Is Donovan Mitchell the best player in the Jazz-Clippers series? | Pardon the Interruption

Comments

  • Kawhi is very overrated if he was the best player in this series which in the comments on this video everyone seems to think that they would of won tonight but they didn’t yes kawhi had a great game but for someone who is considered top 5 or top 3 you should of token over the 4th quarter the only reason this game was close was because Reggie Jackson was on fire so yes Mitchell is the best player in this series Edit I’m not saying this all time all time kawhi is better but in this series Mitchell is 100% better then kawhi and he will continue to be the best player in this series

  • Yes

  • Everyone gets caught up in the moment. He has a few good games and now ppl think he is the best. Like Jamal Murray last year. Luka is younger and has better playoff numbers

  • how is Kawhi Leonard not a star???????

  • AHAHAAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAAHHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHHAHAHQHAHAHQHAQHHAHAHQHHQHQHQHQHQ Donovan better than Kawhi? AHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHHAHAHAAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHHAAHHHAHHQHAHQHAHAHQHHQHQHQHAHQHQHHQQHQHQHHQQHQHQ

  • its just 1 game and they talking as if its over!!

  • Kawhi is the best player in this series easily unlike last series Luka was clearly the best player in that series Mitchell AINT no scrub but he ain’t there yet

  • Mitchell is the best sg besides Harden but don’t disrespect kawhi he’s for sure better for now

  • Joe Biden Needs to continue to push and NOT try to get republicans who just want to obstruct. Keep Biden accountable. Money and jobs to people. Less money for defense corporations and more to people who need it! Get rid of filibuster! Green New Deal! Forgive student loans debt!!!

  • You niggas question kawhi every time he touches the playoffs, this is what kawhi does

  • yes so far he was better last night

  • Mike Wilbon just backtracked on his own words ....

  • No he ain't

  • Kawhi is the best player in the world 🌍🌎

  • yall did this in mavs vs clippers too w luka...stop this bs

    • luka is NOT KILLER INSTINCT DONOVAN DEFINITELY IS

  • Do y’all even watch the videos lol they both said kawhi

  • NO

  • He's called CYBORG for a reason. Stop the hate!!

  • Did this man say kawhi is not a star player

  • I feel like they just disrespected kawhi and Donovan. Cause 1. Kawhi is a superstar… and 2. Donovan is for sure the best player in THIS series

  • Lets see if he gets past this round...he plays with heart..& goes hard almost every posession! Def up and coming superstar

  • I was enjoying this right up until Tony said Kawhi is not a star. I repeated it multiple times just to be sure that's what he said. The media is running this new thing about who's the best player based on single game performances. Mitchell had a great game. Kawhi is still this best player.

  • D. Mitchell is going to be around a long time. I don't really think he's even as good as he can be yet

  • Did he really say Kawhi leonard is not a star??? Cant take these clowns seriously

  • Lol yall gonna be calling him trash when the Jazz lose one

  • Regardless of if Donavan isn’t as good as Kawhai, the fact that he is in conversations such as this is fantastic. So proud of you Donavan keep grinding bro.

  • Utah all day!!!!

  • Lmao y’all really gotta stop being prisoners of the moment from game to game

  • Mitchell is good but he is no Kawhi Leonard.. people just say anything nowadays😂

  • I'm still upset that Phil Jackson decided to draft Frank Ntilikina to the Knicks over Donovan Mitchell in the 2017 NBA Draft. SMH

  • Kawhi need some in game chapstick🤦🏾‍♂️😅

  • Y’all are so disrespectful to Kahwi😭

  • No. He is number 3. He is far better than Playoff P though.

  • Kahwi might be better individualy but mitchel has more help than kahwi. Conley did not play in game 1 and that is why donavan played ISO game because he is really a SG not a PG if Conley is back he can make better plays for the team and involve the role players better other than donavan. Jazz is a team that involves all players clippers only rely on kahwi and PG so it is still a Jazz for me for defense, offense, and rebound. Jazz in 6

  • I mean no Donovan Mitchell is not better than Kawhi Leonard, but he is coming. Kawhi is a top 8 player at worst and Id say Mitchell is arguably top 15 and surely top 20 but there is a significant drop off in there from 11 to 12 separating the stars from the superstars. The point is Donovan Mitchell is more than capable of playing like the best player in this series for 7 games

  • It has only been one game you clowns.

  • Y'all gotta chill. How is this an actual title?

  • For being so much better, he seems to play a lot worse

  • Oh y’all love disrespecting Kawhi I see

  • Disrespectful to Kawhi

  • Cmon bruh, yal didn't even have mitchell top 15 before this playoffs, now you wanna put him above kawhi who you had top 5 🤔

    • @Alec Winter because of injuries

    • he was 15th in MVP voting so I'd say he was at least in the top 15 conversation.

  • Kawhi is the currently best player in the whole NBA league. And the Best two way player who ever played the basketball.

    • he's not the best two way player ever. Michael Jordan is.

  • It took 45 from dmitch, a 2/17 paul george and an absent kawhi for the jazz to win by THREE. Yea no, im confident in the clippers

    • jazz are way too stacked

    • You better hope Conley stays out. And, that the Jazz don't punish Lue for putting Batum on Gobert.

    • It took the Jazz missing 20 straight shots for the Clippers to only be up by 12 at halftime. The Jazz aren't going to shoot that poorly again.

  • 1 game and y’all saying this 🤦🏾‍♂️

  • Mitchell was the best player in game one...... No question

  • How many times does Kawhi need to show he is the best Playoff player in NBA History

  • *No, Kawhi is.* Dovan Mitchell is a Great Player but hes never reached Kawhis Level.

  • GOD NO!

  • hes the best scorer

  • Spida is special but he aint Kawhi. I bet he knows that too

  • All these "experts" seem to forget defense is at least 40% of the game

  • Kawhi not a star... Bruh tf you talking about

  • The media and NBA hate Kawhi because (A) He refused to join their idol Lebron and the Lakers(at the same time the same people criticize KD for joining GSW) (B) He is not hyper-emotional or extroverted like the other stars, therefore he is hard to read and does not provide enough media stories for their liking (C) They are annoyed with him for making them look bad last year when they almost all picked LAC to win the Chip

  • He's arguably the 2nd best. Im the biggest Spida fan, but no way he's better than Kawhi. Hes going off though!

  • This network has the same amount of letters as the word JOKE. Is that a coincidence? We'll discuss after the break.

  • What?!?! The series just started. Only 1 game has been played. Let the series finish before we ask any foolish questions

  • 100th comment

  • No the best player is Paul George you love to see a wing player with no defense and can shoot 4/17 and gives up 45 points

  • They both say Kahwi is better than Donovan. The title is just clickbait.

  • NBA- Where narratives after every game happens

  • No. Did you guys forget Kawhi is there? He is an all-time great in the postseason. The series just started.

  • Kawhi is the best player in the series no doubt

  • These “experts” have the audacity to debate if Mitchell is better than Kawhi

  • Yes

  • No it’s the KLaw….it was just one game……2 times dpoy….. 2 times finals mvp

  • Donovan Mitchell just does not really create a lot of shots for others. And we’ll see if he can hit the midrange jumpers the Clipper will force him to.

  • They have to make Mitchell shoot midrange jump shots rather than 3’s or at the basket.

  • Lmao this is just one game and this "analysts" are already overreacting 🤦

  • I understand you guys be needing things to talk about but ya not deada$$

  • Guys, remain calm, don't panic nor sell your Cryptocurrency or Bitcoin. Market is just manipulated, and this is a great opportunity to buy the dip, because it would be at affordable price.

    • Give me some crypto, thank you

    • James comes highly recommend best TA guy by for worked with during the fall.

    • I have tried 5 programs and pattern before reaching out to James, I can swear his program is the best for now

    • Mr James Maurice of financial education have really made name for himself.

    • Mr James has brought me out of the wrenches and to a better living through trading options, I encourage newbies to trade with him.

  • yes he is.

  • That second move Embid put on Capela was an offensive foul.

  • Kawhi Leonard is not a star but is a great player? This statement doesn’t make sense

    • @jix mad kawhi is definitely a super star

    • Who is the star than? A North star? Lmfao

  • Kawhi Leonard's not a star ? What are they saying lol

    • they said Mitchell isn't a star either so don't be too suprised.

  • Kawhi isn’t a star?🤡🤡🤡

  • I mean, it’s only one game... And Clippers coming off that crazy 7 game series and still played pretty good at the start of the game but in the second half of the game the Jazz shows that they definitelyhad more rest and got the advantage of it. Anyways, it’s one game way too early to say Mitchell is the best player.

    • @Buddy Gass bro get over it. You acting like Gobert JC and Ingles didn’t play great in the first two. Gobert had like 20-15 or something in one game and the other two was on fire. That’s what I’m saying, you acting like Mitch didn’t get help in the wins and saying how good he is at scoring, and I’m not saying Kawhi don’t get help. I’m just stating that Mitchell aren’t helping his team much at all, don’t even reply if you’re bring up another topic on Kawhi got PG in games 3 and 4 and Mitch did it all alone in games 1 and 2 blah blah it’s too much. I don’t care whose fan you are but i know you’re wither a Mitchell fan or just a Kawhi Hater.

    • @K W hey uh just wanted to let you know I’m not a jazz fan and I didn’t even know who he was until the end of last year and when I said I’m speaking facts I meant that Mitchell has helped his team way more in this see series pretty much making him better in the series again if one guy is putting up almost 40 points a game while the other is putting up like 25-30 points per game maybe a little more that’s quite a difference also again Mitchell doesn’t have pg yes Mitchell has Rudy but offensively he hasn’t been that great also I like how in the first two games pg played terrible kawhi did. good but still but in these past two game pg has went off and you’ve on both games also by the way the jazz don’t have Conley

    • @Buddy Gass Good for you man you constantly saying you speaking facts but not bringing up any facts, all you’re telling me is how biased you are and in fact if you’re bring up Kawhi getting help Jazz only won the first two coz J.Clarson came up big in those 2 games. It’s a team sport everyone’s gonna get some help once in a while. I brought up facts statistically to prove my point all you’re bringing up is a flop that no media or anyone talks about? Not very convincing to me atleast. Anyways no point talking a someone whose mind can’t be changed since he’s just too biased to Mitchell, bye👋🏻

    • @K W ight and again what has kawhi done pg in these last two games has done way more also by the way at the end of 4th game kawhi was just straight flopping like a fish lol 🤣also isn’t kawhi supposed to be at least a top 3 top 5 player in the league his stats aren’t that great for a guy that good I mean Jesus lebron did way better without the refs on his in the playoffs 🤣🤣🤣I give big credit to the clippers and kawhi but he’s just not better Mitchell again I’m not lying I’m just speaking straight facts and again tell me how kawhi has done better then Mitchell in this series other then defense not only that kawhi couldn’t make a shot at the end of the game pg had to come in and save kawhi I actually do really like kawhi but he’s just not better sometimes the truth hurts bud have a great day or night

    • @Buddy Gass You making me laugh for real bro, boy takes 28 shots per game that’s the only reason he averages more, Kawhi takes like 20 per game. And speaking of facts the boy averages more free throws attempts as well you gotta check that for real not by what you feel. Also bcoz he seems to shoot too much which means he don’t pass that much the Jazz hardly has assists in this series under Clips defense. And yes, statistically he is averaging more but hey if stats determine anything James Harden would be the Goat. By the touches he has every game he doesn’t even average 4 assists which is pretty concerning, without Conley he has the ball in his hands way too much and Jazz as a team average only 16 assists this series which is absolutely bad.

  • Media just throws anything out there just to fill time on a 30 minute show. Mitchell had a 45 point game and he is a star, but Kawhi is top 5. That doesn't mean he will have a better series, but come on now

  • So he the best because he has a rings maaaan this is stupid

  • Donovon Mitchell has had a lot more rest than Kawhi this postseason. Lets watch more than a single game before we pick the best player of the series.

    • @SuperDerezzed No. Kawhi forgot he was playing basketball until game 3 last series too.

    • Is 2 games enough?

  • Let's not forget one of Kawhi Leonard's championships was handed to him. The warriors were decimated with injuries.

    • Handed? Lol. You can’t discredit that mans accomplishment like that. They played stiff competition in the East even before they got to the Warriors and Klay played a lot of that series. Ppl want to rewrite history to act Like he was playing versus Oubre and Wiggins as the leading men. Haha Stop it. He put in work that whole playoffs. That was earned!

  • He just beat Luka cmon stop with the Kawhi slander

  • I can't wait for Paul George to score 40 then everybody's going to be like is Paul George the best player in the playoffs. LoL every single game that passes is a totally new best player in basketball story. 😂

    • Nah PG has fallen off, if he still had a 40 point game in him he would have done it against the Mavs who are a much worse defensive team than the Jazz.

    • *Max Kellerman vigorously shakes head*

    • lmao fr

  • Mitchell is the Best Scorer in the series

  • Only 1 game and media goes crazy.

  • Ok I know we lost but slow down Mitchell isn’t anywhere close to Kawhi

  • SMH these guys are just shock jocks, not analyst. No one in their right mind would ever pick Donovan Mitchell over Kawhi. Donovan Mitchell has never done anything like Kawhi just did in the Mavs series.

    • @Alec Winter I guess you’re taking offense to the Mavs series comment. I think he’s a good player but he’s never had to give you 30 and try to stop the best player on the opposing team. If you replaced Mitchell with Kawhi in that series, I would say it’s a 5 or 6 game series with the Mavs winning.

    • @Joshua Warren I don’t disagree with anything you just said. But your original comment was stupid and far from the truth.

    • @Alec Winter Kawhi’s just a better player across the board. The only thing Donovan Mitchell has over Kawhi is his athletic ability. But besides from that Kawhi is better in everything. He’s not at his peak defensively, but he’s still really good and Mitchell not really good on that end and anyone would want Kawhi because the most important position right now is the bigger wing who can guard the likes of Lebron, KD and himself, who have won most of the championships recently or you had to go through them to win, so he brings much more value to the defensive end. And his offensive percentages are just better across the board

    • @Joshua Warren I'm sorry, you don't get to use the 1st round against the Mavericks as the catylist to Mitchell never doing anything like Kawhi just did. The Mavs have no rim protector or any defensive threat for that matter. What Kawhi has done in the past has nothing to do with what you said he did in the first round. Literally nothing. Mitchell has absolutely done something similar to what he did in that round.

    • @Alec Winter what’s the argument? There are levels and Mitchell was going against a pretty weak defense, Denver doesn’t have many good defenders. Jokic is a great player but he’s no rim protector. Mitchell’s on the come up but he hasn’t done anything yet, he’s never made it to the WCF, while Kawhi got crucified for not making it to the WCF. Kawhi’s still a champion in his prime.

  • Kawhi always starts off slow I’m series, donavon has been great but Gobert is the difference maker for Kawhis play in this series.

  • The Kawhi disrespect is insane

    • Disrespect ? What has he ever really done ? What win a flukey finals MVP in 2014 because he held leBron to 28 ppg instead of 30 😂 or beat a broken down warriors team in 2019

    • @Trivendra Khardia media hated kawhi since his last year in San Antonio when his team thru him under the bus...beating the warriors in the finals with Toronto n telling LeBron no didn't help either...lol

    • Its bcoz of there kawhi and clippers arrogance last year. I am big spida fan and I know he is not better than kawhi they are just talking bs.

  • Kawhi Leonard is not a star? WHAT

  • This brother Donvan Mitchell is D Wade 2.0 with better outside shot

  • Nah kiwi better then him but jazz have gober so Dmitch could end up looking like the best player in this series

  • So refreshing to see so many basketball Scholars on this thread who Clearly say Kawhi !Spider is great and destined to be a first balloter but not a champion there,thankfully. But mainly let's stop the disrespect of the claw he's a beast and arguably top three in the NBA discussion always!

  • Kawhi learned from the Goats of the Spurs... He even got Finals MVP against the Heat Big 3... Mitchell still has ways to go... Let him first try to win the series...

    • @Skylar Staten It's game 1. When it's a close out game I'm sure Kawhi's D will get better. Just ask Luka

    • @chris anthony kawhi was guarding mitchell when mitchell went on his rampage in the second half, were you even watching the game?

    • @ScootMagoot46 they just gotta put kawhi on mitchell and the clamps begain

    • I love DM and this is true.

    • They have to make Mitchell shoot midrange jump shots rather than 3’s or at the basket.

  • D-Mitchell is D-Rose with a better jump shot but Kawhi is the better player of two atm in this series tho.

  • donovan balled out last game but cmon... yall know better

  • Wilbon either looks real good or sick

  • Stop….

  • Lmao Atlanta has suffered enough Wilbon …. We just called it Lloyd pierce

  • It's one game..smh. let's at least wait for a couple more games.

  • I never knew after one game, Donovan Mitchell could be the best player in the series already? 🤣 Kawhi Leonard is the best player in the Western Conference. The only star with rings still left in these playoffs.

    • @LoftyXsWaGX34 leBron was the MVP favorite lol he was having an unprecedented season for his age

    • What about two games?

    • It's a TV program, they're just trying to find something dramatic to talk about.

    • @LoftyXsWaGX34 curry a better 3 pt shooter but he’s definitely not better then Kawhi. And imma curry fanboy lowkey.

    • @Sendo when he's healthy the only player in the west arguably better is kawhi.
