He deserved this thread.

He is a true leader. The truth.

He is still a rookie but obviously he could carry a team even without any superstar teammates, the feat that even LBJ did not able to do during his early years.

His Mom stays at our Hotel quite a bit, she is a real sweet down to earth lady
So I'm sure he's a Great Product from Great Upbringing.

We're really happy for him and the Success he is having in Utah

It would be a Shame if Coach Snyder didn't get Coach of the Year along with Donovan's Rookie of the Year Accolades

and multiple players suffered or suffering injuries and yet the still manage to get #2 seed in the east
and now has a chance to send phila back to reality from their fantasy ride

And Yet Utah is there without any All Stars...

No One on Planet Earth expected Jazz to even Make Playoffs, everyone Knew Boston would

Utah has beaten Powerhouse OKC and delivered Houston's only homecourt loss without Point Guard Rubio and

the Rockets are favored to Win the NBA Championship this year

21-year-old Jazz rookie was forced into a role change before his career even started, and it looks like a franchise-changing decision

Donovan Mitchell has transformed into a franchise star for the Utah Jazz, leading them in the playoffs with dominant performances.

The Jazz drafted Mitchell to be a role player this season, but following the departure of Gordon Hayward, they adjusted his role, and he embraced it, becoming their leading scorer.

Losing a star player like Hayward can cripple a small-market team, but Mitchell has filled that role and kept the Jazz afloat.

Donovan Mitchell already looks to be the NBA draft pick that other teams will kick themselves for letting slip through their fingers.

Taken with the 13th pick in the draft by the Utah Jazz, Mitchell has transformed into a star over the course of his rookie season, which he would argue has earned him Rookie of the Year honors.

On Wednesday, Mitchell's polish showed as he helped the Jazz steal home-court advantage from the Oklahoma City Thunder with a 102-95 Game 2 win. Mitchell scored 28 points, including 13 points in the decisive fourth quarter, to propel the Jazz to tying the series up at 1-1 as it shifts back to Utah.

Mitchell's production and ability to handle such a big stage so early in his career is jarring, mainly because even the Jazz didn't think he would be here quite yet. According to ESPN's Tim MacMahon, the Jazz drafted Mitchell because they believed he could produce right away with his athleticism and skill. Over time, they thought he could develop into a leading scorer.

But when Gordon Hayward left in free agency, a massive void was left on the team — the Jazz had plenty of complementary role players, but no one who could be a go-to scorer. Within months, Mitchell filled that void, impressing coaches with his ability to be learn something, pick it up, and add it to his game right away, according to MacMahon.

Mitchell has taken on a more significant load in the playoffs and performed admirably. He's averaging 27 points per game through two contests while shooting 44% from the field (though his three-point percentage has plummeted) and gotten to the line more frequently.

Mitchell's offensive game incorporates a bit of everything, all of it done smoothly. He's quick but never overly rushed, with strong, measured drives — such as the game-sealing basket on Paul George (45 seconds in the video below).

Mitchell has already joined some legendary company in his rookie season. He's the first rookie since Carmelo Anthony in 2004-05 to lead his team in scoring and make the playoffs. The list of rookies to lead their team in scoring on 48-win teams includes Wilt Chamberlain, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar, Larry Bird, and David Robinson. His 55 points through two playoff games topped Michael Jordan for most by a rookie player in his first two postseason games.

Of course, Mitchell couldn't be himself without the coaching of Quin Snyder (a Coach of the Year candidate), or the rim protection of Rudy Gobert (a Defensive Player of the Year) candidate, or even the supplementary playmaking, shooting, and defense of players like Joe Ingles, Ricky Rubio, Derrick Favors, and others. But they couldn't fill their roles as easily without Mitchell's ability to get a shot in almost any circumstance.

Perhaps the greatest testament to Mitchell's stardom is where the Jazz stood when Hayward, an All-Star forward, left and where they are now less than a year later — about the same place. When a small-market team loses a star player, it can be devastating. In the Jazz's case, they lost one and plugged in another.

The boy has to be careful. What he is doing now can shorten his career in NBA. He better slowdown some of his 7 ft tall play.
