Rookie of the Year Award: The case for Donovan Mitchell

With Gordon Hayward leaving for Boston, the Jazz needed a new face of the franchise No one expected Donovan Mitchell to become just that in his rookie year The 21-year-old shooting guard has played at a superstar level at some points of the season His scoring ability has taken the NBA by storm, averaging 19.8 ppg No other player drafted 13th or lower has scored as much as a rookie in the last 35 years He's also the second player in the last 20 years with multiple 40-point games as a rookie He's not just a volume scorer, though, but also one of the best players in the league in crunch time already He's No.
