy enough. He does seem frustrated with the complete lack of Cavs coverage in the national spotlight. (though, amazingly, NBA's twitter account even pinned Mitchell's performance last night. So plus 1 there).

One thing from following Mitchell's career since college that I have become accustomed to is that he is a true professional. He doesn't air out the dirt laundry for everyone to see. He keeps everything behind close doors where it should be. In Utah, even with the whole Gobert rumors/issues, he constantly downplayed them in the press and was always thought of as a good teammate by his peers. He never publicly demanded a trade (and who knows if he even did behind the scenes) and was all Jazz until he was traded. I would think the same would hold true for the Cavs.

You are new, (but a seemingly solid poster). I have brought up before about Mitchell is his professionalism. But you would know one of those reasons is because with his dad being an executive for the Mets since Donovan's early childhood, he has been around sports at a professional level his whole life. It shows in his approach to the game and as a pro.
